Dallas Braden's Letterman Top Ten List

May 12, 2010, 9:28 AM EDT

A couple of chuckles during Dallas Braden’s appearance on Letterman last night — I think No. 8 is my favorite — but really, we’ve seen better with athletes (UPDATE: Sorry! Forgot to say what the Top 10 List actually was. It was the top 10 thoughts Dallas Braden had during his perfect 4-0 game against the

No. 10: Grandma’s right. Stick it, A-Rod.

No. 9: I did it! Oh crap, it’s only the 4th inning.

No. 8: Seriously, how cool a name is Dallas Braden?

No. 7: Now maybe Justin Bieber will notice me.

No. 6: I must not tell the world I’m Iron Man.

No. 5: This is something they can never take away from me. But
for $50,000, you can have my glove.

No. 4: This next pitch, eyes closed.

No. 3: Even I’ve never heard of me.

No. 2: I should at least give up one hit so I don’t have to do

No. 1: Maybe I can give Kate Hudson a call.

    #3 is the only one I really got a chuckle out of.

    Pretty much the same, were the rest supposed to be funny?

    If I knew I was going to do this, I would have left Mr. Rodriguez alone.

    I think Dallas is tasting himself a little too much.

    Top 10 what? You didn’t say…

    The A’s/Texas game last night, a fabulous game actually, was a Braden love-fest by the A’s announcers. Not that you’d expect anything else. Ray Fosse, always a pleasure, said something to the effect that at least the next time Braden pitches at home the A’s can expect a crowd over 10,000.
    Now that’s setting your sights high!

    Well if having one of your pitchers (and probably the ace of your staff) pitch a perfect game still can’t increase ticket sales, I don’t know what else can. Not to mention the A’s are in first place.
    I’m tired of all these Oakland fans whining about the team moving to San Jose. Really? Does an extra 25-30 minutes of driving really make that big of a difference? Not to mention that it’s 100x better than moving the team to Portland or Vegas. This team needs a new stadium and if Oakland can’t provide that, then move on to San Jose and get more fans.

    Notice that there is no mention of A-Rod by Braden in the top 10. Why? Because you can be sure MLB made a telephone call to him and his manager to cut the crap.

    See # 10.
