Opinion: Joyce, Galarraga deserve respect for their actions
There's only one person in the world I respect more than 23-year veteran Major League Baseball umpire Jim Joyce right now.
And that's Detroit Tigers pitcher Armando Galarraga.
The right-hander should be listed as the 21st pitcher in the history of the major leagues to ever have thrown a perfect game.
With one wrong call, Joyce negated history.
