    Not saying that Selig couldn't have overturned the ruling without much problem down the road, but I don't think the difference made is huge.
    It'll be remembered more in the short run, but not in the long run. If that makes sense. It'll be talked about more now and maybe for the next 5-10 years, but in the distant future when people look at perfect games they'll see Braden and Halladay in the record book while Galarraga will be missing.

    • To play devil's advocate has anyone really gone into a book to see who threw a perfect game anyway?

      • It will be talked about for a long time, but for all the wrong reasons.

        This was the most improbable perfect game that I'm aware of. Armando Galaragga was in the minor leagues 2.5 weeks ago. He's a relative nobody compared even to Dallas Braden, who was put on the map thanks to his perfecto.

        • Len Barker, Mike Witt, and Tom Browning are all such big names in baseball circles.

          • I'd say Braden was put on the map for yelling at Alex Rodriguez before he was put on the map for the perfect game.

              I'm going to remind people of Armando's perfection for the rest of my life, just to keep it alive.

              Errr, I mean until Tuesday when Armando throws a perfect game against Chicago.

                I did the day after Halladay just to see who has and that this is only the second time 2 perfects have been thrown in one season(last was in 1880's) and that it is now the first season ever in major league history to have 3 perfectos.

                    Agreed. Who would object to this if it were clearly spelled out?

                    You could add some of the other historic gaffes as well. Not team achievements, but stuff like this. Sure there were blown calls that altered the course of playoff series' but no single call determined the ultimate outcome.

                      NEVER FORGET, JUNE 2nd, ARMANDO GALARRAGA PERFECT GAME! 28 UP, 28 DOWN!
                      There's living scared, and then there's doing the right thing. Selig chose the former. Maybe Selig won't make the change, but the Hall of Fame can still recognize greatness. Mark it in the record books, perfect game.

                      • Armando for the Hall of Fame.

                        DO IT.

                        His legend grows.

                        • WOO Leo strikes out Hart to finish the game. JJ improves to 6-2, 2.10 ERA on the season.

                          That is correct comahan

                          • enough about armando ******* gallaraga, jesus.

                            if the umpire doesn't mess that call up, 21 people have thrown a perfect game, and in two weeks nobody gives a ****. as it stands, he did, it won't be changed, so 20 people have officially thrown a perfect game, and in two weeks i'm guessing there still won't be anyone who really gives a ****.

                            i'm sure i'll get an enormous amount of flack for this, but this **** spans the past ten plus pages
