Its got to be perfect!

As many who know me from the Forums know at least, I’m a fan of baseball. Please, dont ask me why, I’ve no idea? Unless its because I played rounders when younger, and there is some similarity I guess? Though as far as I remember, pitches are a lot more gentle in rounders lol! Oh, and for my pain, and to make it worse, I’m a Seattle Mariners fan. Why, probably because its the first US city I fell in love with.

Most Americans already know, they arent going to win the World Series anytime soon. To be honest, they arent even likely to make the playoffs anytime soon either. So hey, when something good happens for the Mariners, I’m going to mention it. In all honesty, they probably have one star, a pitcher named Felix Hernandez, though to most Mariners fans, he’s just called King Felix. And this week, he threw what they call the perfect game, only the 23rd in Baseball history, and thats going back some time! Some might call it justice as the Mariners lost to a perfect game at home earlier this season. Oh, the victims of Felix, Tampa Bay.

No, I didnt see it until tonight, and then all I’ve seen is the most important 27 pitches, the one on the video here. I heard mention of the end of it, was watching  a game on ESPN America opposite it (Think it was Dodgers @ Giants?) and they picked up on it through the last couple of innings. Oh, and mlb.com helps too, with their gameday thing.

Alright, they are going to finish bottom of their division, almost certainly have a losing record and all that, but for one night, the Mariners hit the headlines. Well alright, you might say a 6 pitcher combo ‘no hitter’ earlier this season also made the highlights, but this is kind of special. Thanks Felix, for giving me a special moment

Yes, you’ve worked out the video lol

  1. Yes, a fine performance by King Felix. Isn’t it odd, though, how, in baseball, teams with some of the best individual performers get nowhere as teams?

  2. They are in a tough division, but all the same, agreed. Some teams seem to cope, but I suspect their salary levels are higher lol!
