Yeah, what a feat. Didn't he get screwed out of a perfect game a couple of years ago, or was it a no-no?

Nice job Big Unit!

You dont see a perfect game every day, only the 7th one in National League history. I watched the last few innings, Randy's control was awesome. He only allowed one batter to reach a 3 ball count, thats incredible.

Great pitching and a fantastic feat as everyone say's considering his age. How much longer will he pitch for?

I was trying to put Randy Johnson's perfect game in perspective when I remembered a quote from Jerry Seinfeld:

"You can't over dry. The same reason you can't over wet. See once something is wet, it's wet. Same thing with death. Like once you die, you're dead, right?
Let's say you drop dead and I shoot you. You're not going to die again, because you're already dead. You can't over die. You can't over dry."

So is the perfect game like wetness? If you're perfect, are you just perfect, or are there degrees of perfection? Can you be over perfect? Can you be under perfect? Finally, the answer hit me like a 98 mile-an-hour fastball: Randy Johnson had pitched an under perfect game.

That's right, the Big Unit's perfect game against Atlanta was below par. Johnson recorded twenty-seven outs in a row on Tuesday night, but two of those outs came against pitcher Mike Hampton. Hampton might be the most competent hitting pitcher in the game today, but he's no pro at the plate. In 1998, David Wells achieved legitimate perfection against the Twins by retiring 27 consecutive hitters. Point being, either AL perfection is over perfect and NL perfection is perfect, or AL perfection is perfect and NL perfection is under perfect. Take your pick.

a perfect game is a perfect game no matter what, you have achieved something that only a few pitchers can say i have done this.

You can name basically all the players that have done this, but at 40 its un heard of jsut about. To throw a 98 mph at the last out. thats a great feat.

So, I tkae it you are a fan of the AL, dean? Or do you just hold something against the NL? Orr, is being perfect not perfect enough? what about dry perfection, or perfect wetness?

Just have a beer!

Arizona Diamondbacks starting pitcher Randy Johnson was named the National League Player of the Week on Monday after throwing a perfect game against the Braves.

Johnson also won his other start last week, pitching a total of 16 innings with 18 strikeouts. The big lefthander allowed just four hits and walked one in two starts.
