CSN's Bill Melton gives his take on Philip Humber's perfect game against the Mariners on Saturday - 4/21
Our White Sox analyst bill Melton thought it was gonna get the day off not so build this was unbelievable. He had great stuff in his first start of the season just a few days ago but this was really -- dominating stuff from Philip Humber. Our receivers are sort victory in a group overthrew a ball that because I don't I don't -- placing. When you're I'm about to go out in a magnitude no involvement. -- Game. -- would get on really every player in order was an error or walk. And then go to soccer you're virtually an overnight sending you know you're really good stuff from blue shirt. The puck through that he's under because -- That's an accomplishment for a moment like this supporting one times. I've been rather fortunate -- let them back here and it was all go to the hour drive all the local everyone I've played well under those remarks were a result for the game. And that sort of all of over the course of the game and you know I don't care who your fight with strip poker game that you know that was dominating just -- Mark -- was dominated good -- so that would be if the ball really hard. I've been government gave up four ground balls go to the typical. I don't remember a little faster at the beginning it was up those particular forcefully much we we talk about it. -- that it doesn't really quick and lest he break the long. It was you know it was good would've thought but he's got to go out furcal then what they're obviously all for strikes. You have really -- -- know -- You mentioned -- just a couple of ground balls and that came just five ground outs in this game for number so they barely touched the ball against him. That's what you've always absolutely a couple of ball almost or are the real pretty routine. All the low line drive there and the other -- clean -- -- -- result you know which also awarded. Aren't there when you all the talk about what part -- all the game. -- mean you got a lot of good stop and let you know together what they needed didn't retire employees needed that was pretty. What was your relax and were dominating. Struggle but through. Saunders or when you got -- in the cup and the I Morgan his mind he knew we had a perfect game is soft sort of about -- saw. Mark brotherhood and just not there have been cheating everybody but. Just thought -- sure that you -- proportion -- -- What happened calling for a while now we're you know all of -- we're gonna fall through like let's throw. I would approach the game like that I pick -- wanna start all the talk all about. Gotta go with the full name now you know this guy that we can what he can make a movie about this he was. The number three pick in the 2004 draft to the Mets and he's had Tommy John surgery that the White Sox picked him up off the waiver wires last year. And all the sudden he's looked really good. And now he has a piece of baseball history that you'll never forget. We've got a big piece -- -- go to -- and sort about the fact there was an out of national audience I'm not sure what game reward but -- an opportunity for her a lot of people on the corporate. A guarantee I don't know what the result -- when you start talking no bitterness of the new things people from all it was a pleasure just flipping. Almost -- whether you like it seems that a player not. And I think that's pretty special for the announcers are working on the game. My third -- us who lead -- I -- it's going to be exciting for everybody that you really want to something. And that's where it's been very unique and I saw him interviewed a little bit and I used to -- -- -- -- -- -- throw a hook and like. I don't know how would you agree I mean there was no walk. That's just you know that's how I was looked to -- -- -- -- podium again. Congratulations. Paul Murton. I think of studio when my diplomatic sought to most of the White Sox fans were -- some. Exposure all the factors we understand -- almost got those what do you look to. He loves big piece of this AJ Pierzynski gotta you gotta throw down there of the drop third strike but he did not catch the perfect game for -- Yeah you know you go about your book if you're going to -- up the gut behind slick as we thought well Ramon Castro out here. And they were good all over it it was lucky because -- was -- one day off. And -- really know what to do these -- characters that important those games than anybody. You don't usually do that but not good enough there. Talked to him about anything you know just get the ball forward. Keep -- -- displaced an important game not stopping any kind of a small not worried about who should. And often -- and so you what religion you go yeah. He didn't shut up forward and -- awful production -- Well that's not a good called named -- got behind the plate and the -- and wanna do that now you know them nasty breaking ball. That ride him actually struck stronger and you know everybody understood you know part of a call like sort of local playing not -- Eric. By the umpires. You'll look back to look at under the bus with a -- is gonna -- the advantage. Not so Matt Ryan. -- -- -- of that -- went into -- but that's where did you just jump wanted to not to make that thrown out of what player's eyes a little -- -- -- -- so like what's. So what he wanted baseball history three of them belong to the White Sox -- Charles Robertson in 1942 he had burly. In 2000 night can you compare the pitching styles of -- number are they similar at all. A cluster of thought about trot on the sort of but I don't come out next but I didn't see him throw it would reduce it borrowers. But get there you know what they're more or more -- doesn't look what location. We're so what were you watch -- -- you got to really. -- you nasty football -- sport in. Smaller worked out -- -- across well and I think what you ball waters all of you know mark you just what the mall so people operators like Kirk. And that is cut fastball. Or Philip Humber -- such luck for them to look like you brought cobalt. A lot like yeah that would sort of Q what level that work the ball -- about what sort almost. Usually I can if you look at Jake Peavy now he's sort. Quick a quick U ball but I think I put forth on both. All -- the category of you know nasty split the ball so the stuff like. Not so much so much about -- -- Florida doesn't it also let them come when you watch that unfortunately I'm not through that. You see a political -- mark Julio Mora book I want you to work and that's what I don't think mark will be just think he's a very good. Maybe it was -- to -- so close to the plate that's what Oklahoma biblical homework in your job or scenario. Pretty nasty you are -- -- most -- hander.
