    Melk-man gives up the batting title.

    Well, good. But it's hilarious that missing as many games as he has, he still would have qualified?

    NEW YORK -- Melky Cabrera lost the right to play baseball by failing a drug test and now he has given up his chance to win the National League batting title.Cabrera was disqualified from the NL batting honor at his own request when Major League Baseball and the players' association agreed Friday to a one-season-only change in the rule governing the individual batting, slugging and on-base percentage champions.

    Re: Melk-man gives up the batting title.

    There is a rule that says if you are within a couple ABs to making the minimum, they'll give you a 0for and get you to the minimum number of at bats.

    What happened though, is Melky asked for this rule to be waved, cause he was one short. He didn't ask to be takin out of the running for steroids, he asked that "this rule" not be applied.

    Total PR move as he tries to get a contract for next season.

    Toronto could use outfielders that make contact......hyuk.


    He'll get a second chance. At a severely discounted price.
