Dallas Braden leaves Yankees game early with cramps

Sep 2, 2010, 3:58 PM EDT

Well, at least this won’t give Yankees fans any reason to mock the brash young lad for his lack of manliness or toughness or whatnot:

Oakland Athletics pitcher Dallas Braden has left his latest start because of heat-related cramps. Braden
bent over after a pitch in the sixth inning Thursday at Yankee Stadium.
He was checked by a trainer and slowly walked off the field.

Guess he had to get off CC Sabathia’s mound.

A shame too, because it was a heck of a pitchers duel going on at the time, with the Yankees up 1-0.  The game just ended with the Yankees winning 5-0.  Braden did get in a plunking of Derek Jeter right before he cramped up, however, so he got some evil points in for the New York crowd.

    He got heat cramps because it doesn’t get hot in the 209

    Oh you know Braden got hoes in that area code.

    I think he’s been taking too many of Manny’s woman vitamins. I like that he plunked Jeter. How did he miss that giant melon?

    This just proves that not everybody can cut it in New York. Even the opposing team’s pitcher. You have to be made out of a special material to be New York material.

    Note… this is sarcasm, I’m just being the Yankee fans to the punch.

    Have you ever been to stockton?
    The 209’s kennels are full because they are all dogs

    It’s plenty hot in Stockton, it’s just hotter in Vallejo where CC’s from.

    Braden doesn’t have enough meat on his bones. It was 1,000,000,000000 degrees yesterday. CC didn’t cramp because CC weighs 350 pounds and his muscles are used to being taxed by carrying around his battleship-sized frame.
    But I’m not a doctor. I’m just sayin’.
