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

    This just shows what can happen when people stay off his mound. turns out he knew what he was talking about.

    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.
