MLB's ASG MVP - Dirty Boy

Major League Baseball announced today that Melky Cabrera, outfielder for the San Francisco Giants, has been suspended and banned from the league for 50 games after testing positive for performance enhancing drugs.  Cabrera was named the MVP at the All Star Game, and is batting .346 with 11 home runs and 60 RBIs.  He is a big reason the Giants are in the position they are in, first place in their division with the Dodgers right behind them.

Though the suspension hits this dirt bag hard, and it hurts the Giants for the rest of the season, it's not enough.  Here you have one of the key components producing the current level of Giants' success has been found out to have been 'juiced' while playing.  The Giants should forfiet all games he played in between the time of the drug test and his suspension today, with the other teams gaining the victories. 

The results of the All Star Game should be reversed - not the score, for who cares about that?  The all important home field advantage for the World Series should now be awarded to the American League team.
