FLIPPING out at work right now. Got the girl next to me at the desk to watch it on MLB.com. That was AMAZING. I'll never forget how I missed Buehrle's due to class, but I'm so happy I got to see the final 3 outs of this one.

Wow... Amazing.

Had to follow most of the game on Gamecast, but Fox obviously cut in for the 9th so I got to see the end and the dogpile. Every Sox game should include a dogpile I say.

Gee... I wonder who the PTC is...

Congratulations, Mr. Humber. Your table is ready...

No, that was Castro who caught Buerhle's perfecto. I remember reading it was Castro's first game as a catcher with the Sox and he went up to Buerhle in the bullpen and said "So, what do you throw?"

Aaaaand now we go back to the Yankees and Red Sox. A perfect game gets five minutes of coverage, but enough about something that has only happened 21 times in MLB history, LET'S SEE SOME YANKS AND SAWKS! :angry::angry:

I'd be interested to see a side view of the last swing, definitely looks like he got his hands way out over the plate though. I think it's the right call.

After he went crybaby on the home plate ump, there was no way he was getting an appeal from the 1st base ump. No way, no how in that moment.

I was wondering if maybe the ump wanted no repeat of the media storm that followed James Joyce and figured if Ryan beat out the throw so be it, but he wasn't going to call it ball four and have that heat come down on him.

Brian Runge is an awful umpire, but he has shown in the past that he will stretch his strike zone for no-hitters. He probably calls that pitch a strike whether there was a swing or not. And replay showed he did not check his swing.

I don't mind that though, especially for a perfect game. Go up there trying to get a hit, not a walk. Of course, had Ryan recognized the pitch and not swung at it at all it would have been a walk, no question.

As far as I was concerned, that was a strike all the way. The hitter was arguing when he should have been running. He was fooled by the pitch and it was no time for him to split hairs with the ump. Eric Wedge thought his player didn't go but he's wrong. The strike out was just another indication of how good Humber was today.

The perfect game has us all excited, but the Sox needed to get back on track after the horrible Baltimore series. We will see if this team is better than we thought.

Humber's perfect game is the earliest in the calendar among the 21 perfect games in MLB history, and only the second ever thrown in April (the other was Charlie Robertson's perfect game on April 30, 1922 for the Sox at Detroit).

Fourth perfect game involving the White Sox in history (the Sox were the victims of Addie Joss's perfect game for Cleveland on October 2, 1908).

I had the radio on during the eighth and ninth (first time I've ever chosen to listen to those two over someone else), and it was kind of weak. Due to the confusion over the check swing/dropped third it was a little hesitant.

One of the ESPN announcers told a story regarding Humber and how he came to the White Sox.
Humber was pitching for the Royals in 2010, he made one start and it was against the SOX. He got the loss, didn't pitch that great. What came away from the was Konerko and Pierzynski telling the White Sox organization, that "we think this is the guy that can pitch."
The Sox picked him up on a flyer last off season, made the team out of spring training. Had a solid season for them a year ago. Gets established into the rotation and now today happens.


Zakath added this:


That game was August 21, 2010 where Humber threw 5 2/3 and gave up 5 runs on 9 hits with no walks and 6 K's. He actually didn't get the loss in that game; the Royals came back and won 6-5 in 11 innings. It was Humber's second career start; the first was September 26, 2007 for the Mets against the Nationals.

Would have been cool to watch at least the last few innings with him as he probably would have gotten caught up in the excitement. Oh well, I did watch MB's gem with my Dad - a cherished memory.

Three seasons ago, I showed my girlfriend, who is fairly new to baseball, highlights of the Dewayne Wise catch and the Mark Buehrle's last out in his perfect game and explained that this was a huge deal. Then there were a couple more perfect games and another game that wasn't a perfect game because of a bad call. I'm not sure she will continue to appreciate how special a perfect game is.

I am so happy for Phil Humber. The only relevant question after this game (I only actually saw the last three outs, so I can't really say) is how far behind Kerry Wood's 20-strikeout game this ranks in the greatness scale in Chicago baseball.

Still, I have watched Humber's last strike at least a dozen times, and I still don't believe Brendan Ryan swung at that pitch. Not that it matters. Not that it cheapens Humber's domiance this afternoon. Certainly it doesn't demand a footnote. But it looks like Humber thought Ryan checked his swing. Some will consider this a makeup call for the Armando Galarraga missed perfect game, no doubt.

But in Chicago, there is probably a baseball writer who is interviewing or trying to reach Milt Pappas as I right this. In September 1972, Pappas looked like he had had Larry Stahl struck out, but Bruce Froemming sent Stahl to first with a walk after Pappas had retired the first 26 Padres. I can only imagine what it might have been like to have watched today's ninth inning with Milt Pappas.

Fun fact, of the 21 perfect games in MLB history, Humber's had 2nd fewest starts in his career at 30. The only guy who had fewer? The White Sox's Charlie Robertson (who was on start #5, a record I doubt will ever be topped).

Shoot, after witnessing what has gone down the last several years regarding Perfect Games, I'm not doubting anything at this point. :o:

Incredible. Two Sox perfectos in just under three years. Simply amazing.

If you guys are going to be at the game tomorrow, come find me in the 'Pen. I'll be in the corner of the lower level next to the M's bullpen. would love to meet some people from this board.

