So ends The Curse of Nolan Ryan.

The box score (scores.espn.go.com)

Pitchers who had thrown no-hitters after leaving the Mets:


Nolan Ryan
Jim Bibby
Tom Seaver
Mike Scott
Dwight Gooden
David Cone
Hideo Nomo
Phillip Humber


Think I got them all.

This was a long time coming. Glad that I lived long enough to see it. Well done Johan!

Johan Santana is the best story in Baseball. He is coming off surgery that no pitcher has really been able to come back from and have any success and Johan is not only back, but he's back and has been one of the best pitchers in the game. This is one of the best nights in Franchise History.

How bad was the blown fair/foul call? Listening to Uecker talk about it late in the Brewer game, sounds like this was no no-no.

Let's just say that, if MLB used instant replay, this thread would be about yet another Mets one-hitter.

Well, Johan would never have pitched the ninth if the no-no weren't active, but I know what you mean. B^)

It should be said, though, that while the replay pretty definitively showed the ball to be fair, it was close. Without the replay, it wasn't an egregious mistake.

Look, I'll take it anyway I can get it. We have waited for so long for a no-hitter, we'll happily pretend that ball never hit the foul line.

It's great that Santana got the no-no because everyone I talked to agrees that he earned it making a great comeback from a career-threatening injury and has been a total class act for the team, even though they've cost him many wins with poor offense. If anyone deserved it, it's Johan. Though to be honest, I thought if anyone had a shot at getting the first one, it would had been R.A. Dickey. Shows what I know.

Johan's untradeable contract suddenly seems tradeable. The Mets are playing out of their minds right now, and it is nice to have a legit Ace, but I think they should move him if the right deal comes around.

I disagree with the second wild card in play you gotta go for it and besides nobody can really take on the contract and you won't get much value. You aren't getting a Zack Wheeler type prospect for him. I say continue riding Wright, Dickey and Santana and hope Niese and Ike start playing to their potential.

1. As much as I would like the best pitchers to be out there, and I agree that Moose and Pedro might just be in the top five or so, you can't knock Halladay being in there.
