Here is the story everyone is going to go with: He hugged his grandmother afterward. The bigger story: The on-field mics picked up Braden telling her afterward, "Let's go eat!" He also called his uniform a "costume" in the postgame interview.
Congratulations, Dallas! Per the collective bargaining agreement, he now gets to kick A-Rod in the balls.
Update, 7:30 p.m.: Both A-Rod and Dallas Braden's grandmother have weighed in! A-Rod says, "No more about him, please." (He also said "good for him," but that won't get any attention.)
Braden's grandmom says, "Stick it, A-Rod."
