Like Gavin Floyd against the Tigers today through 7.

Not that anything needs to be said about it HINT HINT.

David R., Saturday, 12 April 2008 18:49 (thirteen years ago) link

good job

deeznuts, Saturday, 12 April 2008 18:51 (thirteen years ago) link

Renteria really sucks.

David R., Saturday, 12 April 2008 18:53 (thirteen years ago) link

Ryan Dempster has been shockingly effective in his two starts. 13 IP, 4 hits, 4 BB, 2R (1 ER), 10 K. Kudos.

felicity, Saturday, 12 April 2008 19:26 (thirteen years ago) link

not really shocked cuz dempster showed #3-type stuff in relief last year, mixing in a lot of above avg pitches but nothing super-special; having him in the bp was kind of confounding to me. havent seen him yet this year but my guess is that he'll be a quality starter

deeznuts, Saturday, 12 April 2008 19:32 (thirteen years ago) link

Yeah the shock is from years of mis-having him as a closer.

felicity, Saturday, 12 April 2008 19:45 (thirteen years ago) link

edgar "i stretch a lot in the batters box" renteria provided half their offense!

Kyle Lo(h)se deserves a place here

bnw, Saturday, 12 April 2008 19:56 (thirteen years ago) link

Cain just dingered.

Leee, Saturday, 12 April 2008 21:28 (thirteen years ago) link

And has 6 no-hit innings.

Leee, Saturday, 12 April 2008 21:42 (thirteen years ago) link

it is now 6.2 3-hit innings.

can add Looper to the list of ex-closers doing wtf well as a starter.

LEE YOU'RE NOT SUPPOSED TO SAY ANYTHING WHICH IS THE POINT OF THE THREAD HINT HINT

David R., Sunday, 13 April 2008 03:11 (thirteen years ago) link

Off-topic but on-topic in the "taking thread title literally" sense: SCOTT OLSEN (!?!?!?)

Not surprising: Jair Mothjerrfjuckjing Jurrjens. What is surprising, though, is his 7.46 K/9.

Andy K, Monday, 21 April 2008 13:03 (twelve years ago) link

Yeah, after yesterday's start I grabbed him in the fantasy league. He looked good in an "I don't give a fuck about ANY of these chumps" way.

Rock Hardy, Monday, 21 April 2008 13:46 (twelve years ago) link

Ponson wtf.

Andy K, Thursday, 1 May 2008 22:15 (twelve years ago) link

every year there's always one or two dudes like this guy was in '00:

two weeks pass...

Jon Lester is pitching really well so far today.

omar little, Tuesday, 20 May 2008 01:37 (twelve years ago) link

Man I sure picked the right meaningless Royals game to go to. Never thought I'd see a no-hitter.

govern yourself accordingly, Tuesday, 20 May 2008 01:42 (twelve years ago) link

well they are often worse pitched than some one or two hit games.

chicago kevin, Tuesday, 20 May 2008 15:07 (twelve years ago) link

well, you know, it takes a tremendous amount of luck to achieve a one or two hitter.

j.q higgins, Tuesday, 20 May 2008 15:28 (twelve years ago) link

they are often worse pitched than three or four hitters.

chicago kevin, Tuesday, 20 May 2008 15:29 (twelve years ago) link

haha, fuck you :)

Dr Morbius, Tuesday, 20 May 2008 15:42 (twelve years ago) link

Dr Morbius, Tuesday, 20 May 2008 15:42 (twelve years ago) link

best pitched game i ever saw live was when pedro struck out 15 and lost. to tampa. completely wtf.

chicago kevin, Tuesday, 20 May 2008 15:52 (twelve years ago) link

excuse me, retrosheet.org tells me he struck out 17 and lost.

chicago kevin, Tuesday, 20 May 2008 15:58 (twelve years ago) link

PITCHING

Tampa Bay Devil Rays IP H R ER BB SO HR
Trachsel W(2-2) 9 3 0 0 3 11 0

Boston Red Sox IP H R ER BB SO HR
P. Martinez L(5-1) 9 6 1 1 1 17 0

chicago kevin, Tuesday, 20 May 2008 15:59 (twelve years ago) link

but Trachsel pitched better! HE GAVE UP HALF AS MANY HITS!

anyone see WGN rerun the 9th of Jim Maloney's no hitter vs the Cubs in '65, a few weeks ago during a rain delay? The guy walked TEN and threw something like 190 pitches!

Dr Morbius, Tuesday, 20 May 2008 16:04 (twelve years ago) link

Back when the game was played by MEN

Andy K, Tuesday, 20 May 2008 16:06 (twelve years ago) link

pretty sure while w/ montreal pedro threw 9 perfect innings & ended up losing

deeznuts, Tuesday, 20 May 2008 16:07 (twelve years ago) link

that's not too impressive, a lot of bad luck involved there.

chicago kevin, Tuesday, 20 May 2008 16:08 (twelve years ago) link

xp to Andy: MEN whose arms were dead at 31!

