In separate incidents, All-Star game Most Valuable Player Melky Cabrera of the San Francisco Giants and Former AL Cy Young Award winner Oakland Athletics starter Bartolo Colon were both suspended for 50 games for testing positive for testosterone.

Let’s take this now to the specific level.
Should Melky Cabrera and Bartolo Colon have received these lengthy suspensions?
As always, make sure to show how your position is for the greatest good (utility) and respects basic rights (deontology)
