Always special watching a no hitter.

Maybe it's my Canadian bias, but how can anyone who follows sports not like Matt Stairs? He is as old school as they come. The dude is 41 years old. He does no off-season training at all. He doesn't pick up a bat until spring training. Couldn't give a sh!t about working out or getting fit. And he doesn't hide the fact that all he's looking to do when he gets up to the plate is crush a ball out of the park. And very few baseball players hit a ball deeper when they connect.

Here's a deep shot from last night.

It's a shame that he's in the NL and relegated to pinch hitting for a pitcher. He still could be a pretty good DH somewhere in the AL.

Yeah this guy was a sleeper pickup by the Phillies last year.. he had a huge pinch-hit HR for them in the NLCS vs the dodgers that pretty much put away the series.

but this is hilarious:

Buehrle's got a perfect game going through 8 innings for the White Sox against the Rays.

Of course, the free Extra Innings preview is done. :doh1:

One out from a perfect game. White Sox outfielder pulls back a home run in the 9th to preserve the perfect game. Unreal.

He got it! Wow.

The catch by Wise will be on highlight reels for a long time, too. He goes up, grabs it from over the wall, nearly loses it, juggles and catches in his non-gloved hand. To record the first out in the ninth inning to preserve a perfect game. As a defensive replacement, added to the game to start the ninth.

Beuhrle owes him a steak.

Mark Buehrle, baby! How 'bout dem Sox!

Tied with the Tigers now. If Quentin can regain even a fraction of last year's form, and Danks rebounds from his latest blister injury, the Sox just might make a serious run for the Central again.

Wish I could have seen some of this. :( I don't even have cable right now, so I'll have to hit up all the highlights online tomorrow.

I tried to propose to my boss that the office should close early when somebody throws a perfect game. He didn't quite go for it. :D

*sigh*

i still wonder when the mets will ever get their first no hitter/perfect game (yes non-mets fans you read that right, FIRST.. they have been around for 40+ years and still nobody has thrown a no hitter, let alone a perfect game!) :angry:

Yeah that annoyed me too...until I remembered the MLB Network. Sure enough they had live coverage of the ninth inning (at least) with the Chicago feed :clap:

Just saw "the catch". Absolutely incredible with the amount of ground he covered to get to the ball and the timing was perfect.

Here are all 27 outs.

I wonder if Roy Halladay is going to be dealt. I still think Philly will get him, IF hes traded that is.. there was some rumor about the Mets having interest with that 1 offer (and fwiw, that deal would have been terrible from a Jays standpoint, I'm sure they could get a MUCH better package than that) but that could have been just to entice the Phils to owe up and make a deal (or it could have just been a false report, which seems to be the indication now)..

I also heard the Cards are interested in Halladay... that would give them a pretty formidable rotation: Halladay, Carpenter, Wainwright, Lohse, Pineiro -- jeez, thats 5 pretty damn good starters.. although I think they desperately need an OF'er (Ankiel is having a miserable year) more than they do a starting pitcher. Matt Holliday would be a good pickup for St Louis

edit: and that was a hell of a catch by Wise .. if anyone remembers Jonathan Sanchez's no hitter, Aaron Rowand made a great catch at the wall too. Seems like there is always at least 1 of 2 unbelievable defensive plays in no hitters.

Cardinals acquire Holliday

as i said yesterday, this is exactly what they needed. im not a big holliday fan, i think stats were really inflated in coors field but hes still a nice player and plays great defense.. ill have a trade write up on my blog about it later, i still gotta check out the kids the cards' gave up - the 1 name that pops out is brett wallace though, #2 prospect in the cards' system, and i always liked him and he impressed me with some nice at bats in the Futures Game a few weeks ago.

heres my blog post on the deal: http://atdiamond.blo...-cardinals.html

I thought it was a nice deal for both sides, especially the A's, who I thought got a great return.

Wallace from St. Louis was referred to as an elite hitting prospect by baseball america so they A's probably got more than they would've from the draft picks. And they really need the hitting bad.

I don't know how far away he is, but he's their first really good hitting prospect in awhile and will go well with Cardenas, who they got from Philadelphia last year

yeah i had that in my blog post; if they hung onto Holliday and got draft picks there is no way they would get what they got from the Cardinals. I mean they would be lucky enough if they could get a player of Wallace's caliber, let alone 2 extra prospects that could be very useful.

Wallace shouldn't be very far off at all (from the Bigs).. hes already up to AAA and not showing signs of struggling.. Im still amazed how quickly he moved up the Cards' system considering he was just drafted last year; thats impressive.

I don't know how far away he is, but he's their first really good hitting prospect in awhile and will go well with Cardenas, who they got from Philadelphia last year


yeah i like Cardenas (obviously Philly has no use for SS and 2B prospects), he tore up AA this year hitting .352/.421/.481 with an even 37 BB and strikeouts; wow.. I think he was recently promoted to AAA.. hes still very young too, only 21; its not like he was one of those 24 or 25 year old kids that are in AA and tearing up the league because they are old for the league.

edit: almost forgot about Josh Outman who was part of that same deal.. hes 4-1 with 3.48 ERA in 12 starts for Oakland this year.. and the last kid in that deal, Matt Spencer, has put up nice numbers in A+ and AA.. I'd say the A's made it out pretty well in that Blanton deal.
