He also said he has "no wish to win an award that would be tainted," and that he felt "it would be far better for someone more deserving to win."

Funny thing is, a Giant might still win it. Buster is batting .335, Cutch is at .339.
Would be awesome if Posey took it. I think this is Melky's way of trying to make amends with the Giants organization, in the hopes that if the Giants go far enough in the playoffs, they'll let him play. Dunno if that'll happen though.
