Melky Cabrera got busted for steroids use last year, only a little while after he was named the MVP of the 2012 All-Star Game.

Obviously, his credibility is not exactly at its highest level at the moment – and leaving a pretty weak tip on a big bill is not going to help.

Especially when your waitress doubles as a sports blogger. Chi Sox Diaries’ Melissa Dickson’s boyfriend was playing for the Mets’ Single-A affiliate in Port St. Loucie, Fla.; Cabrera was in town on a Minor League rehab assignment for the Blue Jays. She posted the below photo and caption to her Facebook page.

Luckily, Dickson’s boyfriend, Hamilton Bennett, was called up to Double-A Binghamton the very next day.

That’s far better news than having a guy worth millions of dollars saddle you with a #Stingy tip, now isn’t it?
