I haven’t been here in a while… sorry… but I just had to talk about this.
Imagine that you are kinda good at your job, and then suddenly, you do something so good that almost nobody can do it.
A guy who was picked 727th (!) in the draft… a guy in his second major league season, a guy who’s basically earning the minimum you can… pitches a perfect game. He’s the 19th guy to do it in over a hundred years.
No hits. No walks. No base runners of any kind.
Congratulations Dallas Braden! I think you’re getting a raise next year!
