    I hope he gets it.... Pitch count isn't looking pretty though.

    There's no such thing as jinxs.

    They have a 5 run cushion. That's very lame.

    Unless Harang told him he had nothing left, I leave him in.

    121 pitches is a lot for the old man, especially when they need healthy pitchers.

    Unless your plans don't include pitching Harang in another start this season, it's a pretty easy choice to remove him.

    It's not like a no hitter is exceptionally rare. Often more random luck than complete domination.

    His arm doesn't explode after a certain number of pitches, especially if you take it easy on him the next start. Statistically yes, no hitters are not a big deal but I bet it would have been a huge deal to Harang which is all that matters. A guy that has had a great career with no postseason moments. It sure looked like it meant a lot to him when he got the k to end the 7th. He is a guy they got off the scrap heap a few weeks ago. The Braves win total probably doesn't change at all whether he makes another start or not. I would have given the veteran the choice.

    Are we sure he wasn't given the choice?

    By the talk Gonzalez had with him in the dugout I assume not.

    Or... you are in the 15th inning (or whatever) in a game at SD. You must win that one regular season game!

    JK. Back to discussing the decision to remove an older pitcher after 120+ pitches for a slim chance that he sets down 6 more guys with a tired arm. Nice job tonight AARON!

    It looked like he had another 50 or 60 pitches in him at least to me.

    Put it in perspective - it was only the 7th. He was at 121 pitches. Averaging a bit over 17 per inning. Even if he got the no-no and bettered his pitch count average - say another 25 pitches, that's 146 pitches. If he got the last 6 outs with what he averaged for a count to that point he'd have 155 pitches when the game ended. Had it been 8 innings I send him out for the ninth but not at 121 in 7 innings.

    They're saving those for extra innings in tomorrow night's game.
