I agree with this.
then why do the stats count towards MLB season stats. These stats matter for HR crowns, BA championships and will appear on baseball cards. Why not have them in fantasy?
Because MLB will throw a little * next to anything should they need to. As an example, if someone broke Barry Bonds' single season home run record in their 163rd game (or even tied it), that person truely didn't break (or tie) the single season home run record, regardless of what it says on paper.
It's an "extra" game, and as such, it shouldn't count for anything other than deciding which team makes it into the playoffs.
