An outing like that will put the league on notice. This team is not going to lay down. Cheers, Freddy.

I almost forgot. I jinxed it. When he got two down in the 8'th, I grabbed the phone. I told myself, "If he gets out of this inning, I'm calling everyone and letting them know about this." You know the rest...dammit.

I have been pulling to dump Freddy next season for prospects and salary relief. But when he pitches like he did today, reminds me of game 4 of the World Series ....... The "Big Game" Freddy title you can't take away from him.


WOW!!!


5 straight quality starts by all of our starters .... could be the first time this year and maybe the sign we all have been suffering in looking for. These 5 guys get hot and stay hot...... LOOK OUT.

Just when I think I'm out they pull me back in! We'll, I suppose I'm going to officially take the position that another fine poster on WSI did last year when it looked like the Sox were going to cough-up the division. If the Sox don't make the playoffs, "I'm going down with the ship."

Seriously, it would be really, really, really helpful if the Tigers would stop making severe death rattles and just keel over dead. Let's hope that happens! It's also nice to know we probably wouldn't have to face Santana AND Liriano during that last series with the Twins. All in all, things are looking much better today than they did yesterday.

Oh, GREAT JOB FREDDY!!!

Freddys stuff was just moving all over but he had total command like a guy that almost threw a perfect game should. Kennedy got the 3-2 count and Freddy did not want to walk him so he gave him a hittable pitch. Cant blame him, who wants a walk in that situation.

I thought Hawk was going to have a heart attack in the booth on the Iguchi gaffe. I thought maybe Iguchi was sick and disoriented suddenly. It is baffling.

I hope ozzie has a short but direct meeting with one message- run hard all the time and listen to your basecoaches.

Despite last nights loss, it was refreshing to see the Sox play better baseball. There were some bad moments but they didn't appear lifeless like we've seen against inferior team.

If they win 4 of 6 this week will be a great acomplishment. The Angels have excellent pitching and their bullpen is very tough. A sweep would've been great but most teams are not going to do that.

I just hope tomorrow the Sox prove to Loaiza just why they traded him.

The Sox are doing some quality starting pitching. It would be a shame if opposing teams didn't get to face it in Oct.

I did it to him last year too in the infamous Jacque Jones solo homer game.

Lost in the perfect game scenario is that Fields made a perfect debut in left field. Okay, he did not have any chances, as Sweeney caught all three outs in right in the ninth, but, hey, it's a sign of things to come.

And, by the way, I jinxed it. A friend called me to tell me he had a perfect game and I rushed home from work to watch. I turned on the game and Kennedy was up with a 2-1 count in the eighth. Oh well.

I jinxed him. I didn't realize he had a perfect game going into the 8th and as soon as I became aware of it - that was the end.

Next time do us all a favor and don't become aware of it ok?

Just keep winning these series boys. The rest will take care of itself.

Didn't get to see it, but:

:worship::garcia:

I know I for one owe this guy an apology. Is it too late to change my vote for who I would want to pitch in a 1-game playoff? :redneck

Way to go Freddy. Thank you.

Looks like the starters are all returning to form. If the bullpen can just keep it together, the team could be peaking at just the right time.

If that isn't a spark, I want to see what one looks like, because that was phenomenal.

It's my fault. I put my tape in the VCR in the 8th inning. The whammy was put on poor Freddy, he didn't even know what hit him. I did it to him last year too in the infamous Jacque Jones solo homer game. I swear, next time one of our pitchers flirts with perfection or a no-hitter, I'll write the station to get a copy of it somehow and won't put a damn tape in the VCR.:cool:

sounds like you need to invest in Tivo....
i didnt get to watch the game due to class and other stuff so...what kind of velocity was freddy hitting with his fastball...and was he using his breaking ball? just want to know if he looked different or if the halos just couldnt figure him out....

My observations:

A great game by Freddy and a string of good starts by the starters.

It was nice to see the White Sox score without the long ball and nine runs at that.

I only got to see the first couple innings of the game. I found it amusing when Konerko scored from first on Crede's double. Like Freddy throwing a one hitter, you don't see that everyday...

