Which do you think was more impressive: 20K vs. Perfect Game

 

Which do you think was more impressive, a rookie throwing a 1 hitter with 20K (Kerry Wood) or today’s perfect game (Mark Buerhle)?

I am taking nothing away from what Mark Buerhle accomplished today.  He deserves all the praise and glory for what he did today, and I tip my hat to a classy individual.  Congrats to Mark Buerhle, and the White Sox who took over first place in the AL Central after today’s win.

Wood was a rookie, threw a one hitter (could have been an error and a no hitter).  Wood was 2-2 in his rookie season going into that game.  His game was a huge spark and every Cub fan today can tell you where they were when it happened.  Kid K was born that day, and became an icon in the fans hearts.

Buerhle a seasoned vet threw his second no hitter and first perfect game of his career.  Buerhle is in his 10th season and has a record of 132-90 heading into today.  Buerhle has become one of five pitchers in the history of baseball to throw a no hitter and a perfect game. 

Both pitched against a team with a good offensive line up.

I have to admit, one of the best parts of the game was how the Rays stood for Buerhle to show him the respect he deserved after beating them.  That is what baseball is all about and should be, compete and show due respect when someone does something special.
