Melky Cabrera Will Get a World Series Ring, But He Thinks He Won’t

The man formerly known as the “Melk-man” is now a disgraced figure in San Francisco. Good thing he plays for the Blue Jays now.

Nonetheless, Melky Cabrera is entitled to a 2012 World Series ring, despite being suspended in August for violating MLB’s drug policy.

Cabrera, though, told reporters in Toronto that he might not receive a ring from the Giants because he hasn’t heard from them about it.

“I feel I deserve it,” Cabrera said. “I gave everything I had to the organization, but I understand if they decide not to give me one.”

He also commented on the fact that the Giants did not re-instate him in their postseason roster after he served his 50-game suspension.

“I wish I could have played,” he said. “But I understand their decision.”

Back to the ring for a second, because the Giants say Cabrera will be getting one.

“He’s getting a ring. We have his ring size,” Giants communication executive Staci Slaughter told the San Francisco Chronicle. “I don’t know where that’s coming from.”

No word on how Cabrera will be receiving his ring, because an on-field ceremony will surely not sit well with the fans. The Blue Jays visit AT&T Park for a two-game series on June 4 and 5.
