OT: Dallas Braden


#1

This is the guy that was having the media tiff with A-Rod. Looks like his 15 minutes of fame turned into immortality pretty quick. Only the 19th perfect game ever.

Not being a fan of how A-roid plays the game, I enjoyed that Dallas Braden threw the no-hitter extending his 15 minutes of fame;and, I really liked Braden’s grandmother’s response to A-roid. ;D

Here is an interesting bit of analysis concerning Yankee players getting around the basses after hitting a homerun; and it does not surprise me who the slowest one is:http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748704446704575206144193925572.html?mod=WSJ_latestheadlines#articleTabs%3Darticle

If you liked that bit of obscure analysis you might enjoy this site that is traking all “tator trots”: http://tatertrottracker.com/

Another site that makes procrastinating easy for the baseball fan:http://baseballanalysts.com/ I was surprised by the analysis concerning whether or not Jamie Moyer is a Hall of Fame candidate?

OK… now I must get back to work :frowning:

Dallas Braden +1

Another interesting note.

Wade McGilberry won a million dollars for pitching the first perfect game in MLB 2K10 (the video game).

Braden’s 2010 salary? $420K

He gave Letterman’s Top 10 list the other night. Still taking cuts at ARod. :slight_smile:


#6

Pretty good delivery too. More props to him.

Braden says he isn’t worthy of congratulating Roy Halladay
