Suspended Player could win award

The San Francisco Giant's slugger Melky Cabrera is serving a huge suspension in the MLB. The suspension is for using Performance Enhancing Drugs to improve. Obviously this is illegal in the MLB and he got a punishment equivalent to the rule breaking. He was having a breakout year this year and he was nominated to be a heart and hustle winner. This would be a bad public image for the player and the team. He lied about cheating and he shouldn't be allowed to win the award. The only reason was nominated is because they were announced in July and his suspension began in August. The fan vote accounts for only 5% of the vote, so he probably won't be winning any awards soon.\
