Theoretically, the dude gave up a homerun in the 9th inning of a perfect game.

Thoughts?

I believe the word you're looking for is technically.

no. perfect games and no hitters take great defensive plays, unless you K 27 batters.

nope, that's the beauty of a perfect game, the miniscule line it is between a good start and baseball history

I find it funny that wise got more props and coverage than buehrle did

Well you kinda have to look at it that way. Wise DID save the game, cause not every CF can make that play and cover the amount of distance that he did. But on the other hand, Buerhle pitched an amazing game... And theres no "perfect game saving play" in the stat books. Wise may get the credit now, but it'll always be remembered as Buerhle's day.

buerhle gives alot of people motivation.

I bet he was the only person to get cut from his highschool team twice and throw 2 no hitters

It's happened before. In 2006 I wanna say, Freddy Garcia threw a 1 hitter and we lost the game (that one hit being a solo HR)

Yup, he did. Im sure in every other perfect game there were no good defensive plays made. In fact, for a game to be considered perfect the pitcher must get every guy out by himself. If anyone helps him, its not a perfect game. Baseball, after all, is not a team sport. (SARCASM)

no hitters and perfect games do not require any defensive plays from anyone besides the pitcher.



Op would have liked it if the pitcher not only pitched the ball but also ran to the CF and caught it.

Theoretically, every hit ball in a perfect game could have been a hit or an error.

There are almost always excellent defensive plays(Like the one Wise made) in perfect games.

As a Sox fan, I know Wise usually sucks. It's unexpected to see him make a great play.

We expect greatness from Buehrle.

lol I'm not trying to take anything away from what he did, but the dude had it on lock and he pitched a ball that 90% of the time would have been a home run. And no, I'm not a rays fan. Not really even a baseball fan, I just follow it.

Rays fan? He actually brings up a very good point. Technically he basically gave up a HR. It will never be remembered that way, but if there were brick walls there than there would be no perfect game.

How did he basically give up a homerun? A homerun entails a run(s) being scored, which obviously didn't happen. Either he gave up a homerun or he didn't. If there was a brick wall he still could have jumped up to catch it.

If it were a brick wall you can't really dig your cleats into the wall to help you climb.

Ok, since Wrigley Field is right next to gay town, technically every fan that attends Cubs games are gay, right? Take off the blinders man. Wise caught the ball, a homerun wasn't technically allowed. We could sit here and make up off the wall **** all day.

That's it, buehrle let someone hit the ball hard enough to go over the fence. Do you understand that or do you want me to draw you a picture.

I understand it completely, but can you draw a picture? I think it'll help me understand better. So when Zambrano pitched the no-hitter, I'm sure somebody hit the ball which required a play, right? So techinally, every pitcher that has thrown a perfect game and a no-hitter choked because they got hit? The fact of the matter is, it WASN'T a homerun.

Why do you keep bringing up the cubs? wtf does that have to do with anything.

yay you understand the point. *clap* i think it's time for your nap now, you've worked hard.

Because maybe then you would start being realistic. Wrigley is right next to gay town, so people that go to Wrigley, technically must be gay. That is the same thing as Wise robbed Gabler of a homerun, so technically Buehrle didn't have a perfect game. I don't know man, I still can't grasp the concept. Can you draw a picture? I mean, just to understand completely what you're saying, I think it'll help.

Yup and everyone at the cell is on welfare, paying child support and fresh out of jail, maybe that's why you guys can't sell out. Stop bringing up random crap, i have nothing against buehrle. It was an awesome game to watch.
