I had no idea he had been pitching that long.

Not familiar with the guy at all? Hopefully it's a case of a good thing happening to a guy that earned it.
 
2012-06-02 12:09:12 AM
Simulgreens?

/wha?
 
2012-06-02 12:09:51 AM
As opposed to the Twins' Johan Santana?
 
2012-06-02 12:10:27 AM
Santana must be like 150 years old and rock a mean guitar lick.
 
2012-06-02 12:10:49 AM
what was his pitch count all those years?
 
2012-06-02 12:14:11 AM
Oh, good, another thread for the chalkgate whiners.

He finally found a way to not get screwed over by the Mets bullpen.

Johan is an ace, about time he got a no-no.

He missed all of last season due to a shoulder injury. Needed surgery.

This was his 11th start since coming back. :-)
 
2012-06-02 12:24:15 AM
His no hitter was just like the ocean, under the moon.

It was about time, wasn't it? Considering some of the arms the Mets have had throwing for them over the years: Seaver, Koosman, Ryan, Matlack, Darling, just to mention a few, how did they manage to go 50+years before their first no hitter?

Rare event is rare.

/plus c'mon, they're the Mets. It's like they're a GURPS character with the cursed and weirdness magnet traits.
 
2012-06-02 12:38:26 AM
I thought the Mets went hitless all the time.
 
2012-06-02 12:38:32 AM
After the game, Santana put the catcher in a figure-four leglock.

And with the Mets' track record, pushing him to 130+ pitches this game will somehow f up the rest of his season.

How sad is it that this was my exact thought about 30 seconds after the final strike?

Having thrown a no-hitter, I watched the Johan Santana celebrate with his teammates.

/Dangling participles are fun
 
2012-06-02 12:53:16 AM
Only Tom Seaver had taken a no-hitter into the ninth inning for the Mets, losing bids in 1969, 1972 and 1975.
 
2012-06-02 12:54:08 AM
YAY!!! The Padres have another MLB record!!!

Wooooooot!!!

For all the chalk gate people, Umps giveth and Umps taketh away...remember that no-hitter that wasn't due to a blown call?

And if Collins had yanked him after 100 or 110 pitches because of a pitch count, where would the Mets play home games the rest of this season? Because they would have burned Citi Field to the ground.

expobill: Only Tom Seaver had taken a no-hitter into the ninth inning for the Mets, losing bids in 1969, 1972 and 1975.


I just checked the boxscore of the 1975 game, which was the only time before tonight a Mets no-hit bid made it to two outs in the ninth. It was a scoreless game on the road, so there was still more than one batter in Tom's way.

So this means the Cubs automatically win the World Series?

Actually, no, he doesn't. I guess you missed him being interviewed after the game. Nice try, though.

Not really. When asked about "the call" he said, when things are meant to happen, they're gonna happen, and one hit wouldn't have made a difference anyway

One hit makes a slight difference in a "no hitter".

Was watching the game, saw the look on his face and the stare he gave Adrian Johnson after the ball hit the line. Beltran was very respectful after the game, I am sure he was happy for Johan.

If they had kept Nolan Ryan, they'd have 8

I just caught the whole clip of that interview and at one point Beltran literally says "I thought it was a hit". That seems to be in disagreement in the actual result of the batted ball according to the third base umpire.

Look, good for Johan and the Mets and their fans but MLB umpires are terrible at what they do and act like children when this is pointed out to them.

You know, unless that is a play that is reviewable, it was close enough that it could go either way. the ball took a very weird out of play bounce on the line. If I were the ump I might have called it fair.
 
2012-06-02 05:18:56 AM
Some Mets fan went on the field and actually made it to the celebration mob at home plate after the final out:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j0tmDqrZ92s

Of course he was soon tacked by two security guards - which you can also see play out in the video behind the celebration.

I do not advocate fans jumping on the field. I always hope that whomever does so is punished within the fullest extent of the law. But whatever that fullest extent is, it's probably worth it to this guy.

Representative of the unwashed masses: You know, unless that is a play that is reviewable, it was close enough that it could go either way. the ball took a very weird out of play bounce on the line. If I were the ump I might have called it fair.


Congratulations-- you wouldn't have cocked it up.

But, just as a person isn't dead until she or he is officially declared dead, the only opinion that matters in this case is the ump's at the time of the play. So even though the ball, on replay, clearly hit the foul line beyond the bag, the ump called it a foul and that's the only fact that matters.

Anyway, this performance was a long time coming. I hope you Mets fans are sufficiently thrilled.
 
2012-06-02 06:41:39 AM
... and now that the Mets' season has peaked, it's time to settle in at the bottom of the NL East for the rest of the season.

I like Santana, and even if he got there with the help of a bad call, so what, it happens.

The Mets suck though. Yankees pitchers can throw no hitters with one hand lopped off at the wrist, and this is the Met's first?

The guy was more or less the best pitcher in baseball for about 5 years. Probably shouldn't admit that you don't know who he is.

Shame? Nah, I am happy for Johan too, he is on my fantasy team. You sound like a Mets fan. A defensive one. You could be a late sub at 2nd. I keed, he's on my team too.

I'm happy for Johan too. If the Twins weren't going to pay him what he was worth, I'm glad he could be a success for some other club that also sucks.

This. Collins' shouldn't second-guess himself over this one. Had the Mets gotten a no-hitter prior to this one, Santana would've been gone in the 7th or 8th.

Now, if Santana had been pitching a perfect game...different story.
