reported at Zennie62.com, after making them wait, Texas Rangers Team President and Pitching Legend Nolan Ryan came on The Dan Patrick Show this morning and deadpanned that he thinks the team, currently being clobbered 26 to 9 by the San Francisco Giants, can "win three in a row."
Was Nolan Ryan sending a message to his organization? Certainly. Was he trying to dis the San Francisco Giants? Not at all. Ryan praised the Giants performance, saying they are "by far" playing the best baseball, but Nolan did say he didn't expect the offensive performance he's seen from the Giants thus far.

Braden led the A's to a 4-0 win against the Tampa Bay Devil Rays in Oakland on Mother's Day.
Now lost in all the celebration is what a "perfect game" in baseball is. It's not a "no-hitter"; it's beyond that. It's a game where no player from the opposing team gains a hit or gets on base in any way, even by a walk or a hit batter.
Nothing. Nada. Zip.
Here's the video:
That's what Dallas Braden did today. Braden's the first Oakland A's pitcher to throw a perfect game in 42 years. That's incredible.
Much has been made of Braden's feud with The New York Yankees' Alex Rodriquez, who's behavior has been rather salty since he was dumped by Kate Hudson after she learned A-Rod was allegedly cheating on her.
When the Oakland A's last played the New York Yankees, A-Rod crossed the mound that was manned by Dallas Braden. Braden took offense to the action and said that A-Rod did not understand baseball etiquette and their "would be repercussions" if he did it again, as this video shows:
The Yankees and A's face again July 5th, 6th, and 7th, in Oakland. Oaklander's, let's make those games sellouts!
