Just in case you missed it…here’s the scoop on Galarraga’s Perfect Game.
Ugh. I still can’t believe it. “Robbed” doesn’t even begin to describe this. Two things worth noting:
First, Armando is so gracious. He must be feeling a whole lot of things, but he is gracious to Jim Joyce.
Second, to Joyce’s credit, he apologized to Galarraga. I imagine even Galarraga doesn’t feel worse than Joyce tonight!
But…in the end, a bad call is just that–a bad call. We know that Galarraga threw a Perfect Game tonight, and Detroit fans (and many others, I’m sure) will remember it. No one can rob him of his performance tonight.
Great job, Galarraga! You’re my Tiger!
