ESPN Analyst Rick Sutcliffe Wants Melky Cabrera Deported, Has Lost It
Melky Cabrera got suspended 50 games after testing positive for PEDs last week, the usual punishment for such offenses. Shortly thereafter, though, it was revealed that this wasn’t quite just your garden variety PED case: it was an offense Cabrera and his team reportedly tried to cover up with a fake website, a subplot that garnered attention from feds, in addition to MLB (UPDATE: MLB banned the person responsible). Any investigation, though, is still ongoing, and might lead to nothing at all, and as far as MLB is concerned, Cabrera’s doing his punishment in the form of the suspension.
But some people want more. People like former MLB pitcher/former owner of one of baseball’s best beards/current color commentator Rick Sutcliffe. Sutcliffe appeared on Michael Kay’s radio program yesterday (a program on which crazy things have been said before), and he’s angry about Cabrera’s positive test. How angry? Well, Sutcliffe thinks he should be sent off. “Wait, so he thinks the Giants should outright get rid of him?” you might say. And… not quite:
Now. We’re not lawyers. That’s important to get out there right now. But these people are lawyers in California. Here’s a brief passage, with the most important word highlighted:
If you are a legal alien who has been —->convicted<---- of a deportable offense in California, the Department of Homeland Security may prosecute you in immigration court.
Major League Baseball suspended Cabrera for testing positive for testosterone (against baseball rules, but only against actual law if you don’t have a prescription). That’s not exactly a criminal conviction. Again, maybe something will come of this whole odd fake website business, but as of now, nothing has. So saying you want to kick a guy out of the country because he apparently cheated at baseball is, well, we just wonder if Sutcliffe had a moment like this after his radio spot ended:
