i want a perfect game!!

8 posts in this topic

i hate seeing huge deals made out of no-no's when the guy walks 4 batters. is it still an awesome game, yes. but 2 walks that i saw were full counts when a guy would have gone after the hitter instead of staying away to keep the no hitter alive. anybody else think this is overblown a little bit. i got excited when i saw a REPLAY of david cones perfect game and i knew it was a perfect game while i was watching it.

I do not believe it was overblown. I seen some of the highlights and his breaking ball was unreal. There is nothing wrong with a 3-2 breaking ball. Props to Verlander.

How can you not be inmpressed with a no hitter? Granted not a perfect game, but they are tough to come by. Not only do you have to have your best stuff, lots of things have to go your way. I'm impressed with all no-no's espescially in the big leagues when everything is in the hitters favor. Ok the 3-4 pitcher combined no hitter is a little much.

Coincidence? The same umpire called Verlander's no-hitter and Schilling 1-hitter.

I think the umps should widen the strike zones. Get the batters to swing more. I want to see the game won or lost from the ball being in play, not because of walks. To many guys stand up there looking for the perfect pitch, and alot of times the umps will make the pictures throw one to get a strike.

In view of the fact that Verlander's no-hitter was just the sixth in the 100 year history of the Tigers I do not think it was overblown. Over analyzed and over covered? Yes, but so is everything else in this age of multiple 24 hour/day sports channels. I swear that those ESPN guys must be paid by the word. Old Sneller

Many of our current pitching gods have never thrown a no-no. Clemens, Santana, many more no doubt. It's obviously a very significant accomplishment, even with a few walks thrown in.

        My buddy and his dad dropped there front end of there pickup in on lake bemidji Saturday luckley they were able to get out with out harm. After all the rain and warm temps hopefully people learn now to stop driving. If you do go out walk not worth the risk. I'm looking at the forcast and after tonight the lows for nights are in the teens so hopefully things may heal up and I can get out a few more times. It's the middle of February I'm not going to be putting things away yet feels like I just got things out!

      We had to ride snowmobiles 30 miles out of the Canadian bush Monday and it was a mess. Filled our Otters with water even with covers strapped on.

      From what I am seeing on the Arnesen webcam, there is not much snow left.  Sleds would need scratchers.  Wheelers maybe a better option until we get more snow and there is none in the forecast.

      Coming up Thursday morning and planning on making the run to the reefs/islands via snowmobile.  Is there any loose snow left on the trail to keep the sleds cool, or would a 4 wheeler be necessary?  Any information from locals there would be very much appreciated.  Thx.
