Philip Humber: Not A Fluke

Over the weekend, Philip Humber had the game of his life, throwing the 21st perfect game in baseball history against the Seattle Mariners. While the Mariners have a lousy offense and Safeco Field is a fantastic place to pitch, those factors shouldn’t diminish what Humber accomplished. A lot of good pitchers have faced a lot of lousy offenses over the years, and only 20 men before...

Perfect-Game Humber Near-Perfect Bet To Fail In Next Start

Philip Humber does something tonight that only five pitchers since 1999 have done - start a game on the heels of a perfect game. And if history teaches baseball bettors anything about the Perfect Game Hangover, it's that betting on that pitcher to have a quality start is a money-losing proposition. In those five games, the next outing was a loss for the pitcher who was perfect...

Philip Humber is pitcher perfect

And just like that, Philip Humber is in the Major League Baseball record books. On Saturday against the Seattle Mariners, the White Sox pitcher accomplished one of the most difficult feats in baseball-the perfect game. The game was only the 21st of its kind in the history of baseball and the Sox have the privilege of having three of them. Humber has been pretty much an unknown player...

Dissecting Philip Humber’s Wild Perfect Game

According to the raw neutrality of the win probability chart, the Seattle Mariners actually had a chance to win the game last Saturday: Source: FanGraphs But it did not know — nor did the players know — what day it was. A.J. Pierzynski did not realize the significance of that first pitch, sailing wide to his glove side. Philip Humber may have even felt a twinge of frustration...

Red Sox-White Sox Preview

The Chicago White Sox's Philip Humber was perfect his last time out. While the 29-year-old right-hander dominated one of the less potent teams in baseball, he appears to have a much more difficult matchup this time around against the Boston Red Sox. Humber takes the hill for the first time since his remarkable performance as Chicago and Boston open a four-game set Thursday...

Happy Hour- A little history lesson

This weekend, after Philip Humber pitched the 21st perfect game in history I wondered to myself what the record was for fewest pitches in a complete game. Well, the answer brought up one of the most interesting games in history in my opinion, and I’m going to tell you about it. In 1944, the Cincinnati [...]

Mets Card of the Week: 2007 Philip Humber

2007 TOPPS PHILIP HUMBER So another ghost of Mets’ pitchers past tossed a no hitter. A perfect game, no less. And I swear I’m not bitter about it. You’ll get no “Bah, Humber” from me… On the contrary, I leaned out my window the next morning and told a passing street urchin to buy for me the fattest goose in all of Christendom, such was my joy. OK, I think I’ve officially...

Phil Humber Relays A ‘Perfect’ Lesson … That Has Nothing To Do With Baseball

This post originally appeared here at my personal blog, Primility.com.

Add Phil Humber To The List

PHILIP HUMBER: Nice thing for a nice guy. Add Phil Humber to the list of ex-Mets to throw a no-hitter. Tom Seaver, Nolan Ryan seven times, David Cone and Dwight Gooden. Meanwhile, the Mets’ franchise doesn’t have any. I liked dealing with Humber when he was with the Mets. He was always pleasant to speak with and had a good sense of humor. At the time, I was happy for him when...

Red Sox Live Blog: Recently Perfect Philip Humber Set to Square Off Against Sharp Felix Doubront

8 a.m. ET: On the heels of their first sweep of the season, the Red Sox (7-10) are looking to continue showcasing that offensive surge in Chicago against the White Sox (10-8).

Humber-uh, Humber-uh, Humber-uh

Let Kate Upton know that Philip Humber is now allowed entrance into the Perfect Club as he retired 27 straight Mariners (here’s a tip: don’t get too close to Dallas Braden in the sauna).  That’s only the 21st perfect game in history – surprisingly, as you would’ve thought at least that many pitchers would have thrown perfect games against the Mariners last year.  Kudos...
