Dallas Braden is Confident
Prior to throwing an incredibly memorable perfect game back in 2010, Dallas Braden was known as an average (at best) Major Leaguer. And since, well, it isn't like he's done any better. Through five big league seasons, dude is 26-36 with a 4.16 ERA.
But, back to that perfect game. It's that one achievement that makes the Oakland Athletics parting ways with the lefty newsworthy.
Thankfully, the 29-year-old is keeping everything in perspective.
The Michael Rappaport lookalike should be cleared to throw in late November...he hasn't pitched in a game since April 16, 2011.
