I just watched the 9th inning on mlb. Two things struck me:

1. What on earth is Hernandez doing taking at 3-1 with a perfect game on the line??? :-S
2. YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! :-[

Congrats to you Sox fans, though. That was great stuff. ;-D

Anyone know how how long the game took? Between the 27 up/down and Buehrle working as quickly as he does, I can imagine that game screaming by...


2 hrs and 3 minutes. Noone mentioned it but he got a call from President Obama after the game which I thought was pretty cool.

crazy coincidence that Burhle had the same home plate up during his first no-hitter.

Amazing that he did it against one of the top 3 offenses in baseball, and not against a Padres-level team.
Congrats ;-D

Probably something to do with Buehrle going 0 for 0 as a batter.

Meet Eric Cooper, the Tim Donaghy of baseball!

You know, if you were the suspicious type, this may cause your eyebrows to raise a bit:

Some umpires can work their entire careers and never find themselves behind the plate for a no-hitter. Eric Cooper has been the plate umpire for three of them, including two by White Sox left-hander Mark Buehrle, who pitched a perfect game Thursday against the Tampa Bay Rays . . .

. . . How's this for strange? Cooper has been behind the plate for each of Buehrle's last three shutouts -- the perfect game Thursday, the no-hitter April 18, 2007, at U.S. Cellular Field against the Texas Rangers and a 6-0 victory against the Los Angeles Dodgers on June 17, 2005, at the Cell. Cooper, 38, also was behind the plate for Boston Red Sox right-hander Hideo Nomo's no-hitter against the Baltimore Orioles on April 6, 2001.

Sadly, there isn't any suggestion that Buehrle is paying off Cooper or anything, because that would be the bestest story ever (at least if you were a writer). If you're Ozzie Guillen, though, don't you mess with your pitching staff to ensure that Buehrle is on the mound the next time Cooper is behind the plate when his crew's in town? If, for no other reason, than to boost your ace's confidence?

Bob Brenley said of Cooper yesterday that while he was with the D'backs: "he ejected me from a ballgame when I suggested that his strike zone was big as the world."
And Cooper was behind the plate for Hideo Nomo's no hitter in 2001. That is the 3rd nohitter.
