Everyone is talking about the Melky Cabrera situation. Fans are debating whether or not the team should add him to the playoff roster when he’s eligible (6th game of the playoffs).
The San Francisco Giants are going to make an announcement soon on their plans for Cabrera. This is expected to end all of the speculation as to whether Cabrera will be welcomed back to the organization with open arms, or kicked to the curb to watch his team (former team) make a run at the 2012 World Series Championship!
While writing this, CSNBayArea.com is breaking news that the Giants are expected to announce today that Cabrera will not be part of the Giants postseason roster.
I believe the Giants should activate Cabrera when he’s eligible. He was a key factor in the Giants success prior to his suspension. I know they have played better without him, but left field is still a problem for the G-men.
Even if they don’t want to give him the starting job in left field. He still can help them off the bench in a key at bat with runners on base. Now I ask, why wouldn’t you want to bring him back to help you win? He’s served his time for his suspension. He could be a shot in the arm to the team during the National League Championship Series, or at least be a threat off the bench.
Then again, all this speculation could be for not if the Giants can’t get past the National League Division Series (1st round).
