Here’s the third part of my Melkman Trilogy. When Cabrera was cheating this season, how did he feel about it? He was the All Star Game MVP. Fans in SF went nuts over him. The media lavished him with praise. He was a sports hero.
Did he feel like a fraud? In his place, I would have.
Did he feel guilty, lose sleep?
Did he tell himself all that mattered was his results on the field no matter how he got them — the end justified the means?
Did he tell himself everyone else cheated, so he was just one of the guys?
Did he not even ask himself about himself?
I wonder. What do you think?
