Galarraga is perfect in our book

Updated: June 14, 2010, 4:54 PM ET

Ray Allen broke a NBA Finals record, Rafael Nadal won the French Open and Ubaldo Jimenez banked his 11th win. But none of it was good enough to grab No. 1 this week in the "Cross-Sport Power Rankings."

This week's No. 1 spot was reserved for the man that was one correct call away from being the 21st member of the perfect game club. That's right, for the man who single-handedly ignited a plea for instant replay and made umpire Jim Joyce a trending topic on Twitter. For the man that smiled despite having his name unfairly omitted from the history books. Like Dallas Braden and Roy Halladay before him, the ever-classy Armando Galarraga is this week's No. 1 for throwing the first unofficial 28-out perfect game. And for that decision from the panel, there was no instant replay necessary.

All-Star ESPN panel: John Buccigross, Josh Elliott, Robert Flores, DJ Gallo, Jemele Hill, Dana Jacobson, Brian Kenny, Jeff MacGregor, Bram Weinstein and Trey Wingo.
