HE WISHES:

Dallas Braden throws perfect game for Oakland A's, grandma Peggy Lindsey tells A-Rod to 'stick it' (Peter Botte, 5/10/10, NY DAILY NEWS)

Peggy Lindsey had just watched A's lefthander Dallas Braden make baseball history, and after celebrating a perfect game by her grandson, she couldn't resist sending a Mother's Day message to his verbal sparring partner.

"Stick it, A-Rod," Lindsey said, minutes after a career-defining moment for Braden, who has been engaged in a war of words with the Yankee star since mid-April over unwritten rules about the pitcher's mound.

It was just three days ago that a video of Braden talking about a fight with A-Rod surfaced, to which the Yankee star responsed by saying he didn't "want to extend (Braden's) 15 minutes of fame." [...]

Lindsey, who raised Braden after his mother, Jodie Atwood, died of cancer when he was a high school senior, got in the "stick it" jab while speaking to reporters in Oakland following yesterday's game.
