Some news and notes in the aftermath of the Armando-Galarraga-perfect-game-that-wasn’t-due-to-Jim-Joyce-blown-call-heard-round-the-world.
- Fox Sports has the post game reaction videos. I believe collectively the team is dripping with class
- Jim Leyland is asking Detroit fans to exhibit the behavior modeled by Galarraga. Come on Tigers fans. Don’t let me down.
- Armando Galarraga is taking out the lineup card to home plate umpire Jim Joyce today. Some may view this as a stunt. I just view it as remarkable. Happy to be sappy about it.
- MLB is considering reviewing the call. What this really means is they are considering overturning the call, or at least they haven’t ruled it out. There isn’t anything to review.
- Jim Joyce had the option to not work today’s game but is going to “take what I’ve got coming”
- Matt Sussman on the Zen of Armando Galarraga
- Kevin Kaduk of Big League Stew on the whole affair.
- And finally, Joe Posnanski. Because in times of baseball strife it’s who we turn to to feel better.
