Former Met Philip Humber threw the 21st perfect game in MLB history today for the White Sox against the Mariners in Seattle. Humber was drafted by the Mets in 2004 and traded to the Twins in 2008 as part of the Johan Santana deal.
Add Humber to the list of fomer Mets that threw a no-hitter, or perfect game in this case, once they left the Mets. It drives me crazy every time I hear about another for Met throwing a no-hitter as the Mets come up on 9,000 games without one.
Congratulations to Humber and here’s to hoping someone on the 2012 roster can finally break the streak and leave the Padres as the only team without a no-hitter in team history.
