    If there was ever a real life candidate for Southwest Airline commercial it would be Jim Joyce. He has to feel like getting away.

    Since topic was brought up...let's play what if.

    What if the runner was safe, but Joyce (or ump) called him out and gave the pitcher a perfect game?

    Agreed. I thought all parties dealt with it with 100% class, something you rarely have the privilege of seeing in today's sport's world.

    Definitely.

    If it had been Carlos Zambrano instead of Galarraga, we'd be eulogizing Mr. Joyce at this point.

    That may be the case - but it misses the point entirely. There are only a relative handful of pitchers who have EVER pitched a perfect game. So to be essentially robbed of the opportunity to join that club by a bad call, and to respond to that robbery with utter class - well, that is noteworthy. But it doesn't change the fact that he will never be included in the historic record of pitchers who've accomplished that rare feat. No 15 minutes of fame is going to change that. To suggest it will is pretty silly.

    Wasnt suggesting anything except that he is more famous for not throwing it than would be for throwing it Maybe some good will come of this and instant replay will be used in the future for cases like this.

    Even though this is more dramitic this is the second time an umpire has cost a pitcher a perfect game on the last batter it was in the 60s this guy had a 1-2 count on the final batter and the ump called 3 staright balls and the next guy singled to break up the no hitter

    Jim Joyce makes no mistakes; his errors are volitional and are the portals of discovery.
