Matt Cain And Perfection | FanGraphs Baseball
Wendy Thurm on Matt Cain’s perfect game. El Lefty Malo – Covering Los Gigantes since 2003.
“Retiring 27 Houston Astros in a row on a cool night in a friendly yard doesn’t prove anything, except that a guy with a hammer for an arm and a deep, cool reservoir inside can make baseball history with a little luck and a little help from his fast friends.” Matt Cain is perfect « Bay City Ball – A Giants Blog
“We’ve heard all of those things, and yet, start after start, Matt Cain has always been a joy to watch. In the truest sense of the word, he’s become a pitcher. And a damned good one, too. And he’s our guy. He’s still our guy. And he’ll always be our guy.” Bay Area Sports Guy – A Perfect Game for Matt Cain
“What was it like to watch Cain’s perfect game in the stands? First, it’s humbling to know we just saw something only 19 other crowds have witnessed since 1900. Second, AT&T Park felt like 2010 again — strangers were high-fiving each other and, for the first time in over a year, the crowd rose to the occasion and became part of the action again.” 50 Awesome Things About Matt Cain’s Perfect Game – McCovey Chronicles
