Ignoring last night's blown call, that's 3 perfect games in 2 months time! A perfect game has been one of the rarest events in sports.

And yet the Mets have still never thrown a no hitter.  Roll Eyes

And the pitcher's response? People are human and make mistakes. Talk about classy!    thumbsup

That call was a travesty.  I cant' imagine how pissed and disappointed I would be if I pitched a perfect game and didn't get credit.

even better, from SI:

"I just cost that kid a perfect game," the umpired admitted afterward. "I thought he beat the throw. I was convinced he beat the throw, until I saw the replay."

It was a classy move by Joyce, who also apologized to Galarraga personally. The pitcher told a Venezuelan reporter that Joyce was crying when he offered him his apology.

Mat Latos and Matt Cain have both been within an out or two of perfection in the last few weeks, as well. I guess pitching is back.

So who's going to throw the next one? Big Time Timmy Jim? Johan? Lee? Jimenez? Somebody no one has ever heard of, fifteen years from now?

i could only hope for lee, but considering how badly the M's have played, he could still end up with a loss after 9 hitless innings. 

not sure whether griffey leaving is good or bad.  he won't be there to drag down the average, but he won't be there for team leadership either.   icon_confused

Some guy on the Rays pitched a no hitter tonight.  Lack of steroids has killed hitting in baseball! slywink
