When I first heard that Major League Baseball decided to pretend that Melky Cabrera would not be the 2012 NL batting champion despite the fact that the Rules of Major League Baseball clearly say that he should be, I got mad and wrote a bunch of stuff.
The second thing I did? I wondered what Sean Forman over at Baseball-Reference.com was going to do about it.
While Baseball-Reference.com is not the official keeper of the records of Major League Baseball, it is the defacto keeper. Especially for the online folks us. And as we a week or two ago when we talked about the all-time hits list, there can be some variation between its records and the official ones of Major League Baseball. So: is Mr. Forman going to give Melky Cabrera that black ink and include him in the league leaders, or not?
