Perfect Game! Congrats!

Mark Buehrle, who threw a no-hitter in 2007, turned in a perfect game against the Rays on Thursday.

Buehrle nearly lost it twice late. Pat Burrell pulled a double about a foot foul with two outs in the eighth, and Gabe Kapler just missed a homer to lead off the ninth. DeWayne Wise had all day to catch up to Kapler's shot, and he made an excellent leaping grab, only to have the force from hitting the wall knock the ball from his glove, forcing him to grab it again with his barehand. Buehrle becomes the 24th pitcher in major league history with multiple no-hitters. Randy Johnson and Hideo Nomo were the only two to do it since Nolan Ryan retired. Jul. 23 - 4:11 pm et

It wasn't long ago Buehrle couldn't get a paper bag out and had an ERA of 5 something for an entire season. Everybody in Chicago including Windy wanted him traded for a sack of potatoes.

Great Job MB and Congrats!

Good for him. One of the few Sox a guy can root for. Just gets his job done quickly and efficiently. Something like 2hrs and 3 minutes.

Incredible Job by Buehrle setting an All time Major League record for consecutive batters retired at 45!

And Huge Props to the Classy Twins fans who gave him 2 standing ovations!

Go Twins!

I am late on this but congrats to Buehrle on his perfect game you don't see that too often and it was fun to watch.

To Windy-

Had to have been a joy in chi-town, they have had nothing else to cheer about until then.

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
