While we were busy having our SB Nation Arizona
launch party meet-up, Armando Galarraga had a perfect game ripped from his hands on a blown call by umpire Jim Joyce.
Fortunately for us, Jared Dudley's Twitter was on the case:
BREAKING NEWS: Yo!!!!! Did u see that empire miss that CALL!!!!! The man had a perfect game!!!!! THAT'S TERRIBLE..What should happen to him?
Unfortunately for us, Jared is about to blow this Popsicle stand and head to cooler climes and sunny beaches:
Last day in PHX for awhile.. Headin to SAN DIEGO!!!!! Goin back home for the weekend..what's goin on out there?
Personally, I think that "empire" should be shit-canned. I know he was all <tears> "I am so sorry, I messed up" <more tears> but come on, how do you blow that call? If you aren't sure, you give the kid the damn call and don't blow his perfect game!!
As slow (and boring) as baseball can be, it is time for an instant replay challenge system. Put the onus on the manager to ask for a replay 2 or 3 times per game.
Oh and Bud Selig, you need to grow a pair and overturn that call and give the kid his perfect game.
In other Jared Dudley Twitter news, JD live tweeted his wisdom teeth extraction:
I never knew it cost a lot of money to get ur wisdom teeth out.. 1500!!! Man.. I thought the NBA had a good medical plan lol
Yes, Jared. People have to spend their own money to take care of their health and teeth and btw, dude, not everyone is going to make $1.3 million this year and $2.2 million next year. Fork out over the scratch and get some good drugs while you're at it.
OMG!! I can't feel my face.. And when talk I druel.., I know I'm goin to need some meds.. I was knocked out the whole time.. When I woke up I couldn't stand up by myself lol.. So far no pain just swealing in the face.. I'm bout to be on these meds and ice..
