Around MLB May 10, 2010May 10, 2010
As I continue to try and find my way in blogging, I want to try different things and see if it works. One idea I have is to provide a weekly blog post of some top stories from around Major League Baseball. This is my first shot at it, so your feedback/thoughts are important. Let me know what you think.
Oakland A’s pitcher Dallas Braden pitched a perfect game on Mother’s Day. For video highlights go here.

As most of you know by now, Mets announcer Keith Hernandez decided to take a nap during the game over the weekend. Video courtesy of MSNBC is below.
