I also am officially a fan of Miguel Cabrera for how he was jawing with the umpire after the call, thats a true teammate, I was really hoping he would get thrown out so it would start a big thing.
This could have been #21 in baseball history, instead it was just a very good game. Its sad that this could have carried Gallaraga's career and now its just a good game, I really do feel sorry for him.
I was pretty much coming to post this word-for-word. Galarraga deserves a legacy and I sincerely hope he gets some sort of memorabilia into Cooperstown (like the other perfect games have).
