110ish pitches isn't horrible. But I also loved his smiley face fail. Endearing to me too. :-)

Wonder if he ends up losing the SHO now. That would really stink.

Generally, I agree with person award stuff, a) it's a perfect game. He may never get the chance again. b) there is a 7 run lead. Let him have it.

Sometimes it is Carl Everett.

Despite great analysis I sometimes wonder whether or not you enjoy baseball. It was a possible perfect game and he was only at 110 pitches. I also liked his reaction.
