Melky: Orange spikes are 'cute'

OK, so maybe the color of Melky Cabrera's spikes -- BRIGHT ORANGE -- had no correlation with hitting the All-Star Game's lone home run and winning the MVP Award on Tuesday night. But it is possible.

"I brought my own spikes from San Francisco," said Cabrera. "But I wore them because I thought they were cute."

And if he wears them for every Giants game from here on out ... well, you won't hear us complaining.
