Well, in a small defense, I had just seen someone from ESPN on twitter spell it that way. But yeah, my bad.
I can't comment much on the game, since I was watching the 3 OT hockey game. And then put on the Giants/Marlins game on the ipad and then saw a tweet where someone mentioned the no-hitter going into the ninth so I switched over.
(figured starting a thread was enough without analysis. :>)
I only watched the live look in off of ESPN (and ESPN2) for the last two innnings, since I was also watching the hockey game and then just got on the net. Great finish to the game; those two fly balls in the ninth had me scared.
Also, it helps that I'm both an Angels fan and the guy who has Weaver in our W fantasy baseball league. Double score! Now if only the Caps had won, it would have been the perfect night.

Well, I can't say it's been a great Angels season so far. Albert Pujols has been a bust, the bullpen still blows (Sigh...I called that one!), and they're losing to dreck teams like the Royals and the Indians.
The no-hitter makes it all worth it. Awesome, awesome moment!

Mariners gave up one of their top pitching prospects and two other prospects for Lee. They are basically getting back the same value as they gave up - prospects who may or may not be good major leaguers.
