For some reason, the other day, out of nowhere, Google Webmaster Tools started showing all these errors while crawling my site, saying that it couldn't reach my pages. I checked my robots.txt and talked to my hosting provider and everything checks out, so I'm not sure what's wrong.

Can you post the error displayed by google? – Marcel Apr 26 '13 at 9:09
Is your page still found when you google it? Does clicking on the Google list items bring you to your site? – Marcel Apr 26 '13 at 9:10

I'm seeing the same issue across multiple dedicated servers in different datacenters.

Matt Cutts posted on his blog that this looks like a Google issue. I wouldn't freak out unless it continues for another couple days.
