They'll cut out of the football game when the 9th starts.

(insert the inevitable complaint about the way ESPN treated Mark's no-hitter here.)

Well, here's to hoping he gets it. I hate the Twins but as long as it's not Bonds pitching or Schilling you have to root for this. Let's go Scott! :gulp:

There goes the perfect game. The first pitch was a strike.

I thought the first pitch was a ball, but the second one was very very close.

Well, in the 8th, the umpire was calling that high strike, so that's why I thought it was.

Fair enough. I didn't see the ump's zone before the top of the 9th. I really thought he'd get that 1-0 call though.

Screw the no-no, we need Baker to win just so we can pick up a game on the Royals.

Eh, a baker no-hitter would be forgotten by tomorrow afternoon. No-hitters are only big deals if it's a big name pitcher, or a yankee-red sox pitcher, per espn. Not for the team fans, then it's a big deal, Viva Alvarez !

This is false. Anibal Sanchez last year? He's made a name for himself and may not ever do anything again.

That and it was nearly a perfect game. Those are rare no matter who the pitcher is.

The Royals are like the eternal spoilers. They ruin Jenks' bid for sole possession of the consecutive batters retired record, break up Baker's perfecto in the 9th, IIRC helped knock Cleveland out of the playoffs in '05, helped mess up our chances at the playoffs in '06, kept Detroit from winning the division last year, and I'm sure there's more. If they only played all their games against teams in high pressure situations maybe they'd be pretty good.

You just seem to take the most contrarian view on each and every topic (Sox or otherwise) and relish in it.

Don't confuse unpopular with contrarian. Or Contreras.

You should look up the definition of contrarian.

It is my understanding that taking a contrarian position on a subject means pretty much the same thing as taking the unpopular position. :redneck

That's only when something has 2 possibilities, ie. (the earth is round...no it's flat). There is probably an infinite amount of ways to look at a baseball game/team.

Good for him to take it as far as he did. The nerves really do get to you when you're up there, but to even get within three outs is a feat.
