Buehrle perfect game
Posted by cbadnmb2001 (+37) 12 years ago
As a huge White Sox fan I am totally jacked over the perfect game pitched by Sox lefty Mark Buehrle. This well pitched game was saved in the 9th inning on the great catch by Dewayne Wise.
Great game Buerhle!! GO SOX!!!
P.S. Thanks Seattle

I was lucky enough to catch the last 2 innings of this game on the MLB network. Brilliant baseball. Ozzie Guillen put in a center fielder in the 9th, just for defense. He then makes the best catch in the history of baseball, considering the circumstances. Just great baseball. A pitcher that has in the past, thrown a no - hitter, with absolutely nothing that could be considered over powering stuff. He manages his game very well, pitching to spots, and pitching quickly. He has been known to throw 2 hour games. He got in a rythym, and the Rays, a great hitting team, had no idea what was happening until the 7th inning or so. I am not a White Sox fan at all, but this was just amazing to watch. Purely as a baseball fan. I applaud Mark Buerhle for his effort on the mound today. I appreciate being a very small part of his audience. Well done young man. You should be very proud.

VERY impressive game by Buehrle. I don't like him when he pitches against the Sox (the real Sox), but he's a fun player to watch. Much like Josh Beckett, when he's on, he's ON.

But I think we're all missing the point. Buehrle's perfect game came in the regular season. And the only stats that matter are ones from championship-winning teams. Only Don Larsen's perfect game for the Yankees in Game 5 of the 1956 World Series against the Brooklyn Dodgers REALLY counts.

According to Derflogic (to which I am now a mindless devotee), that makes Don Larsen (career record 81-91) the Greatest Pitcher Ever.

Normally I'd say that works for me but considering two other Yankees - Cone & Wells (albeit hung-over) have acomplished this feat I'll go with Brian on this one.

Perfect is perfect Brian. Not his fault he had to do it against a team that played in the World Series LAST YEAR! You pitch against whoever is in the other dugout, on that day. Would it count more, in your opinion, if he had done it against the REAL Sox? Thats kind of boorish. He has pretty much nothing to do with the schedule. Take the ball when it's your turn, and lets see what you have. 27 up, and 27 down. Only the 18th time in Major League baseball history. Not being a math major, I suspect that is several 10's of thousands of games played. But lets try it, just for grins. Just counting the regular season, there is 4860 games played every year. Just for easy math, lets go with 100 years of major league baseball. Round number. That is...........wait for it..................486,000 baseball games played. Lets cut that in half, because 2 teams play in every game. Still 243,000 thousand baseball games played. And 18 guys have pitched a perfect game? Not only should you be singing his praises, you should babysit his kids for free. Happily. Just because. I know I would. I've seen at least parts of several no hitters on TV, and 1 in person. Chris Bosio with the Mariners. So far beyond cool that I don't know the words to describe it. And I know most of the words. A perfect game is so much better. No hits, no walks, no errors. A beautiful event that needs to be acknowledged. Are you telling me that hitting 4 home runs in a game is crap, unless it happens in a playoff game? How about hitting for the cycle? No big deal unless a Yankee does it? Come on dude! You are way smarter than that.

I am merely following in the footsteps of the Great and Powerful Derf, nothing more.

Derf doesn't believe that statistical accomplishments matter unless they lead to a championship, so I don't either. I have found that it is far easier to just agree with Derf.

After all, Derf is never wrong.

I really need a book with all these rules spelled out clearly. Maybe Derf can write one for me? If it's all written down, in big crayon letters, I promise I can play the game as Derf intends it to be played. The book will however, need to have pictures. Me being not all that bright and stuff and poop and things.

Getting back to where this started.

No, Brian was right. Don Larsen had been mentioned earlier and I missed it.

My mistake, I guess. I'm not really sure though, who was at fault in this exchange. Wendy for missing facts in evidence or me for assuming she had read the thread.

You're a lawyer, Wendy? Is that right?

You must have been busy checking grammar and punctuation.

