    Pick the first pitcher to throw a No Hitter in 2014

    There were some very well pitched games tonight, including Cueto, Jose Fernandez, Adam Wainwrigt, David Price etc. Name the player you think will throw this season's first No-No. The only rule is you can't pick someone already picked:

    I'll go with Jose Fernandez


    Side fact: There are about 15 active pitchers who have thrown no-hitters, only 3 have thrown more than 1. Homer Bailey, Justin Verlander and Mark Buerhle.

    I will take Adam Wainwright. He doesn't give up many hits and goes deep into games.

    I really don't know how you predict that because the no hitters I've witnessed--Maloney, Seaver, Browning, and Homer were totally unexpected. Never thought I was going to watch a no-no. I was fortunate enough to witness Tom Terrific's gem in person. One of the great episodes of my life. If I had to predict, I'd choose one of the typical suspects. And I'd be wrong.

    If Cingrani can keep his pitch count down, he has to be a candidate at some point in his career. His record for starts w/ <5 hits is nothing short of astounding.

    King Felix. Mariners lose 1-0 on a walk and an error in the OF.

    Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS

    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
