Dallas Braden is a badass. Dude always does things his own way, and things are starting to come together for him with a 3-0 record to start the season. The latest win came yesterday, at the Yankees' expense, but that wasn't the best part, oh no. The best part was when Braden called out the purple-lipped cheater, Alex Rodriguez, for taking a shortcut on the way back to first base after a foul ball. It was a shortcut that took him right over the pitcher's mound. And that's a no-no, in Braden's eyes.
I wonder if there's any post-screaming spike in the price of Braden's cards. It seems like any time a player is in the news for any reason, people like to hike up their Buy it Now prices.
P.S. I don't have any '09 Updates and Highlights in my collection (yet) so I had to borrow this image from the always entertaining Cards on Cards site. Check it out - especially on Airbrushed Fridays. Thanks Madding!
