San Francisco Giants outfielder Melky Cabrera reportedly created a fictitious website and a nonexistent product designed to prove he inadvertently took testosterone, the banned substance that caused a positive test under Major League Baseball’s drug program, and cause Cabrera to be suspended for 50 games.

Apparently, Cabrera knew of the positive test, and tried to do some damage control. At least, he tried to come up with a scheme whereby he would have a defense by saying he unknowingly took the illegal substance.

The website, purchased by an associate of Cabrera’s from the Dominican Republic named Juan Nunez, cost a total of $10,000.

The product, advertised as a topical cream, was going to anchor Cabrera’s defense during his appeal.

According to the New York Daily News baseball figured out the scam pretty quickly.

Wow! Talk about a bizarre story!

Cabrera’s reputation took a jab with the positive result, but this is a knockout blow. A free agent at the end of the year, Cabrera will find a home, San Francisco, or somewhere else, but he cost himself a lot of money with not only the transgression, but the attempted cover up.
