Buster Olney of ESPN reports that it is Melky Cabrera’s preference to not re-sign with the Blue Jays. Nothin’ personal, but he just doesn’t want to play on artificial turf.
It’s not clear that the Jays are willing to bring him back, actually, because they spent $85 million on Russell Martin and there’s only so much free agent dough to go around in Toronto.
In other news, Cabrera is correct that artificial turf sucks. So there’s that.
