It was the 18th perfect game in MLB history and the first in five years (the last one was Randy Johnson in 2004). He got a spectacular assist with a great catch by DeWayne Wise in the top of the ninth.

He also joins the group of pitchers with multiple no-hit games to his credit.

Mark Buehrle has always been a class act, and one of my favorite players ever to wear a Sox uniform. Good day for a good man.

I wish all pitchers worked as fast as Buerhle does.

I have been told only five other pitchers have thrown multiple no-no's including a perfect game. All but one of them is in the HOF, and the fifth is Randy Johnson.

Good company to be in.

They were talking about this on ESPN News- Game took a shade over 2 hours- Buerhle did his work in about 32 minutes. Impressive.

The feat is made even sweeter by the fact that it TWICE came within less than an inch of getting broken up.

Buehrle deserves all the credit, but he'd better buy dinner for DeWayne Wise.

I was in the middle of reading Bill Simmons "now I can die happy" chapter on the near no hitter Pedro Martinez threw against (ironically) Tampa, when I heard about this on the radio.

Buehrle has always seemed like a class act. Good for him!

Dear ChiSox,

Welcome back to the top of the division. Hope we kept the seat warm enough for you! We'll just be off here mulling around third place and swinging wet noodles around like a sweaty Italian chef.

Signed,

Yeah, I'd like to see this guy come home to St. Louis.

And what a bonus it was to have a Mike Adamle sighting doing a post game interview. I wonder if he opened calling him "Mike Barley" or something.

I turned on the local cable replay when I saw the thread, caught the last 4 innings. Even knowing it was going to be a perfecto, I still yelled when Wise made that catch.

Tim Kurkjian moment: Home plate umpire Eric Cooper was also the plate umpire for Buehrle's *other no-hitter, in 2007.

Not only was it the same ump, he also faced the min. 27 batters both times, and both times the game was 2 Hours, 3 Minutes long.

The question I have is what this does in reference to the Hall of Fame. On CNNSI.com someone made reference to if he plays till 41 and gets X amount of wins, he can hit the 300 mark for wins. If Buehrle does not hit the 300, does this boost his chances to get into the Hall?

Consider;

- 1 No hitter.
- 1 Perfect game.
- 1 World Series ring.
- Decent stats otherwise.



You know, I really don't know what to put here. Close your eyes and thank of something funny!

I think this current generation of pitchers will likely start to get in at 250 wins as the near auto-benchmark. Guys just are not getting the starts needed for 300 wins anymore, and the hitters have just gotten too good to put up 23-25 win seasons year after year. Right now no one has more wins at age 30 than Buehrle, and he only has 130. I think if Buehrle keeps his .600 win percentage and ends up with 250 or more, he makes it in.

Yeah, I think he's going to wind up being the "test case" for the new standards of pitching, since 300 is starting to look like an endangered species. If he can get another ring or 2, or maybe toss another no-hitter, it's an easier case for him, but he may also wind up being one of those guys who everyone debates heavy each election, and gets like 50-60% of the vote for 4 or 5 years before he makes it in.

If you're looking at the numbers, he's got 133 wins right now, and came in to this year averaging 14 wins a year. At that pace, it'll take him another 12 seasons to hit 300.

Ron Santo was the favorite player of an old friend of mine, Deb Cherry. She, like Santo, was a Type 1 diabetic. She worked very hard raising funds and awareness for juvenile diabetes.
