Awesome year, Ozzie Guillen is gone, Dunn is hitting and a Perfect Game from our #5 Starter!!!
Now I'm going out to buy some champagne and have a blast I can't believe this was on National TV. I was too superstitious to tivo the last inning...
Close call I’d probably be little miffed if I were a Mariner fan. Looks like he went to me though. And I know I’ve seen countless hitters called out on identical check swings. Read an article by some guy questioning it, it seemed what he was really mad about was that they cut away from his precious Yankees for 10 minutes (out of what like 6 hours?) to show it nationwide.
Twice umpires have screwed guys out of perfect games, Milt Pappas and especially the pitiable Armando Galarraga, it’s a shame Bud Selig didn’t have the balls to rectify that latter situation. So I’m glad that didn’t occur again.
You know what Hawk Harrelson would have said,
YES HE DID, HE GONE!!!! COME ON AJ, YEEEEEEEESSSSS!!
Why or why did this game have to be on Fox?! At least Joe Buck and Tim McCarver didn’t call it (not that Dave Sims and Eric Karros did a particularly good job). I presume they were in Boston.
Meanwhile, the team that drafted Humber (Mets) is still in search of it’s first no-hitter.
