    Worst way to lose a no-hitter?

    Suppose you're an MLB pitcher. And you're in the 9th inning, two outs, and one guy stands between you and a no-no. What would be the LAST way you'd want to lose your no-no?

    HR that ties the game?

    A walk and then an HR that wins the game?

    How 'bout this: your catcher drops a pop foul that would have ended the game. On the next pitch, the batter gets a base knock.

    Other ideas?

    Having two strikes on the hitter and then he lines one off my nose. That would suck.

    Give up a lead-off HR to Johnny Lewis in the 11th to lose the game.

    I think the bloop single to someone like Eckstein in the 9th would make me break the most stuff in the clubhouse afterwards. I mean if Pujols gets you, hey that happens, if Eckstein or So Taguchi gets you that's tragic. Or how about losing it on a grounder in the 9th that Aurilia just couldn't get to on account that he's a statue.

    Two outs in the 9th, you look up at your wife in the stands to see her making out with some drunk fat guy that you recognize as her ex-boyfriend, who was on your rival team in the minors, and then not being able to concentrate and focus to get the last out, and end up walking a .287 OBP hitter like Tony Womack, only to give up a game losing HR to a player like Rich Aurilia batting in the lead off spot, and then see your wife and her ex-boyfriend give you the finger as you hang your head and walk off the field.

    That would be the worst.

    You're winning the game with a large lead, and somebody bunts for a hit.


    Or a ground ball that is bobbled (or a bad throw) but the official scorer rules it a hit instead of an error.

    I'd say losing it to a homer given up to a rookie relief pitcher that is only batting because no one is left to sub in. Its a very Long shot to happen but that would be the worse.
    There are 10 types of people in this world. Those that understand binary and those that don't.

    They wheeled a 3x4 steel safe into the clubhouse Sunday morning to store the players' valuables. It took four guys to lift it off a dolly and onto a table.

    Watching something drop in front of WMP or Griffey since their defensive range is well, you get the point...

    You're pitching for the Dayton Dragons. You get taken out with 2 outs in the ninth because you've reached your pitch limit of 75.

    Oh, that was last year...

    You're on the mound, eyeing the signs from the catcher when the opposing team's student section begins chanting "Veronica! Veronica!" along with your cell phone number.
