Hesitant at first to get pulled into yet another tit-for-tat with A’s pitcher Dallas Braden, Alex Rodriguez passed on making comments about his perfect game as he entered Fenway Park this afternoon. But after getting settled in, he did offer a reaction to the talkative Mr Braden’s efforts this afternoon. Here’s his quote:
“I’ve learned in my career, it is much better to be recognized for all the great things you do on the field,” Rodriguez said. “Good for him, he threw a perfect game. And better yet, he beat the Rays.”
A perfect reaction to the perfect game by Alex. For a guy who spent his first few seasons as a Yankee putting his foot in his mouth, that was very well played. And congratulations go out from me to Mr Braden for ‘extending his 15 minutes of fame’ the right way.
