Melky's getting punished... no batting title, couldnt play in the WS, and probably lost about 20 million in guaranteed money on the open market because of what he did.

Honestly I think thats punishment enough... someone was going to pay this guy to play, and I'm glad it was us.
Don't get me wrong, I like having him on board, I just think he needs a year to prove himself that he can still be a good hitter while off the PEDs before receiving a multi year deal.
