Felix Hernandez gave John Jaso a Rolex last night

Before Monday's Mariners-Athletics game, Seattle starting pitcher Felix Hernandez gave Oakland catcher John Jaso a gift: a brand new gold Rolex. What's the occasion? Well, the former Mariner Jaso was the catcher for Hernandez's perfect game in Seattle last summer. The back of the watch is inscribed with "8/15/12", the date of the perfect game.

Perhaps ironically, Jaso was the A's hitter who broke up Hernandez's perfect came on Monday, doubling in the fourth inning after Hernandez set down the first ten hitters in a row. That would be Jaso's one hit of the game, and one of three for the A's on the game in their 2-0 defeat to Seattle.
