Worst pitcher in MLB history to throw a perfect game?
I think he stuck around longer than Dallas Braden? I could be wrong though. That's the only other one that comes to mind.
Braden had 25 more starts and had 2 good years. Humber had 2011 and that's it.
Less than 100 pitches too. I know it's cliche and all, but more evidence that Coop is a genius.
Rios sure liked to olé shit.
I remember I was at the University of Chicago library during the game working on my epic, CALI-award earning International Labor Law capstone paper analyzing the interplay between the proposed Iraqi Labor Code, the struggle of Iraqi oil workers for basic worker protections, and the US-led effort to place Iraqi oil production into the hands of foreign companies. But top of mind was South Side/Jesus Hero Phillip Humber's date with SOX destiny.
Heard the final out while on my way home and gave a hearty
We went and saw a movie in the morning; I can't remember what it was now; turned the radio on leaving the theater then went to the tavern down the street and watched that last four innings or so. I did not throw up on this occasion.
I have no fucking clue what I did that day.
I was down in Bloomington for Little 5. Forgot they were playing and got a text asking if I was it and was all
Turned on the game about 1/2 way through, more for background noise. Watched the last 3 innings thinking the whole time.. This guys a bum, he is going to blow it.

I was apparently out of town...no doubt Coachella-ing it.
I didn't find out about it until I got a text from my friend. It just said, "Who the hell is Phillip Humber?"
Just saw this video on FB. That last strikeout was a gift.
Holy shit, what a gay gentleman Brendan Ryan was jaw-jacking about a super borderline check-swing call on the last out of a 4-0 perfect game. STFU dude.
Underrated poster that Mike Squires.
I changed my profile title in his honor.
Yeah of all the possible close calls you can start flipping out about, not sure why he was so pissed
And new avatar!
From the Humber game wiki
and all in one
To be fair, who the fuck wants to see White Sox/Mariners in April? None of us could even be bothered to watch this shit. Don't know why anybody outside of those markets would care.
Not like I need to see another epic 4 hour matchup of those two east coast fuckfaces either, but still.
Yeah I'm surprised that was even a nationally televised game to begin with
That was an awkward catch in the 9th
I know. I was more intrigued by the matter-of-factness in which Wikipedia explains East Coast sports BIAS
I remember shopping at WALMART when I got a notification on my PHONE that a SOX pitcher had thrown a PERFECT GAYYYYYME.
Reading through the game thread, I see that basically pulled a cheeses and liveblogged the game. No recollection of watching that game sans the last inning.
Also started the post game thread.
Chae just called me the most self loathing Sox fan IRL. We're at this miserable game currently.
What's it, a balmy 51 degrees there?
This dude complains about everything just like his one IRL buddy told me a month ago.
Was about to snap a pic. 76 degrees on the scoreboard. Pulled up the camera and it became 48.
