|Pitch classifications provided by the Gameday Algorithm and may be inaccurate. Pitch Type LWTS correspond to how many runs were likely to score on a particular pitch based on average run expectancy when each pitch was thrown and what happened as a result. Negative scores indicate more effective pitches. Time to Plate is the time, in seconds, that it takes an average pitch of this type to reach the plate. This is strongly correlated with velocity, but also factors in movement.|

Humber’s breaking stuff was F-I-L-T-H-Y G-O-O-D today!
Congratulations to Philip Humber. Congratulations to Don Cooper too. His pitchers have 2 perfect games in the last 3 years!
Humber only started throwing a slider last year after Coop taught him:
UPDATE: Here’s a video of all 27 outs:Vodpod videos no longer available.
Humber’s needed 96 pitches today. That’s the 7th smaller amount of pitches for a perfect game.
UPDATE #2: More perfect game stuff:
- James’ first look. James; second look.
- Phil Humber’s Career Profile by John Sickels.
- J.J. looks at the final at-bat of the game. So does BP’s Sam Miller.
- CSN’s Chris Kamka looks at all the White Sox perfect moments.
UPDATE #3: Even more perfect game stuff:
- Fangraphs’ Bradley Woodrum dissects Philip Humber’s wild perfect game. And Fangraphs’ Dave Cameron has a Pitch F/X dissection of Philip Humber’s new slider.
