A perfect game is the pinnacle of baseball. A no-hitter is close, but not quite the same feeling as being perfect.

After suggesting Shelby Miller on Sunday for DFS and watching him come oh so close to a no-hitter, I wanted to look at the history of the pitcher and have found that there has been 23 Perfect games in all of the history of baseball. Some of these players you've probably heard of, but the majority of these players are relatively unknown to the casual fan. Without further ado, here is the list of all 23 pitchers.
23.) Lee Richmond- June 12th, 1880
He was the first pitcher ever to record a perfect game. He was on the Worchester Ruby Legs (some of these names absoutely kill me) and was a man among men. In 1880, Richmond was a 23 year old starter who started 66 games out of 83! That's absolutely insane and players back then never seemed to get hurt. Tommy John surgery is running rampant right now and these players start maybe 30 games a season, he started 66 and ended the 1880 season pitching in 74 games. These players back then were truly workhorses and absolutely studs.
22. Monte Ward- June 17th, 1880
Just 5 days after Lee Richmond managed this perfect game feat, Monte Ward accomplished it while pitching for the Providence Grays. Back then, pitchers would hit and there was not wussy Designated Hitter spot. Ward would go on to play 17 years in Major League Baseball and would accrue a 1.93 ERA in 5 seasons of pitching with the Grays. He only hit .246 as a batter but he was known more for his pitching anyways.

MLB Matchups for 5/13/15:


Highlighted Top-Plays:

Francisco Liriano vs. Philadelphia Phillies
Liriano comes into this match up with a 1-2 record but he has 44 strikeouts in 6 starts this season. HE has 2.79 ERA and gets a great matchup against the free-swinging Phillies. Liriano has faced 69 batters and has struck out 31 of them while only giving up 9 hits. He should be a popular choice Wednesday but I think a must-own player for cash games.
Chris Davis vs. Aaron Sanchez
Yes, he can always strike out 4 times in a game, but he can also go off for 3 home runs. Davis has seen Toronto Blue Jays’ starter Aaron Sanchez 4 times and clearly sees the ball well as he has two walks and two home runs against him. I could easily see him hitting one home run if not two on Wednesday evening.
Robinson Cano vs. James Shields
He’s faced him a ton since they both came up in the AL East. Cano has been playing some bad offensive baseball and his salary on most DFS sites reflect that. I think it’s about that time that Cano turns his luck around. Lifetime against Shields, Cano has 34 hits in 84 at bats with 9 doubles, two triples, and 4 HRs. A lifetime .405 average and a .438 OBP. I could see Cano also go Yard on Wednesday if not just have an all around great game fantasy-wise.
