Nice to see Buehrle get so much love from ESPN. A good chunk of tonight's show was dedicated to him, of course. I didn't watch the whole thing, but I trust Wise got the web gem...right?!

I love that the 500th post in the thread was about Neutral Milk Hotel. To answer the question, there is not a new album out. I wish.

I wonder if they'll send a picture to the season ticket holders like they did for his first no-hitter? Just makes me want to be a season ticket holder even more.

Someone mentioned in the first thread that their favorite part was Wise looking shocked when he made the catch. It was adorable. Kudos to him.

NMH went crazy after hearing everyone tell him how much his music meant to them. He ended up trying to record every sound ever, or something.

Although I think he played not that long ago somewhere, or made an appearance or something. Vague.

Jeff Mangum played "Engine" at the Elephant 6 Holiday Tour stop at the Bottom Lounge last fall.

Folks have mentioned Buehrle's interview with MLB Network (empty stadium, in street clothes, etc.). Has this been posted online anywhere?

Hawk really did nail it with his calls late in the game, didn't he? I know that he can be polarizing at times, but I couldn't imagine anybody doing it better:

You can see Buehrle trying to hold the laughter in after hearing Hawk's call.

I loved it when they showed the Sox dugout after that last out, jumping over the railing and whooping for joy. Love player reaction shots. The Rays dugout was pretty depressing to see. OH WELL!

The Wise interview with MLB Network is great, too.

Wise has pissed me off to no end this season, but he certainly comes off as a pretty decent dude who's playing hard.

As many people have said, Wise has earned himself a free pass for the rest of the season.

I'm glad he got to be a part of the history today.

They looked at the amount of runs the team who lost the perfect game had scored in comparison with the rest of the league. Tampa's league ranking in runs scored was higher than any other loser in perfect games.

Does anybody recall what you were thinking when that ball came off the bat of Kapler in the 9th. My reactions went from:

Initial Contact: Where's this gonna land?

to

Mid-Flight: Oh crap, this could be anything from a double to a HR

to

Descent: This may go over...

to

Initial catch: Is that a white blur in the mitt of the motion of a man who has just collided with a wall? And if so will he hang on to it?

to

Wise's tumble: He held on to it! He held on to it!

to

Hawk's call: Hawk must have realized his reaction should have been louder, so he decided to cut of Steve Stone mid-sentence.




I love this game.

Honestly, when you watch Wise's catch in slow motion, it looks like he is showboating, but in real time it's obvious that it slips out of his glove. He was looking to see if he caught it and, in doing so, the ball slipped out.

The ump that was closest to it said that if he would have dropped it he would have called the runner safe, how long does the ball have to be in the glove?

Really, this is the stuff of movies. A struggling player, eager to prove himself, ends up salvaging the perfect game. Another struggling player hits a grand slam to back up his pitcher. And a pitcher and catcher who hadn't worked together much (at all?) end up working together to get the perfect game.

I'd go see this movie.

Yea, I know they are. I bought my Konerko authentic for over $300. Add the two patches that are on the sleeves (WS and WS Champs), and that thing in total cost me about $350!

I've heard those don't fit quite right. Ms. Doub wanted a Sox jersey and we ended up settling on getting her a Male Youth Large. It fits her well and actually looks like a baseball jersey.

It's kinda been made already. If you haven't seen it, watch "For the Love of the Game". Kevin Costner plays a pitcher approaching retirement, and he flirts with a perfect game. An outfielder makes an HR robbing catch. The movie isn't exaclty as things played out yesterday though, so maybe a remake can be made using MB. :tongue:

This is really cool - I just got back from our local Dairy Queen. One of Ben Zobrist's first cousins was there, along with the husband of another first cousin. I'm decked out in my Sox gear today (they already know I'm a Sox fan,) and I went up to talk to them. They got all animated right away saying what a great game, what a great accomplishment, etc. They're lifelong Cards fans, but of course now, they're more about the Rays. They said as the game progressed they knew the Rays weren't going to win, and they were totally cheering for Buehrle. They went on to say what a rare thing it was because he also has a no-hitter and a World Series save and how he was up there with the best of 'em. Just a fun little encounter. :smile:
