Gaslamp Ball Proclamation: Bud Selig should posthumously award Armando Galarraga his perfect game

Gaslamp Ball will occasionally provide endorsements and judgments in the world of baseball and beyond. Should Gaslamp Ballers need to cast a vote or require an official opinion, look for Gaslamp Ball Proclamations first to see what our official stance is. Thank you.

After reflecting upon Armando Galarraga's blown perfect game, Gaslamp Ball has decided that Bud Selig in fact should enact his Pope-like powers in representing the Baseball Gods and reverse Umpire Jim Joyce's ridiculous call, but only after all of the parties involved (Jim Joyce, Bud Selig, Jason Donald, and the entire Detroit Tigers infield) have been dead 25 years.

The requirement of death is only to add another layer of strangeness to this already curious incident.
