I'm astounded that something like this can even happen.

Weaver, Arredondo hold Dodgers hitless, but Angels still lose


    LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Jered Weaver and Jose Arredondo combined to hold the Los Angeles Dodgers without a hit Saturday night -- and it still wasn't good enough for the Los Angeles Angels.

    The Dodgers became the fifth team in modern major league history to win a game in which they didn't get a hit, defeating the Angels 1-0. Weaver's error on a slow roller allowed the Dodgers to score an unearned run in the fifth.


The sad part of this is that this technically isn't a no-hitter for Weaver, since he got pulled for a pinch-hitter. But how many times in your life are you ever going to see a team win a game without getting a hit.

It's an awesome feat of futility!

It wouldn't have been a no-hitter for Weaver even if he didn't get lifted for the pinch hitter, as he would have only 8 no-hit innings. See Matt Young against Cleveland in 1992 for the Red Sox.

As sad as it was for Weaver, it's nowhere near as bad as what I saw in 1990 when Andy Hawkins had a no-hitter, only to lose 4-0 based on some terrible defense. I mean, to lose by one run by a error and good baserunning is one thing, but to pitch the greatest game of your career and get blown out by multiple runs due to several errors ( I think the Yanks had 4 that day) is just plain wrong.

Look at it this way...if Weaver/Arredondo had gotten the no-no, they would've been just another note in the history of no-nos. But now, they're the authors of one of just five losing no-hitters in history. Those are rarer than unassisted triple plays or perfect games!

I'm just stunned that nobody has no-hit the Blue Jays yet.



“How is it that I am a good actor? What I do is I... pretend to be the person I’m portraying. You’re confused. Case in point: in Lord of the Rings, Peter Jackson comes to me and says ‘I would like you to be Gandalf the Wizard,’ and I said ‘You are aware that I am not really a wizard?’ and Peter Jackson said ‘I would like you to use your acting skills to portray a wizard for the duration of the show.’ So I said ‘Okay’ and then I said to myself ‘Mmm.. How do I do that?’ And this is what I did: I imagined that I was a wizard, and then I pretended, and acted, in that way on the stage. How did I know what to say? The words were written down for me in a script. How did I know where to stand? People told me where to stand." -- Sir Ian McKellen, Extras

Not as stunned as I am over the fact that The Mets have never had a no-hitter in 46 years, despite having many great pitchers playing for long periods of time for them (Tom Seaver, Nolan Ryan, Doc Gooden, David Cone, Mike Scott, Pedro among others) who got their no-nos with other teams.

Pedro's falls into the category of those that don't count, as the Expos offense was inept of the night that he threw 9 perfect innings, and then gave up a hit in the 10th. Pre-Fay Vincent changing the rules, it would have counted as a no-hitter, much as combined, rain shortened and losses on the road where the team doesn't bat in the 9th would have counted, but instead now they have their own special designation.
I'm actually more surprised that Halladay hasn't been stuck with a no-hitter loss the way the Blue Jay offense has gone the past season and a half.

This may just prove that it is possible to jinx these things, because anytime a Met pitcher gets through the order once without giving up a hit, the announcers start tripping over themselves to mention that fact. (and, come to think of it, didn't one of the Post or Daily News writers GUARANTEE a no-no when Santana signed?)


When it finally does happen, it's going to be a spot starter or something, just wait.

If you're interested in making the most money, I'd pull out the best cards and have them graded by a company like PSA (www.psacard.com). They grade cards on a scale from 1 to 10. If the cards are in perfect condition, then you'll make a fortune.
