Johan Santana has thrown the first no-hitter in New York Mets history. :cool:

1st no-hitter in New York Mets history. I always liked him, even with the Twinkies. Congrats to Johan :gulp:

51 years is all it took.

This is Santana's first, too, no?

It is, though he's had several near-misses over the years.

Now only the Padres remain without a no-hitter.

275th in MLB history. As mentioned, only the Padres now have never had a no-hitter thrown for them.

The White Sox have had 18.

He deserved it, and the Mets deserved it. To come close like Seaver did? That had to be an itch you couldn't quite scratch for Mets fans.

As much as I hated Johan as a Twin, he's a hell of a pitcher and definitely is a great player.

I'm glad he did this in a division other than the AL Central.

He looked nervous as hell during that 9th inning, but still got it done. I've never seen Johan look that human.

I'm shocked he didn't do it sooner. He was so damn good when he was with the Twins. His changeup was beyond unfair.

I was always worried he would no-hit us when he was in his prime with the Twins. It was amazing how bad our hitters would look when he was on the mound. Who would have guessed a guy like Liriano would do it but not Santana? Crazy game.

Congrats Johan! :gulp:

Congrats Johan! :gulp:Definitely. I am likely "misremembering" things, but I seem to remember a few 2 or 3 hit complete games where the likes of Pablo Ozuna had a few hits. Pablo is the only one I can remember consistently having decent at-bats against him.

Uh oh. Another umpiring **** up. It shouldn't have happened. (http://www.cbssports.com/mlb/blog/eye-on-baseball/19229899/the-no-hitter-that-wasnt) Beltran doubled in the 6th inning - called foul.

Also, I got a good LOL seeing the name of our old friend, the buffoon Dayn Perry on that article (which I found posted on another board). Clearly, he has reached the pinnacle of his profession as "baseball blogger" for CBSSportsline.com.:lol:

That camera isn't straight up the baseline, it's impossible to tell from that angle. It looks really close, though.

Oh, okay. In that case, yeah, it was a blown call. Obviously. Not a horribly blown call, but it does suck.

To be fair from a White Sox standpoint, you can make a case that Humber's perfect game shouldn't have happened as well.

Congrats Johan, glad you did this in the NL instead of the AL Central. He owned the White Sox when he was a Twin. Like literally owned the Sox, it was a guaranteed L ever time the Sox faced Santana.

Unless you are arguing the 27th hitter didn't go around (which replay showed he did), I can't remember any close calls. There was certainly nothing that was a clearly blown call like this.

Better a blown call to give a pitcher a no-no rather than to take one away (*cough* Armando Galarraga *cough*).

Really? I thought we were past all this crap the next day, when the camera angle and frame-by-frame shots clearly showed the barrel of the bat crossing the plate.

Here we have the unmistakable imprint of the ball visible in the chalk; this isn't even CLOSE to the same situation.

Ironically, Tom Seaver and Dwight Gooden, perhaps two of the best know Mets pitchers, threw no-hitters for other teams.

Anybody know what team has the most no-hitter since 1962?

Congrats to Santana. I also kept on rewinding and watching the fan run out and "celebrate" with the team. Couldn't believe that one LOL.

Roberto Clemente has an argument. Josh Hamilton might, too.

The guy's obviously a nut, but MAN what an awesome experience that must've been! It was really only the jean shorts that gave him away once he made it to the mound; maybe I'll dress in full uniform, cleats and all, and sit in the front row when it's time for the Sox to clinch the AL Central...

Hamilton was the number one pick, no?

He was the #1 overall pick in the June 1999 Draft but due to his substance abuse problems, he never really advanced in the Devil Rays' minor league organization so when he was eligible for the Rule V Draft in 2006, he was left unprotected by Tampa Bay, drafted by the Cubs and sold immediately to the Reds, where he made his MLB debut on Opening Day in 2007.

Interesting that in Cincinnati, he played with Dunn and Griffey. They'd be a different team if they kept him and brought up Bruce to pair with Votto.

There have been 132 from 1962 on (5 that year). If you include 1962, three franchises tie for the most with 10 each: Astros, Dodgers, and Angels (who have had two of the last 4). Angels and Dodgers had 1 each in 1962, so if we go strictly "since 1962," it's the Colt 45's/Astros, which is ironic since they were the team that came into the NL with the Mets in 1962.

Of the years, 1990 and 1991 had the most no-hitters with 7 each, while there were no no-hitters thrown in 1982, 1985, 1989, 2000, or 2005 (there have been 3 already in 2012).

Apparently he's now been banned for life from Citi Field:

I figured the Dodgers and Angels would be up there. Messers Koufax and Ryan jelped immensly for the teams' totals
