Chris Sale almost perfect

A curious thing happened in baseball Sunday. Houston Astros pitcher Philip Humber was designated for assignment just a year removed from pitching the 21st perfect game in major league history. That's usually what happens when you get off to an 0-8 start with a 9.59 ERA. Later in the evening in Chicago, White Sox pitcher Chris Sale was close to a perfect game by retiring the first 19 Angels batters he faced; he finished with a one-hitter. It was a one-two punch of reminders about how the game has changed. Or has it? What do you make of the increase in perfect games the past five years? Will we see another one this season?

  • Philip Humber has been DFAed by the Astros after an 0-8, 9.59 ERA start. Will he ever pitch in the majors again?

  • There were eight perfect games from 1980 to 2008. There have been six in the past five years. How do you explain this?
