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
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
Pretty good delivery too. More props to him.
