DUNEDIN, Fla. – Here's another case of baseball justice vs. real world justice.
Admitted performance-enhancement drug user Melky Cabrera made his first appearance as a Toronto Blue Jay on Friday morning, refusing to take questions about his PED past. Yet he did take a question about his place on the world champion San Francisco Giants, and he was quite honest.

Wouldn't it feel a little like real world justice if the cheater didn't get a ring? Cabrera said he had no idea if he would get one. He said the Giants have not asked for his size.
