Armando Galarraga may have been robbed blind of a perfect game Wednesday evening, but General Motors has helped him heal the pain.
The company decided that the Detroit Tigers righty's 28-out perfecto was impressive enough, and presented him with a spankin' new 2010 red Chevy Corvette convertible on Thursday. That's a pretty badass consolation prize. What the hell kind of car would he have gotten if he really had pitched a perfect game?
Also, Galarraga officially won't have to buy his teammates gifts of appreciation, since Commissioner Bud Selig has decided to let the pure element of human error stand. Maybe he can take them all for a spin instead.
