    Oh man! That's awesome!!

    I love Mark Buehrle. He's due to come back big-time this year.

    edit: Wow, he came within a walk of a perfect game, to Sosa of all people. That's got to be frustrating.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    White Sox fans are loving that. He was being written off many places.
    Rob Neyer: "Any writer who says he'd be a better manager than the worst manager is either 1) lying (i.e. 'using poetic license') or 2) patently delusional. Which isn't to say managers don't do stupid things that you or I wouldn't."

    There's something about a no-no that's exciting. Sometimes even for teams I despise. Congrats to Mark and boo to Sammy for ruining more baseball history.

    It occurs to me that I don't know the Redszone policy for alerting each other to potential no-hitters in progress, if there is one. Is there a secret code, a no jinx zone, a please jinx zone, or does someone just start a thread saying something like "Interesting game in Chicago, hint, hint"? I came across this one in the 8th and was afraid to do anything.

    If there is a precident, I don't know what it is. It's been too long since there's been a no-hitter.

    I don't have a problem with alerting RZ to a potential no-hitter. I actually go so far as to say I'd appreciate such a thread. Use some discretion of course, there's a big difference between a no-no through 4 and a no-no through 7.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    Re: Mark Buehrle pitches no hitter against Rangers

    The last White Sox pitcher to throw a no-no was Wilson Alvarez. I remember this because I have his no-hitter baseball card somewhere.

    Buehrle baffled the Rangers with an assortment of 86-mph fastballs. I'm shocked that he managed to strike out 8 batters.

    I might be wrong, but I think I read on the ESPN scroll that he faced the minimum of 27 batters, so Sosa was out on a DP or pick-off.
    Not this year...maybe a Wild Card

    Sosa was picked off.

    The Sox have had 16 no hitters. I don't believe the Mets have had 1.

    We should make a rule, no no hitter threads if it involves a Red doing it. Thats just begging for a jinx
