“Nobody’s Perfect!”

“Nobody’s perfect!” – Detroit Tigers’ pitcher Armando Galarraga commenting on umpire Jim Joyce’s wrong call which cost Galaragga a perfect game yesterday.

From The New York Times:

“I just cost that kid a perfect game,” Joyce told reporters in Detroit. “I thought he beat the throw. I was convinced he beat the throw, until I saw the replay. It was the biggest call of my career.”

Galarraga told reporters that Joyce apologized to him after the game, adding that he had no instinct to argue the call. “He probably felt more bad than me,” Galarraga said. Smiling, he added, “Nobody’s perfect.”
