I have never rooted for the Braves before, but wouldn't mind seeing them win it all. I have come to respect the player that Chipper Jones is, and would be nice to see him go out on top. Plus, I can go to a few playoff games. I am pumped to see the new Wildcard format, and see how it impacts the races and the Division series. There are a lot of teams still lined up for the playoffs with that in place and it could be real interesting down the stretch.
So we had another perfect game this year. There have only been 23 in all of MLB history, 3 this year alone. That makes six since 2009. Why so many? I don't know, and it doesn't bother me, it is still a feat that is special in baseball. A perfect game is still a no hitter. The difference in a no-no and perfection is just someone getting on by walk or error, so a lot of no hitters could have been perfect with just a small break. There have been 6 no hit games this year, and the modern record is 7, back in 1990, and 1991. Of those 14 no-no's in 90&91, only 1 was perfect. Either way, congrats Felix. Now I just need someone to do one at a game I am at.