We'll be there and I'm sure we'll be out in The Pen as well (depending on how the rest of the night goes, who knows how early).

Here's the final pitch from my view:

It got scary in the 9th when Humber got to a 3-0 count on Saunders.I literally said to my television, "Please,Phil,don't lose it this way. Let 'em hit their way on".:redface: What a finish! I just hope Humber's shoulder and arm aren't hurt after the mobbing at the mound. Nice touch by Alexei to dump a Gatorade bucket of water on Humber during the interview.:D:

Unreal. Just un-****ing-real. Thank you, Philip Humber,the pitcher drafted 3rd overall by the Mets in the 2004 draft.
The pitcher who went before him? The Tiggers took Verlander.:o:

Dave Sims.

it was supposed to be Kenny Albert, but he had to call NY Rangers on the radio, so they called in Sims, who's actually the Mariners regular PBP guy. Though, he has a national profile because he does SNF on the radio.

4 1/2 months old, you say...I heard Rongey saying that she was due May 8. So, at about 5 1/2 months old, the youngster will be on the field when Humber throws a CG shutout to win Game 4 of the World Series in a White Sox sweep of the Nationals.

He's been a very welcome addition to the Sox rotation! He's always had the talent, just taken overcoming some obstacles to get where he is today.

Only making $530K this year after $500K last year. That will surely go up in the offseason.

I was at a cabin in Wisconsin with no TV when Buehrle threw his perfecto. Never thought I'd see another from my favorite team.

That's funny; I was watching "The Cabin in the Woods." When I got out of the theater, I got on my phone to see the score. Boy was I shocked when I saw that Humber had thrown a perfect game. Congrats Phil! :gulp:


How do you no-hit Ichiro Suzuki, let alone throw a perfect game?

Buehrle once pitched a 3-hit shutout against the Mariners. Ichiro had all 3 of Seattle's hits.

I'd be interested to see a side view of the last swing, definitely looks like he got his hands way out over the plate though. I think it's the right call.

At around 2:03 of this MLB video (http://mlb.mlb.com/video/play.jsp?content_id=20811237&c_id=cws), the side view shows the bat crossed the plate and the batter offered at the pitch.

The Fans At The Center Of The Baseball Universe were bitching about them cutting into the Yanks/Sawx game...after all, it was only 9-1 when they cut to Humber. DON'T WANNA MISS THAT!!!!!

I recorded the game on DVR because I was gone all afternoon (big props to my wife who knew what had happened from text alerts and emails on her phone but didn't tell me), so I just found out about this an hour ago when I watched the game.

I always extend the record time an extra hour in case the game goes long, so I also watched that Red Sox/Yankees debacle after the Sox game. Although I don't care for either team, I have to admit that watching Bobby Valentine get booed off the field after the Yankees put up 14 unanswered runs in two inning was pretty entertaining.

04-21-2012, 11:35 PM
looking at the pitch trax, pitch 7 was way off the plate. pitch 5 was closer and still called a ball so I doubt that runge would have called it a strike if he didn't swing.

That last pitch was WAY out of the zone and would have been ball four.

The Fox announcers were fine. It was actually refreshing that they focused on Humber in the dugout beginning as early as the 4th inning and talked about what was happening, in lieu of that outdated idea that they would be jinxing the perfect game by talking about it.

Congrats to Philip Humber on the PERFECT GAME. I was at the game, as you guys know, as a Mariner fan. I won't lie, I was hoping that the M's would at least get a hit or something, but the baseball fan in was amazed to see a perfect game in person. It was a beautiful day at the ball park and very excited that I got to witness history being made. I was only able to get a couple of pics at the end of the game.

Considering Humber ran out of gas by July last season I have no problem trying to save a few innings on his arm in April. Beside, the Sox are still counting on him to start 30 games this year; just because he happened to fit in things after Sale doesn't necessarily mean the Sox feel he is the least effective starter on the roster.

....and the Sox are the only team with 3 regular season perfect games. One of the Yankees' perfect games was Don Larsen's World Series game in '56. By the way, the other two NY perfect games were a year apart from each other in '98 and '99.

I agree with both of you. The FOX announcers started talking about Humber not allowing any hits in the fourth inning, continually referencing his position on the bench in the dugout and the fact that nobody was sitting near or talking to him. However, part of me can't help but wonder how Hawk would have called this one. Without a doubt, Stone would've had to have the AED on stand-by for his broadcast partner.

As for Humber's accomplishment, I can't get enough of the web clips or stories I've seen on tonight's sports segments. I'm really happy for him and was super nervous in that ninth inning, especially since he opened the inning by going 3-0 on Seattle's lead-off hitter. Philip seems like a humble guy who's genuinely grateful for what happened earlier today. He's a journeyman who really appreciates the long road he has taken to get to this point.

With all that said, hopefully the Sox continue winning and don't tank their season like they did after Buehrle's no-hitter and perfecto. It would be most preferred for them to win tomorrow. Besides, I think I'm the only winless writer on the TBGR staff so far this season!

Okay, I was alive in 59 but only five so can't claim I really remember it. Not sure if that counts.
It's actually pretty amazing that there have been two perfect games and one no-hitter in the past five-plus years.

Awesome thing to watch, just amazing, it is games/moments like this that make being a sports fan special.......congrats Phil, thanks for adding another incredible Sox memory to my mental scrapbook
