For those of us looking for an excuse to get this foiled perfect game story on First Read, here's how it relates to politics...
Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) released a statement, "urging Major League Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig to invoke the 'Best Interests of the Game' clause to declare Armando Galarraga's performance perfect:
"Last night's performance deserves its place in the record books. It is clear that Commissioner Selig should make an exception in this case and invoke the 'best interests of the game clause' to grant a perfect game to Armando Galarraga and the Detroit Tigers organization."
(Thanks to the Morning Joe team for the inspiration for this headline.)
*** UPDATE *** AP: "Commissioner Bud Selig will not reverse call that cost Armando Galarraga a perfect game."
