Was wondering what you think is the better pitching performance. Striking out 20 hitters in a game or pitching a perfect game.

This really needs a poll?

Perfection is rare.

I went with the perfect game.

Why does it even matter? They're both great accomplishments in their own right.

I do love how some in the media (Ofman, asswipe Bernstein) had to piss on the parade by babbling about how Wood's game was "more impressive." Even that chicagonow blog run by *bleep* got into the act with their poll. Now just think about that. Sox fans are constantly ridiculed for being "obsessed" with the Cubs, yet not one White Sox accomplishment can go by without some media members referencing the Cubs. Who's obsessed? And the Wood game happened 11 years ago. Stop living in the past and move on with your life.

One more thing. If a Sox fan had called Boers and Bernstein in the afterglow of Zambrano's no-hitter and said that Buehrle's no-hitter from the year before was "more impressive" because he faced fewer batters than Zambrano, what would the reaction of Mr. Bernstein have been? He is, after all, much smarter than all of us Neanderthal knuckleheads, right?
