The Blue Jays Sign Melky Cabrera

Despite being busted for performance enhancing drugs and then attempting lie his way out of it, Melky Cabrera has reportedly agreed to a 2 year, $16 million deal with the Toronto Blue Jays.

Melky was one of the most interesting free agents this off season due to his unique 2012 campaign. Before being benched for 50 games following his positive test, “The Melk Man” was having a career year, leading the National League with a .346 average. Obviously It is unclear exactly how much of that success can be attributed to performance enhancers, making an investment in Cabrera an expensive roll of the dice.

This off season continues to be one of the most eventful in the history of the Toronto franchise.  Earlier this week the club traded a hodgepodge of journeymen and prospects to Miami for stars Jose Reyes, Josh Johnson and Mark Buehrle, and before that they let their manager John Farrell go to the rival Red Sox. As for Cabrera, he’ll be returning to the AL East where he spent the first  six years of his career as a member of the New York Yankees.
