Need I remind anybody that Eric Milton has pitched a no hitter, as have such great pitchers as Bud Smith and Jose Jiminez (both for the Cards).

Oh, thanks for the reminder... are you saying no hitters are easy to pitch??

that part is right

What if Bray and Majewski next year and for a few years, become bullpen anchors? Is it still horrible?


It is possible...


Short term, yes, this trade hasn't worked out.

Only that you don't have to be a good pitcher to throw one. Greg Maddux, Roger Clemens, and Steve Carlton have won a combined 1,012 games -- and 0 no hitters.

Ortiz just homers. He's having a pretty normal day I would say.

Miles singles to center to lead off the 9th

I am the ultimate jinx. I just turned on the tv to see if I could find the game. The first pitch I see? you guess it. Sorry Ramon...

my guess is a good pitcher like maddux or clemons or carlton would have got miles out

He gave up a hit to a horrible hitter like Miles?!? Will we ever see another no-hitter?

And yet some pitchers who never amounted to anything have also thrown one. To me that says there isn't really a strong correlation between throwing a no hitter and being a good pitcher. It is (would have been) a great accomplishment for Oritz, but he's still the same pitcher with an ERA over 5.00 and a WHIP over 1.50 despite one of the most pitcher friendly parks in baseball.
