Are we all glad that we didn't trade Buehrle at the deadline a few years back?

I can't remember who was talking about it a few days ago, but when have you ever heard a stadium chanting "Sign Buehrle" like we were that year?

You know how I know this is crazy. Carlos Quentin was smiling running to Buehrle after the last out.

Gabe Kapler had a really great postgame interview, I have to admit, I like the guy alot after hearing his perspective.

 

After his "where the f*** did he come from" catch, I started to like him too.

Buster Olney just dropped the stat that Mark was on the mound for a total of only 32 minutes in the game today. That is an impressive pace, even for the quickest worker in the game.

I figured it has never happened before, so i got curious and checked it out. Buehrle is indeed the first pitcher in baseball history to have thrown a no-hitter and a perfect game with the same umpire behind the plate.

 

Well, there were only 6 pitchers to do it...

From the clip I saw on whitesox.com it was one of the greatest catches ever. It seems like all no hitters have at least one game saving play.

 

Thank You Mark Buehrle we love ya, man!!

He has faced the minimum 3 times I believe. Actually it is at least 3, if not 4.

Koufax faced the minimum in another one of his no-hitters (one walk, got a caught stealing). Of the 4 other guys to have a perfect game and another no-hitter, I can't find box scores for Young and Joss, but Johnson and Bunning didn't face the minimum in their other no-hitters. Even more rarified air for Buehrle.

I was thinking the same thing. It's one of those things where you are embarrassed, but it's such a piece of baseball history.

What you have to love about Mark is that 15 years from now he will sit and watch this game with his kids and he will be exactly the same guy. He's an awesome man's man.

I am not sure if anyone has mentioned this, but the ONLY way someone catches Kapler's ball in the 9th is if they are left handed. There is no possible way someone can make that play with their left hand being the glove hand...

 

Maybe it was meant to be....

It's been mentioned and I actually don't understand how people assume this. In the position that Wise was in, no, but he is left handed obviously and has no reason to be in any other position. A right handed player jumps, his arm is closer to the ball and his glove is turned backwards from the way Wise's was, but they wouldn't have their palm open the way Wise did either. The glove would've been there but the basket would more or less be in the same position. It's not something that's easy to do but catching a ball over the yellow line is already hard to do.

And he'll be able to point out at least 1 of his kids.

Buehrle faced the minimum I believe in 2004. He actually gave up 2 hits in that game.

The Rays are one of the classiest organizations in all of baseball. They gave Buehrle a round of applause, immediately following the final out. Buehrle, being Buehrle, bowed to them.

Mark Buehrle Throws 18th Perfect Game in MLB History

By SoxNet

 

Chicago White Sox starter Mark Buehrle threw the 18th perfect game in MLB history on Thursday. The perfect game was part of a 5-0 victory against the Tampa Bay Rays which gave the Sox a share of the division league with the Detroit Tigers. The perfect game was the 2nd in White Sox history. Mark Buehrle has now started and closed a world series game, thrown a perfect game, and a no-hitter. We are researching but we believe he might be the first player in MLB history to accomplish all of those tasks and he is the 6th player in MLB history to throw both a no-hitter and a perfect game....More at the Link (Including Video's, Image's, Quotes, and Interesting Facts)

 

Note: A few Soxtalk posters have been quoted in the article :)

He throws a perfect game and gets congratulated by getting his name spelled wrong by the masses on Twitter.

P.S. The post game show on CSN was longer than the game.
