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 (sixteen years ago) link

good job

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

Renteria really sucks.

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

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

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

Cain just dingered.

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

And has 6 no-hit innings.

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

Ponson wtf.

Jon Lester is pitching really well so far today.

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

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

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

they are often worse pitched than three or four hitters.

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

haha, fuck you :)

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 (sixteen years ago) link

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

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

Back when the game was played by MEN

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

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

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

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

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

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

Dr Morbius, Tuesday, 20 May 2008 16:17 (sixteen 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 (sixteen 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 (sixteen 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 (sixteen 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 (sixteen 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 (sixteen 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

Blanco carried another no-no into the 5th this time. Like 14 no hit innings before the streak came to an end

FRAUDULENT STEAKS (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Monday, 8 April 2024 00:41 (three months ago) link

Glasnow 10Ks, 1H, 0BBs through 5ip with 61 pitches

H.P, Wednesday, 10 April 2024 00:56 (three months ago) link

Roberts calls it as 14Ks, 1H, 0BBs, 7ip at 88 pitches. Woulda been cool to be irresponsible and let him go out and try break his strikeout record, but responsibility wins out

H.P, Wednesday, 10 April 2024 01:44 (three months ago) link

3hits sorry

H.P, Wednesday, 10 April 2024 01:44 (three months ago) link

Corbin Burnes hasn't flirted with a no-hitter but he has certainly given the Orioles exactly what they hoped to get from him.

Guayaquil (eephus!), Wednesday, 10 April 2024 01:44 (three months ago) link

Yeah it's been good to see him immediately contribute to the team

H.P, Wednesday, 10 April 2024 02:01 (three months ago) link

Hunter Brown in KC rn... do not jinx it...

citation needed (Steve Shasta), Thursday, 11 April 2024 18:37 (three months ago) link

Poor guy--they left him in there for 11 hits, a walk, and nine runs?! I know it's helpful for your starter to get out of the first inning, but hasn't anybody on the Astros seen On the Waterfront? "This ain't your night, kid..."

Roman Anthony gets on his horse (gyac), Wednesday, 17 April 2024 20:41 (three months ago) link

Not a no-hitter or a near one, but props to Albert Suarez, who has not pitched in the majors in more than six years and gave the Orioles 5 2/3 shutout innings today, 3 hits, no walks, 4 strikeouts.

Guayaquil (eephus!), Wednesday, 17 April 2024 22:21 (three months ago) link

xp ty! some research suggests that's good spin but not the toppity top. asked cuz his spin seemed noticeably faster on slo mo than other pitchers i've seen, but maybe that's an effect of how fast/slow the slo-mo is.

fingers crossed he doesn't end up in the pulled pork thread. he was clocking 100.

, Wednesday, 17 April 2024 23:57 (three months ago) link

Tanner Houck just threw a 94 pitch cgso with three hits and 9 Ks. Looked like a right handed Chris Sale. Game time: 1.49.

Roman Anthony gets on his horse (gyac), Thursday, 18 April 2024 01:06 (three months ago) link

Shortest nine-inning game since 2010.

clemenza, Thursday, 18 April 2024 04:04 (three months ago) link

zack wheeler is through seven but has already thrown 101 pitches

also it's against the white sox, so does it really count

mookieproof, Sunday, 21 April 2024 00:16 (three months ago) link

Jesus, that lineup: .170/.120/.235/.153/.157/.256/.208/.250/.161. Naturally, it was one of the two big-bat .250 guys who broke it up.

clemenza, Sunday, 21 April 2024 00:50 (three months ago) link

Tyler Glashow just went 8ip, 0er. The most impressive part was the Dodgers allowing a starter to hit triple digits IP. A thing of fables in the organisation recently, I forgot it was a physical possibility

H.P, Sunday, 21 April 2024 22:21 (three months ago) link

Max Fried with a 92-pitch Maddux against the Marlins, 29 batters faced, gametime 1:53. What a pleasure to watch.

Ippei's on a bummer now (WmC), Wednesday, 24 April 2024 01:17 (two months ago) link

8ip, 5K, 1BB, 0ER for Logan Webb. 19 consecutive scoreless innings pitched. Man is killing it

H.P, Wednesday, 24 April 2024 03:37 (two months ago) link

Watching of course

severino with a no hitter through 7

Michael F Gill, Tuesday, 30 April 2024 00:24 (two months ago) link

No hits in the Braves-Mariners game on either side through 6 -- Max Fried vs. Bryce Miller.

Ippei's on a bummer now (WmC), Tuesday, 30 April 2024 03:15 (two months ago) link

No no hitters today, but we got like the opposite of a no hitter, an event much rarer: The dodgers did not strike out once for their 27 outs today

H.P, Tuesday, 30 April 2024 07:09 (two months ago) link

two weeks pass...

Jays save their big bats for guys with ERAs over 5.00: Tyler Alexander through six (70 pitches).

clemenza, Saturday, 18 May 2024 00:58 (two months ago) link

Through 7--93 pitches, though.

clemenza, Saturday, 18 May 2024 01:18 (two months ago) link

Headed home to watch the last two innings (forgetting it was on Apple TV) but, five outs away, bloop single by Jansen and a HR from Groucho Marx. I would much rather have seen the perfect game, but I'll go back to hating the Rays and hoping the Jays come back.

clemenza, Saturday, 18 May 2024 01:33 (two months ago) link

They did not.

FRAUDULENT STEAKS (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Saturday, 18 May 2024 01:51 (two months ago) link

kyle bradish through six, but with 80 pitches

Gotta pull Bradish with 103. Can't risk it.

Guayaquil (eephus!), Sunday, 26 May 2024 21:46 (one month ago) link

And he's walked four guys, I don't think it's that likely he completes the no-hitter on his fourth trip through the order

Guayaquil (eephus!), Sunday, 26 May 2024 21:47 (one month ago) link

one month passes...

paul skenes through 7. he's already up around 100 pitches though.

Paul Skenes! Let him finish!

Roman Anthony gets on his horse (gyac), Thursday, 11 July 2024 19:58 (one week ago) link

The rare time I get to be the voice of rational caution; I'd take him out before he starts the 8th (see Marquee Match-Ups thread).

clemenza, Thursday, 11 July 2024 20:00 (one week ago) link

He’s on 99 pitches with two innings left and season high is 107. I think he could do it.

Roman Anthony gets on his horse (gyac), Thursday, 11 July 2024 20:06 (one week ago) link

Also, he was on 92 pitches before the seventh.

Roman Anthony gets on his horse (gyac), Thursday, 11 July 2024 20:06 (one week ago) link

YES!! HE IS GOING TO PITCH A NO HITTER!! EVERYONE COME LOOK!!!!!

frogbs, Thursday, 11 July 2024 20:20 (one week ago) link

That’s a shame, he was having a great season

Roman Anthony gets on his horse (gyac), Thursday, 11 July 2024 20:23 (one week ago) link

he'll be back soon :)

frogbs, Thursday, 11 July 2024 20:26 (one week ago) link

Skenes made quasi-history anyway:

In National League/American League history, Skenes and Nolan Ryan are the only two pitchers to have multiple starts of 6 or more innings with 11 or more strikeouts and zero hits in the same season. Ryan did it in 1973 and, it should be noted, he completed the no-hitter in both of those efforts.

clemenza, Thursday, 11 July 2024 21:51 (one week ago) link

Justin Steele has thrown seven shut out innings so far and is on pace for the complete game with just 70 pitches thrown

Roman Anthony gets on his horse (gyac), Friday, 12 July 2024 00:22 (one week ago) link

He threw a CG last week! That's just greedy
