Philip Humber threw the 21st perfect game in MLB history on Saturday as his White Sox defeated the Mariners 4-0. Humber struck out nine, got five groundouts, and 13 flyouts as he retired all 27 batters he faced. Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis reminds us of the reward Humber will receive for his historical feat:
Congrats to P. Humber on the PG… Now you get to hang out with Kate Upton.#sorryverlander

That was a reference to the MLB 2K12 commercial featuring Kate Upton, dean of the Perfect Club:
Justin Verlander may have a Cy Young and MVP, but he’s still not in the Perfect Club. He did respond to Humber’s accomplishment on Saturday and mentioned the Perfect Club:
Asked Justin Verlander about The Perfect Club: “Just can’t get in. Kate Upton’s just going to let (Humber) go right by now and stop me.”

BEST OF MAXIM
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...
Philip Humber pitched the 21st perfect game in the history of Major League Baseball on Saturday, and on Thursday, the Red Sox will likely get to face him in Chicago. The Red Sox, 4-10 on the season after blowing a 9-0 lead to the Yankees on Saturday, travel to Minnesota on Monday and Chicago on Thursday. If Humber pitches on five days' rest, he would host the Red Sox at U.S....
Before Philip Humber, there was Lee Richmond. Humber on Saturday became the 21st pitcher in major league history to throw a perfect game, blanking the Mariners at Safeco Field in Seattle. Baseball's first perfect game, however, took place about 50 miles from Fenway Park. Lee Richmond tossed the first perfect game in baseball history in Worcester, Mass., on June 20, 1880. Richmond...
Going into their West Coast road trip, the White Sox were at .500 and had their sights set on one thing: winning each of the series that they play in.
After they won Friday night’s game behind Adam Dunn’s strong performance, they could secure the upper hand in the first series by notching a win Saturday afternoon.
Luckily for the Sox, their number 5 pitcher Phillip Humber was...

On the plane trip to Seattle, I’m sure no one expected this. Philip Humber, of the Chicago White Sox, took the mound Saturday afternoon and totally blanked the Seattle Mariners. PERFECT GAME!!! This is the first no-hitter of the season and the first perfect game since Roy Halladay threw one on 5/29/10. Humber throws the 21st perfect game in MLB History!

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...
This Kate Upton did a an old Hollywood themed photoshoot at the Beverly Hill Hotel for Harper’s Bazaar. Terry Richardson took the photos of Kate with cameos Aziz Ansari and Jared Leto. Unfortunately Harper’s Bazaar was unaware that the less clothes Kate Upton wears, the more people care. In one pic the voluptuous Kate is wearing a pantsuit. Oh Harper’s Bazaar, your sophistication...
Managing editor Dave Cameron makes his weekly appearance on FanGraphs Audio. Topics discussed: Philip Humber’s success, and Don Cooper’s role in it; the SI.com Power Rankings (fueled by FanGraphs WAR), the benefits and limitations of such an exercise; and the new site feature called FanGraphs Guts! and what it tells us about the majors’ current scoring levels.
This week had many great performances, and I was going to choose New York Yankees center fielder Curtis Granderson’s three home run game against the Minnesota Twins. Then, there was the Yankees nine-run comeback against the Red Sox on Saturday. However, Philip Humber gets the nod with his perfect game against the Seattle Mariners. 1
