September 26, 2006 Looked good coming out of the pen last night. Hope he has overcome his injury and has a long and healthy career with the Mets (sucessful too!).
October 1, 2006 After he went down with arm problems, I never expected to hear from him again. He had a realy good year in the minors and two nice innings at Shea. Maybe he'll be a future starter after all, or a chip in a deal for someone else.
October 1, 2006 I was at Shea when he made his ML debut against the Nationals. I was shocked he pitched considering it had been almost a month since he was in a game and the arm problem.
April 10, 2011 Philip Humber memories will always revolve around the fact that not ALL Mets prospects we trade away we become stars. Sometimes Mets management does make a good call and "overhypes" just the right amount to get a deal like Johan Santana done. Carlos Gomez was not the linchpin in this trade - Humber's potential was. Now that you see him regarded as a "journeyman 28-year-old" in the sports sections after his victory for the White Sox (his third different team since being traded by the Mets btw) last night and that it is only good that he can pitch again till Peavy comes back....makes you think. The Mets could have missed on Santana and had this guy to watch and make us even more disappointed the last couple of years..
So Humber to me is like all the "can't miss" and "five-tool" players that the Mets hype up to the fans...but one of the few who we got someone else to believe in and be part of one of the biggest plus trades in Mets history.
April 21, 2012 Another Mets pitcher who throws a no-hitter for another team...and a perfect game, no less!
April 21, 2012 Yet ANOTHER ex-Met to throw a no-hitter / perfect game. His perfect game against Seattle today was a masterpiece.
April 21, 2012 Congrats to Philip Humber on throwing MLB's 21st perfect game in its history today! It sure hurts to see another former Met throw a no-hitter while in another uniform while we're still awaiting our first one ever! Hopefully one day soon! Congrats Philip from all the Mets fans.
April 22, 2012 There are a few things you can count on: Death, taxes, your own kind being the worst kind and a former Mets pitcher throwing a no-hitter or a perfect game for another team!! Philip Humber threw the 21st perfect game in MLB history on Saturday April 21, 2012 for the Chicago White Sox in a 4-0 victory over the Seattle Mariners!!! In the words of the legendary Homer Simpson, I say "D'OH" but I'm still hoping for the day when a Mets pitcher throws a no-hitter or a perfect game and IT WILL HAPPEN!!
