Should Chevy Give Galaraga a Camaro?... Perfect Car for Perfect Game.

We all know that Armondo Galaraga DID get a perfect game however he will unfortunately be left off the short list of pitchers who have gotten perfect games. It will affect him financially through out his career and is just flat out sad and disappointing. Do you think since Chevy has made the PERFECT CAR in the Camaro that they should make a great gesture and PR move to give him a free Camaro to show appreciation for his amazing accomplishment and grace in handling the mistaken call?

I think they should. That is some priceless advertising also. What's your take?

I saw this last night and being an avid baseball fan, I was stunned. Although the runner was clearly out, giving Galaragga a perfect game, I am impressed at the actions of first base umpire Jim Joyce and Tigers manager Jim Leyland. Jim Joyce was visibly shaken up after the game and immediately apologized. Leyland on the other hand showed enormous poise in standing up for Joyce, standing by him, reminding the media and the fans that umpires are human and make mistakes, no matter how large they are.

So after all that, there's no point in giving Galaragga a Camaro. He pitched a one-hitter, not win the World Series MVP. Why give him a Camaro? It doesn't make sense.

And how the heck will it affect him financially? The guy probably makes enough money to buy a **** ZR1.

Believe me... through endorsements, his next contract with his next team, his jersey sales, post career autograph sales and all the extraneaous other things that come along with the hoopla of pitching a perfect game. It will COST him money. And he didn't pitch a 1 hitter. He threw a perfect game tainted by a bad call. This is like the same as OJ killing his ex and Ron... We all know he did it... it just isn't in the books. I think he deserves to be recognized for it just like Halloday and Brayden have been this year... and for more than just his grace in handling the situation. Homeboy did something that has only happened 20 times in over 100 years of baseball. Recognize him Chevy... it would be such a smooth play. The car sales that would come from that would be incredible.

Thats my take.

OVERRATED????? Come on dude. 20 perfect games in over 100 years? Overrated? Please. Its rare and hard to do. He deserves the reward and praise. If you don't care about baseball then I can see why you'd think it was overrated... but trust me... its not.
