Found this article on another forum I visit. Didn't see it posted anywhere else around here. Good to see he's getting some headlines for something other than the blown perfect game.

Pretty tasteless for people on Twitter to say that, "Looks like Joyce finally made up for his blown call". Yep, totally the same thing people. Good analogy. /sarcasm

Showing my lack of AL knowledge here...I can't remember the name of the White Sox pitcher who threw a perfect game this year.

But I will always remember Jim Joyce and Armando Gallaraga.

Good for him.

Just FTR, the name you seek is Philip Humber (http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/h/humbeph01.shtml). Here's (http://www.baseball-reference.com/boxes/SEA/SEA201204210.shtml) his perfect game.

Good analogy. /sarcasmI thought he handled himself admirably in the 'almost perfect game' too. He's always been a class act and always will be. I feel sorry for people who don't get it.
