The 2-0 slider to Rodriguez was one of the nastiest pitches I've ever seen. I thought for sure he'd go fastball, but he spun that baby up there and I knew he would finish it off when he got back into the count with that swing-and-miss.

At 230 when i realized what was happening - told my boss i had to go.
Made it to the stadium for the 9. Had no ticket. Told the usher i was season ticket holder and she HAD to let me in!
Watched standing from the third base side. Jumping up and down like a little kid the whole time
felix is the best and seattle rules!

I was listening to the post-game conference. I love the first question he got!
Reporter: "Felix, do you think you had a good game today?"

Atta boy Felix. You've deserved this for a long time.

Ha ha, loved sean rodriguez's comments:
Sean Rodriguez became the final out of Hernandez's masterpiece when he watched strike three go past.
"My whole approach was to look for a heater out over the plate, not try to do too much, just try and hit it back through the middle," Rodriguez said. "A basic hitting approach."
Rodriguez got ahead in the count, 2-0, and looked for a fastball.
"And as hard as he throws, I could easily hit one into the gap or over the wall," Rodriguez said.
Hernandez threw a slider. Rodriguez swung and missed. He then watched a curveball pass over home plate for strike two.
"I went back to basically looking for the heater [at that point]," Rodriguez said. "And the last pitch. Some would say it's a strike, some would say it's a ball. It's a great pitch on his part."
So basically Sean, you're hitting .206 with 6 home runs, essentially Justin Smoak with less than half the pop, but you could hit a Felix Hernandez fastball out of Safeco (or at least lace a screamer into the gap) AT WILL, and the final pitch of the game, that you stood and looked at was only a "subjective" strike and didn't actually count?
Real classy (and hilariously cocky).

The Angels board was poking fun at Sean Rodriguez being the last out. Those are some pretty weird comments to make. He sounds like a prick.

Also, the plate approach? Against Felix Hernandez, 26 outs and 11K's into a perfect game, your approach is to sit back and look for a fastball... What, a flat one out over the plate? Because he throws so many of those...
I bet Sean's approach to bear hunting is just to sit back and wait for a bear to run up, grab his gun, and blow its own brains out.

There was no way that any of those last three batters were even close to getting a hit. The two strikeouts the batters were so off balance that they were flailing at pitches and the one ball that was struck was a super slow grounder to short.
I have watched a lot of games but have never seen felix throwing with such snap and emotion. Even for him it was electric to see the ball come out of his hands with every ounce if his being.
Tampa never stood a chance.
