Buehrle = Perfect

Other Sox pitcher Mark Buehrle pitched a perfect game today, marking the 18th time in over a century of professional baseball that this feat has occurred. Buehrle benefited from superb defense, especially a catch by Dewayne Wise that robbed old friend Gabe Kapler of a home run. Best of all, the ChiSox opponent was the Tampa Bay Rays, #1 threat to the Red Sox's Wild Card spot.

Two years ago Buehrle was a talked-about trade target for Boston at the midseason deadline. Of course it never happened, and we all know how that season ended up. It would have been cool if Buehrle had pitched his perfect game in a Red Sox uniform. Unfortunately, knowing our porous defense, it probably would've been a 10-run rout for Tampa.
