    Is he good enough to compete against A-rod now?

    Re: Dallas Braden throws perfect game

    In the box score it says there was an error. What happened there?

    The Rays had an error, not the A's.

    I see that now, on a different box score. Must have messed that one up temporarily.

    The error was on Tampa Bay

    The line looked like this

    Tampa 0 0 1
    Oakland 4 12 0

    Arod needs to realize that he isn't above absolutely everyone. There are other good players and respect should be given even to new players.

    Re: Dallas Braden throws perfect game

    One of the more unlikely guys to toss a perfect game, especially considering who it came against.

    Re: Dallas Braden throws perfect game

    I benched him on my fantasy team today. He was struggling and the Rays have been killing it. I guess that is why I'm 11th out of 12 teams.


    I don't bring my own opinions, just attack others.

    Re: Dallas Braden throws perfect game

    I've liked Dallas Braden the last couple of years. Other than injuries he has been very consistent with a pretty low ERA. I remember last year he was giving up 1-2 runs per game like it was his job but the A's just weren't firing offensively and the guy couldn't get a win.

    However, with respect to his outburst with A-rod, I'd have to say Braden sounded like a huge loser. If you read some of his quotes he just sounds ridiculous. People can hate on A-rod all they want, but Braden is the one who came off sounding like a punk.


    Kinnick smells like syrup.
