As I tweeted, this game is the most excited I've been about baseball since October 08.

Very sad, very true.

But, I can't lie: it makes me a little pissed that the Cubs didn't get him.

Is it wrong that I got really pissed when AJ got a hit?

We probably would have traded Garza and gotten Turner and Castellanos and Olt and Theo's backbone out of the deal...

A shame that it got broken up with 2 outs.

It was my fault. That was, literally, the only pitch of the game I saw (DAMN YOU CABLE PROVIDER).

So my MLB iPhone, iPad, and Roku apps all froze just before Marwin was a bitch. I guess I'm less pissed now since the game isn't a legend but still frustrating when technology fails.

Recap and context by Cliff Corcoran at SI

"Darvish became just the 11th man in major league history to lose a perfect game with two outs in the ninth inning."

"(Cubs '72) Milt Pappas and (NY Giants 1908) Hooks Wiltse remain the only two men ever to lose a perfect game with two outs in the ninth but still complete the no-hitter."

(To "lose" his perfect game is not (necessarily) the same as his team losing the game in this context. Perhaps the wordier "lose out on a bid for a perfect game" would be less ambiguous?)

I remember back in 2006 (I think) Prior had a no-hitter going but Dusty pulled him in the middle innings because he was just returning from injury. I'm pretty sure the Cubs lost. Anybody remember this game?

It was a game against the Reds and I remember thinking that he might be hurt. He did have over 100 pitches in the 6th innings, so maybe Dusty might have cared a little.
