In his defense, Cabrera seemed even more surprised that it went out. He basically threw his bat down in disgust after hitting it.

Nine Ks through four perfect innings for Darvish. So about what we should have expected against the Astros.

If it weren't for an Aoki home run on 1 team I'd be completely bereft of round trippers this year. Yet my pitchers seem to give them away like they are going out of style. Hopefully tomorrow's full slate will equalize things. If nothing else, my Marmol meltdown watch is a new favorite event. Memories of Heathcliff Slocumb for the Sox are conjured.

Chances that Darvish throws 130 pitches while chasing a no hitter/perfect game? He's only thrown like 90 so far, but I can imagine Nolan Ryan personally going into the dugout and telling Washington he's fired if he doesn't let Darvish try to finish it out.

I think he'll only get to 120 pitches and he will go for it.

Well, I'm watching it. Hope he gets it done. Reminds me of watching RJ's perfect game on MLB.tv back in 2004. Back then it was a glorified CCTV feed but it's amazing it's been around that long.
