I'll Tell You Who Dallas Braden Is


Dallas Braden pitched the 19th perfect game in major league history, shutting down the majors’ hottest team and leading the Oakland Athletics to a 4-0 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Sunday.
Braden threw his arms in the air after Gabe Kapler grounded out to shortstop for the final out. The closest the Rays got to a hit was Jason Bartlett’s liner to third leading off the game. Evan Longoria tried to bunt against Braden leading off the fifth, drawing boos from the small crowd.
“It’s without a doubt a team effort,” Braden said. “You got eight guys out there chasing balls and knocking balls down for me. So this is ours, not just mine, this is ours.”
Dallas Braden pitched a perfect game against the best team in baseball, as of today. He went up against a team that has been playing .750 baseball. 
Mr. A-Rod, if you walk on that pitcher's mound again, I hope he drills you in the ass and I hope everyone in the stadium laughs.
