Your Move, A-Rod...

Baseball's most one-sided feud just got a hell of a lot more interesting today as Oakland Ace Dallas Braden tossed a perfect game against the powerhouse Rays. Braden, whom A-Rod claimed lacked credibility, is now oozing with it. A perfect game is one of baseball's rarest and greatest feats and having now tossed one, Dallas Braden joins the sport's most elite club.

In fact, a perfect game has only been achieved 17 times in the modern era. That's right, in 110 years and untold tens of thousands of games perfection has been attained a mere 17 times!!! Now, Mr. Perfect himself Alex Rodriguez is going to have to deal with some real perfection straight out of the 209.
A-Rod, to his credit, took the high road when asked about Braden's perfect game. Rodriguez said, " I've learned in my career, it is much better to be recognized for all the great things you
do on the field. Good for him, he threw a perfect game. And better yet, he beat the Rays." I think HBO should do a 24/7 about the upcoming Yanks/A's July 5-7th series. It sure as hell has gotten a lot more intriguing. Your move, A-Rod.....
