It seems like perfect games are becoming less and less special IMO......It's happening more and more the last few years.

Not to me, There's only been 3 Perfect games in White Sox history and I missed Buerhles. This is the first perfect game i've ever watched live! Great feeling!

Someone explain to me what happened on the last pitch. Did the hitter swing all the way through? Why wasn't that a ball?

Congrats to Humber and CWS fans!
I'm DONE doubting Jimmy Butler.

And you should be too.

It was a close call, it was a close call for an ump. And the rule is whenever there is a close call on check swing, it's supposed to be called a strike.

The call has got to go in favor of the pitcher there. I couldn't tell if he swung or not. I'm a Cardinals fan but I can always be appreciative of great pitching. Congrats to that guy. Seems like the Sox are throwing no hitters/perfect games every year, haha.

You will never see an ump not side with the pitcher here after what happened to Galarraga a few years ago.

He's a Sox pitcher?

Wow - I didnt know that until this moment.

I followed the Sox religiously until about 1970. Then i stopped following baseball. But I became a fan again of the Sox in 2005 - for about a year
