Every Out Of The Perfect Game

MLB.com can be kind of annoying when it comes to online video, but today, they’ve shown how great of an age we really live in – they’ve already spliced up all 27 outs of today’s perfect game into one video. And they made it embeddable. Enjoy.

    Man, I even get goosebumps watching THIS in about the 6th inning…

    The closest thing to a well hit ball was the one Thames ran down in the first… Otherwise, quite literally, unhittable…

    Note: That was NOT a routine scoop that Smoak made in the first… Fate finds a place for Smoak to contribute in a positive way this year.

    I am an American ex-pat living in Nanning, Guangxi, China. I am able to watch the games on MLB.com. I’ve followed baseball and the M’s avidly since seeing my first professional game at Sick’s Stadium in 1957. What a thrilling game! Perhaps the most dominate pitching performance in history striking out 8 of the last 12 batters. WOW!

    I’m watching the ROOT rebroadcast of the game right now. We’re at the top of the 9th – Felix is dealing!!

    Westside – I just did the same thing. It was worth the watch. My oh my!

    Man, I can’t get enough of watching this…

    So, what the heck is up with Safeco Field this year…?

    TWO perfect games…

    THREE no hitters in all… And we’re only 2/3 of the way through the season.

    That’s nuts… Six no hitters this year, half of which have occured at Safeco Field (and amazingly, only ONE was against our offense… *rim shot*)

    And the rarest of all baseball feats has happened TWICE in our home stadium this season (while only 27 times in the history of the game).

    On a statistics website this has to be crazy to ponder. Or is it too early after Felix’s feat to wonder about this?

    I love how you can already hear the King’s Court in the 2nd inning. Can’t wait until next Tuesday!

    As good the second time as the first! I’m sorry Ichiro missed it.

    Watching that video gets me pumped all over again! Felix is so fucking awesome!!!!!!!

    I really like the one where he throws a breaking ball and the hitter looks stupid!

    Could you please just repost this every Friday for the entire winter?

    I’m still in shock. Woke up asking myself if this really happened. It’s almost unbelievable how dominant he was.

    In “My Oh My,” the Mariners 1995 highlight video, Tino Martinez is quoted as saying that when Randy was pitching, the fielders knew they pretty much could take the night off. Twenty seven outs and 12 by strike out. And as someone else said, of the remaining 15, only two were really a problem. Amazing.

  14. Westside guy on August 16th, 2012 7:40 am

    That was seriously amazing. Wabbles is right – Felix controlled that game from the get-go. And in the 8th and 9th inning, he was like a shark smelling blood in the water… none of those Rays had a chance!

    It almost seemed like the only one who could stop Felix the last two innings was Felix himself, if he’d been unable to control his excitement – but we’ve already seen him master big situations time and time again. He went 2-0 on the last guy, then said “okay let’s end this” – and did.

    Man I am still smiling about this the next day!!

    I think the last couple of innings of a perfect game would require a lot more control of the nerves than a play-off game. And Felix was all business. Brilliant.

    If Felix doesn’t pitch a second perfect game in a row, I want to see him throw 21 stikeouts. If anyone could do it, it would be him. Set rediculous goal and achieve it. I know strikeouts don’t win games but to have a pitcher who threw a perfect game and struck out 21 would be even more amazing.

    After watching the 27 out recap … Dave Sims sure made some great calls yesterday. He was on his game, too.

    It might have been better if he had not made reference to “34 years and 119 games!” a couple times (since last year was all about celebrating Season #35) – but everyone gets overly excited, sometimes.

    Seriously, great job by Sims.

    Greater job by Felix. It was fun to see.

    Youtube has a great video of the Jackson Generals at batting practice — but the outfield jumbo video screen (since when have AA ballparks had giant video screens?) is showing the 9th inning of Felix’s game, and they all stop to watch and cheer.

  19. californiamariner on August 16th, 2012 7:09 pm

    The 27 out video is really cool. And thanks to MKT, that Jackson Generals video is awesome as well.

    Aaron Gleeman correctly identities the tweet of the day. The first comment is also a good one.
