Críticas:

"You might think everything that could have been said, replayed and revealed about that night has already been uttered, logged and exposed. You would, however, be as wrong as the unfortunate Mr. Joyce was when he decided that Cleveland shortstop Jason Donald had beaten first baseman Miguel Cabrera's toss to Galarraga on what would have been the Indians' 27th consecutive out." --Neal Rubin, The Detroit News "Nobody's Perfect achieves the remarkable feat of taking us inside the heads of both the pitcher and the umpire at the moment of that call, and during everything leading up to it. Baseball players and officials pride themselves on appearing unreadable on the field but, in alternating chapters, Galarraga and Joyce reveal in their own words, with surprising candor, what was going on behind their opaque game faces. ... A thrilling, emotionally complex revisit to the legendary almost-perfect game of June 2, 2010, complete with the satisfying back story of the careers (and psychologies) of the pitcher and the umpire who shared a first-base call that made history." --John McFarland, Shelf Awareness "Captivating ... [It reads] like a great summer novel." --Mark Newman, MLB.com "Inspiring." --Spitball Magazine "In the Big Events category, there was just one last year that had everyone talking: the perfect game spoiled by an ump's blown call on what would have been the final out. But the response of the ump, Jim Joyce, and the pitcher, Tigers pitcher Armando Galarraga, thrust them both in to a small category of sports that actually ennobles the human race . ... Joyce's abject admission of a mistake and Galarraga's grace in accepting a near-miss with destiny made character the big sinner, detailed in their collaboration, with Daniel Paisner, in Nobody's Perfect: Two Men, One Call, and a Game for Baseball History. " --Publishers Weekly, "PW's Top Ten Sports Books" for 2011 "A masterpiece."--Steve Kettman, The Huffington Post You might think everything that could have been said, replayed and revealed about that night has already been uttered, logged and exposed.

Reseña del editor:

The Detroit Tigers pitcher and veteran umpire share their respective views on the June 2, 2010 game that was entered into the record books with what the umpire believes was his erroneous call on the final out, tracing their career stories while imparting the significance of the game in their lives.