Boondock Saint

Freddy's velocity on his fastball (if I remember correctly) was in the low 90's (90-93). And he used his breaking stuff very well, and he was hitting almost all of his spots. He really earned this one.

Freddy's breaking ball was awesome, and he hit his spots consistantly. He did hang 1 or 2 of them, but they were fouled off. This was a perfectly played game all around with the exception of Gooch forgeting to run home for absolutly no reason. I've never seen anything like that before.

I just got back from the game. Awesome, awesome performance from Freddy. 2nd best game I've ever seen in person. (The first being the AL Pennant Winner in Anaheim last year.)

And to the credit of the fans in Anaheim (many, many of whom were wearing Sox colors), they gave Freddy a standing ovation after the 8th. Great job today!

What a Game

He just kept on getting guys to Ground out and fly out.

Did you guys notice how many baserunners that Saunders guy had?

11 baserunners in 3 1/3 innings.

Thats like 3 1/3 an inning.

I was so mad that Kennedy got that one into center.

I was taping everything from the 6th on.

our starting rotation is looking better than it has for the last 2-3 months, hopefully we can start rolling. better late then never.

Better late than never is right. Wilbon was saying on PTI that he was retracting his prediction from 2 whole days ago that the Sox would win the pennant. He says their hitting hasn't been timely and their bullpen hasn't been shut down like it has been in the past. Guess PTI was filmed before this game. We're 1.5 behind Minnesota and with the current score of the Tigers game we'll be 3 games behind them at the end of the night. With 3 games against each the Tigers and the Twins as well as 10 other games, our destiny is in our hands. And that's all you can ever ask for. Better late than never! You gotta believe!

I jinxed it. I was talking about the no hitter til the 7th inning. Then I realized it was a perfect game. Then I talked about that. I am a jerk and I ruined Vazguez's no-hitter earlier this year. I have Jenn, skotty and wilkes to prove me right :(:

I just realized Freddy owes me a thank you. I dropped him from my fantasy roster last week. My fantasy team sucks. No player should want to be on that team. It's a tremendous jinx.

When you apologize to Freddy, tell him to send me a thank-you card.

I think ESPN.Com's Bill Simmons says that one should avoid putting players from their favorite team on their fantasy teams.... If I remember correctly, he made a bunch of guidelines to follow when drafting a fantasy team.... He's great

good to hear he was back in the 90s that 88 was not cutting it for freddy's style of pitching...

09-13-2006, 11:00 PM
I almost forgot. I jinxed it. When he got two down in the 8'th, I grabbed the phone. I told myself, "If he gets out of this inning, I'm calling everyone and letting them know about this." You know the rest...dammit.

I had to leave the house at 4:45p, so I set the VCR to tape for an hour, thinking there was no way I was missing potential history! While in the car (as a passenger), and with Kennedy at the plate, I typed up (but held off on sending) the following text message to a friend, "Sweaty Freddy has retired 24 in a row... you know what that means! The fans in Anaheim are cheering for him! This is incredible!" I closed the phone and waited for Kennedy to be retired so I could send the text. I had to edit the text message. :(:

Regardless of all the superstition surrounding the perfect game, this was an AWESOME game all-around (excluding Iguchi's baserunning blunder) and we can only hope that the past several starting pitching performances, combined with the loss of Liriano up in Minnesota (are we going to start getting all the breaks again??), will light the spark we've all been waiting for.

I am so happy our starting pitchers have come around. While I feel for Freddy for coming so close and not getting the perfect game or the no hitter, I'm still estatic about the win. It came at a time when I was really depressed about the way the Sox were performing.

Congrats Freddy on a really thrilling game and congrats Sox for finally performing up to your potential. Well done!!!!

This is very minor in light of Freddy's great game but when was the last time Cotts had a 1-2-3 inning?

I love Freddie...the guy doesn't have the best stuff, and often doesn't even have his own best stuff, but he's got guts...and guts is enough (to quote Gunnery Sgt Hartman). Of course, today he was sensational.