No, I don't presume to know who your mother dated in high school. It was just a SWAG in response to your question since it couldn't have been Don Larsen--Right? He'd already been mentioned.

Kyle.

How old am I?

Too damn old to sit back and take a constant barrage of insults and personal attacks from a nut-job with an obsessive-compulsive disorder. If you accept the way he dumps on your head every time you post, that's your prerogative. Enjoy.

Brian, you don't have to wait until August.

C'mon Brian. Cut the "phone call" crap. It's nothing but a sham-play to the morons here, and you know it.

So, what would we have to talk about Brian? Could we work out our differences like---adults? Can we be drinking buddies?

I think not. Your obsession with having to demean and degrade has driven our exchanges far beyond the point of any rational discussion. You shat the bed a long time ago and there's no going back. I suppose the "adult" thing to do would be to just ignore you but since I am "an angry little prick", it's just not in my nature. You're a jerk and you need to be treated like a jerk. Being on the phone won't change that.

I have no intention of dropping a dime on you Mr. Reed, and stones have nothing to do with it. You are of zero use or importance to me,---unless-- there might be some profit potential involved. That is, unless there is a dollar in it for me, calling you would be a waste of my time as I can get more than enough of your lame drivel, right here, for free.

Since I am a capitalist angry little prick, I have a proposal that may solve your phone jonesin. You appear to be in serious need of professional abuse therapy and the 900 numbers just aren't doing it for you any more. E-mail me your credit card information. I'm sure we can work something out.

Nice mea culpa there, Jimbo. It really is impossible for you to accept that something might be different than the (mistaken) way you've perceived it to be, isn't it? And you say that I'm the one with mental issues? Laughable.

Not that facts matter to you, but here's what Wendy actually posted (not what you imagined she posted):

While in high school, my mother dated the only pitcher to pitch a perfect game in the world series. Care to guess who? Extra points for getting the right year.

What "missing facts" are there, Jimbo? There is only one pitcher to have ever pitched a perfect game in the World Series. His name is Don Larsen. Wendy's mother dated Don Larsen.

Had Wendy said "My mother dated the only pitcher to have ever hit a grand slam in a World Series game," you'd be correct in guessing Dave McNally. But she said absolutely nothing of the sort. You only imagined she did - and then blamed her for your inability to understand a simple sentence. The unmitigated nerve of that (uppity) woman!

But as usual, instead of admitting that *gasp!* you could possibly have been wrong, you stuck with what you know and blamed someone else for your problems.

That's why you're a coward, Jimbo. You refuse to hold yourself accountable for your own shortcomings. You fail to recognize the hypocrisy of nearly everything you say, opting instead to project it on others.

Too damn old to sit back and take a constant barrage of insults and personal attacks from a nut-job with an obsessive-compulsive disorder. If you accept the way he dumps on your head every time you post, that's your prerogative. Enjoy.

Kyle and I get along quite well, Jimbo. We disagree on several points, but we're not so different that we don't respect one another. Unlike you, Kyle can recognize the difference between a "personal attack" and a difference of opinion.

If you actually read my responses to "everything he posts," you'd realize that. Or you could just ask him and he'd say the same thing. Or you could just go with what your brain tells you, which reminds me of a Sirius Black quote:

"Once again you've put your keen and penetrating mind to the task and as usual come to the wrong conclusion."

And the rest of your post?

Posted by Brian A. Reed (+6014) 12 years ago
Derf - it's Mister Kwisatz Haderach to you.

Koufax was an outstanding pitcher, especially over the second half of his relatively short (12-year) career.

The first half? Not so much.

From 1955-60, Koufax was 36-40 (.474 pct) with a 4.10 ERA and a rather pedestrian 1.69:1 strikeout-to-walk ratio.

But the last six seasons - and especially the last four - of his career were as good as anyone has ever pitched.

Two lessons to be learned here:

Lesson #1 (for Kyle): Don't give up on Brandon Morrow so soon.
Lesson #2 (for Derf): Other pitchers were better sooner and longer.