Dr Morbius, Tuesday, 20 May 2008 16:17 (twelve years ago) link

so what? all the hitters were either boozed up or hungover. EVEN PLAYING FIELD.

chicago kevin, Tuesday, 20 May 2008 16:23 (twelve years ago) link

Back then, you didn't know whether you'd HAVE your throwing arm the next day -- lost to the combine out on the back forty, or combat, or what have you. You just threw like hell, left everything out there on the mound.

Andy K, Wednesday, 21 May 2008 00:12 (twelve years ago) link

I once left my watch out on the mound, but that was not on purpose.

G00blar, Wednesday, 21 May 2008 00:25 (twelve years ago) link

daniel cabrera, the consecutive reigning AL walks champion, pitched his third game WITHOUT issuing a walk this season last night. his three-peat is in peril as he has now tumbled out of the top ten on the heels of his 8th straight quality start.

j.q higgins, Wednesday, 21 May 2008 13:06 (twelve years ago) link

Following Daver's stinging rebukes, I'd like to known if it's now OK to say that Lester pitched a NH.

Leee, Wednesday, 21 May 2008 21:29 (twelve years ago) link

Dana Eveland is pitching very nicely.

i saw andrew miller strike out 9 the other night, but i originally thought it was 13 or so, so i couldn't even imagine seeing 17

joe saunders is 8-1 w/ a 2.31 era right now

Such a rando dude to land a no hitter.

FRAUDULENT STEAKS (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Monday, 14 September 2020 04:07 (seven months ago) link

he's a decent pitcher but the brewers also just looked like total garbage yesterday. they made some really dumb defensive errors that led to runs scoring and i'm guessing that impacted their overall performance

na (NA), Monday, 14 September 2020 15:07 (seven months ago) link

six months pass...

The Brewers' Corbin Burnes & the Twins' José Berríos both haven't allowed a hit through 6 IP.

Only watched the last 6 outs but boy it was fun.

NL West teams are loving this new Arlington ballpark.

I know no-hitters are sorta dumb achievements but the way they unfold is pure narrative delight.

rodon through 7

Love Rodon and glad he is making a comeback. That slider was beautiful.

Van Horn Street, Thursday, 15 April 2021 02:30 (three days ago) link

every BIP is a heart attack with this defense ffs

, Thursday, 15 April 2021 02:31 (three days ago) link

I see the slider is still art.

Van Horn Street, Thursday, 15 April 2021 02:32 (three days ago) link

Francona put two lefty hitters into the game, such a sweetie
Rodon thru 8

francisF, Thursday, 15 April 2021 02:32 (three days ago) link

There was a season where Rodon had the second most valuable slider after Kershaw.

Van Horn Street, Thursday, 15 April 2021 02:35 (three days ago) link

holy crap @ Abreu getting to the bag there!

Really happy for Rodon.

At this pace we are going to have 30 no hitters this season.

Van Horn Street, Thursday, 15 April 2021 02:53 (three days ago) link

Congrats Rodon
now let's move the mound back ;)

francisF, Thursday, 15 April 2021 02:54 (three days ago) link

weird game, by my count 3 whiffs in the first 4 innings, 16 whiffs in the last 5

, Thursday, 15 April 2021 02:56 (three days ago) link

so happy for rodon; still pissed about what his coach at nc state did to him

mookieproof, Thursday, 15 April 2021 03:05 (three days ago) link

Could you fill a guy in?I haven’t heard about this.

FRAUDULENT STEAKS (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Thursday, 15 April 2021 04:00 (three days ago) link

basically they drove him into the ground for their own benefit, e.g. making him throw 134 pitches on short rest, from which his injury history may or may not stem

Jorge Lopez has struck out 8 in 4 no-hit innings, I know that's not that far but I'm not gonna have that many chances to say an Orioles starting pitcher is doing really well

Guayaquil (eephus!), Saturday, 17 April 2021 01:12 (yesterday) link

Sorry, that was my fault (still a pretty decent start and gave the Orioles a good chance to win

Guayaquil (eephus!), Saturday, 17 April 2021 02:12 (yesterday) link

Guayaquil (eephus!), Saturday, 17 April 2021 02:12 (yesterday) link

(it's fine

tbh)

mookieproof, Saturday, 17 April 2021 02:57 (yesterday) link

Because of a doubleheader, it’s only going to go 7 innings and thus can’t count as one. But through 5 Matz has only walked two.

Well... it wasn’t gonna be official anyways.

if it’s long enough to count as a game it’s long enough to count as a no-hitter imo

mookieproof, Saturday, 17 April 2021 21:05 (yesterday) link

i was going to, in the official record books in my mind.

if a pitcher throws 9 hitless innings and allows a hit in the 10th it’s not a no-hitter, so it follows that a complete-game 7-inning no-hitter IS a no-hitter