Cotts was okay in his last outing. That makes 2 in a row. We need him.

We need another 2/3 this weekend. Or maybe 3/3, just to teach Oak a lesson.

I was at the game today, and it was crazy... i didnt even notice he had a no no until the sixth, i was just concerned about winning... And all the angels fans were pulling for freddy to get the no hitter. When he struck out vlad in the 7th inning, the angels fans cheered. Anyways, it was a aweseome game, and on top of that twinkies and lions lost. on top of that LIRIANO IS DONE FOR HIS CAREER!!:gulp:

What the hell are you talking about? It's Liriano's fault that he got hurt? Gardenhire is a dumbass for rushing Liriano back, but to celebrate any type of injury is very moronic and bush, to put it mildly.

It's an embarassment to have people celebrate an injury to one of the great young pitchers of the game.

I was utterly shocked that Freddy pitched the way he did. But it was a good shock! :D: It shows he does have it in him. This is how Freddy needs to pitch from here on out. Let's hope he can. The rest of the pitchers seem to be getting their **** together. Freddy has always been the "questionable one." Lets hope they saved some runs for Oakland! As far as what happened with Iguchi....I don't know it's not like him to do something totally head up ass, so I'm gonna chalk it up to a brian fart.

Looked at the screen at work with the Sox leading 3-0 in the top of the 4th. Noticed Freddy had a no-no working, but it was only three innings, so I didn't think much of it. Noticed the Sox were leading later 7-0 and put the game out of my mind as a done deal. Checked a few more times including noticing that Cotts was pitching in the ninth, but never noticed the incredible job Freddy had done and didn't find out about it until reading this thread last night. Sorry you lost the no-no, Freddy. Great to get 2 or 3 in Annaheim...

Not sure if this was mentioned in this thread yet, but did anybody happen to hear the Singleton call after Kennedy broke up the no-no? He was commenting on how it "gives one chills" when something great like a no-no is happening and the LAAAAA fans were showing their appreciation by going wild FOR FREDDY after the single!!!

I mean, c'mon, how naive. I believe the exact same thing was said by ESPN after Randy Johnson's no hitter was broken up by the Sox earlier this year. There was no self-respecting Sox fan in that place that was cheering Johnson for a 'job-well-done'. They were applauding the moral victory that is FINALLY getting a god-damn-hit off the guy.

I chalk it up to homerism, but Singleton...Puh-Lease!!:rolleyes:

Two quick thoughts:

Taking care of business in Anaheim has knocked the Angels out as a serious contender once and for all. It's a three-way right now for 2 playoff spots.

Nothing wrong with the starting pitching lately; if that keeps up the rest of the time we WILL be in the playoffs.

Even without Liriano, I think Detroit is the team most likely to be aced out if said Sox starters keep it up.

I guess that makes three quick thoughts. Sue me. :redneck

I guess I'm not the only one that didn't notice Freddie's no-no until he blew it. :redface:

I was following the game via the Cubune's "From the Cubicle" and the guy updating it said something about "damn, he gave up a hit". Only then did I finally figure it out.

Did you watch the game? It was obvious the crowd was, for the most part, cheering on Freddy. There were a couple of ball calls that were close to being strikes, and when they were called balls, the crowd groaned. After the hit, a lot of them were on their feet applauding Freddy. You can tell the difference between an applaud for the hit, and an applaud for the pitcher.

Well, you could be right. I didn't see the game, but by the audio I heard later, there was a hooplah of cheers as soon as Kennedy got that single. It seemed pretty celebratory of the hit.
But either way, I was at the Sox game where Johnson's no-hitter was broken up (7th innning I think) and trust me, NOBODY was cheering the almost no-no. There was even a thread here about it. I later heard that ESPN, of course, made it sound like there was a grand round of adulation for Johnson. It just seems like a very similar situation.

Also, know we know the result for Uribe almost-collisions:

Were there as many Sox fans at the game as it seemed like from TV? All the shots of the first few rows of the infield looked like they were about 1/4 full of Sox fans.
