D'you think it bothers him, just in the back of his mind, that he was only one walk away from pitching a Perfect Game?

Weaver pitches a no hitter and Howard Kendrick goes 4-4 with a home run. Nice to see the Angels on my fantasy team contribute.

/especially since Kendrick forgot that they play baseball in April

I read that the runner he allowed with the strike three passed ball spoiled the perfecto. But the walk he gave up looked like a garbage call on the pitch tracker I was watching.

I'm about as big of a Twins fan as there is.

This season is very painful. 2001 - 2011 was such a good time. Not great, but good. Last year and this year are just painful. How could we not invest in our pitching staff at all? How can it have gotten this bad?

Congrats to Weaver though. Even against my hapless Twins, that's still impressive.

i was thinking how more money went to the stadium instead to the team.....they were competitive in the metrodome

serious question ? he struck out a batter that reached 1st base on a passed ball, would that still have counted as perfect if he hadn't walked a batter?

No. A perfect game is 27 up, 27 down and a win. Just like it wouldn't count if he'd hit a batter or someone had reached on an error.

/Yes, even if that runner was erased by a double play.

Perfect game:

9 or more inning complete game.
No runner reaches base under any circumstance.
 
2012-05-03 01:28:20 AM  
In other news, Albert Pujols had more hits than the entire opposing team and Carlos Beltran had 140% of Albert's season RBI total in one game tonight.

Has there ever been a pitcher so good that no batter even put a ball into the field of play? A game of only foul balls, strikes and called strikes?

I only know of one. Steve Nebraska of the New York Yankees struck out 27 batters in a row.

Pretty sure this is the closest anyone's come in professional baseball: Link.

I'm fairly positive that perfect games with nothing but strikeouts have occurred in various amateur leagues.

Would they have counted it as one with the passed ball strikeout?

Naw, I missed the passed ball. In order for a perfect game to count, no batter can reach under any circumstances.

Gardenhire should have been fired two years ago. If the team continues like this, there's no reason he should be the manager by the end of the year.

Nope. Perfect Game means 27 up and 27 down. When somebody reaches base even by a passed ball strikeout, that would mean 28 up and 27 down, which isn't a perfect game. That is why there are only 21 in the history of the game.

Little known fact, the first perfect game was thrown by a late 19th Century Jersey Shore Guido

From the wiki:

"After leaving baseball, Richmond became a doctor and later a professor. He was buried in Forest Cemetery in Toledo, Ohio."

Hope they waited til after he died.

/Or maybe they were just big Cleveland Blues fans.

A Perfect Game 2 weeks ago, and a No-Hitter today.

Baseball Season's off to an awesome start! ^_^
 
2012-05-03 06:32:48 AM  
So has there ever been a game where every batter fly-s out on the first pitch so that the pitcher only throws 27 pitches?

/being rediculous, I know.
 
2012-05-03 07:15:41 AM  
"First" no-hitter? How many more does he plan on throwing?

I will put money on the Twins getting no hit again this year.

ongbok: Nope. Perfect Game means 27 up and 27 down.


Well, it really means no one so much as makes it to first.

27 up, 27 down can happen with, say, a guy making it to first, then a double play happens, could happen with getting picked off, overrunning a base, trying to turn even a double into a triple.

CavalierEternal: D'you think it bothers him, just in the back of his mind, that he was only one walk away from pitching a Perfect Game?


I would imagine that, given the amount of no hitters vs. Perfect games, that a huge majority only come down to 1 mistake.
 
2012-05-03 09:46:48 AM  
Uggggh, frickin' Twins. Gonna be a loooooooong year. Congrats to Weaver, hes's a helluva pitcher.

We had a no hitter, perfect game, and triple plays. What's the odds someone hits for the cycle?

"Ooooh, ya know...baseball stuff"


Bullpens are weird places. Apparently during the series-opener in Houston earlier this week, the Mets' relievers found an injured bird in the visitor's bullpen and tried to nurse it back to health. It died mid-game and they had a moment of silence. I'm not kidding.

Scott Hairston hit for the cycle last Friday.

The Dodger Triple Play was a joke...but yes it did happen.

I think what we need is a Four Home Run game by someone...Braun just missed the other night with a Triple in that last at bat.
