Making his first Start since September 2010, Santana went 5 ip today allowing 2 hits, 0 er, 2 bb's, with 5 k's.

The big Mets news of the week is the signing of Jon Niese to a 5 year $25.5M deal with two team options that can raise the total of the deal to $46M. (http://espn.go.com/n...5-year-25m-deal)

What a difference Santana and Wright are making for them right now.

With the news that the Mets are trying to re-sign Wright, wonder what kind of contract he gets? There goes that (unlikely) option for the O's it looks like.

Congratulations to Johan Santana for throwing a no-hitter tonight against the Cards.

I can't believe that for one of the oldest franchises in MLB history, this was their first no-hitter.

They're really middle of the pack, aren't they? This is only their 51st season, tied with the Astros.

Either way, its still amazing that it took so long

My mistake. I figured that they were older than most of the other MLB teams.

Took them over 50 years, and 8,020 games. Oh, and since Beltran's liner landed on the foul line but was called foul, it wasn't even a no-hitter :P

Yes, it's true, bad miscall but if we put an asterisk on this(as some have suggested), I'd like to review every no-hitter and add the * as necessary.

No hitter, one hitter, same difference.

Great for Johan but he needs to buy the Ump that missed that call a nice dinner.

Well I hear Linda Ronstadt is looking for a guitar player.

I dunno, I no-hitter is kind of lackluster for me. It's an "eh, cool, I guess" moment.

And Harold Reynolds keeps his streak alive for saying at least one moronic thing per night. When discussing the Beltran ball that hit the foul line past 3B and was called foul, he says that it went over the bag so it doesn't matter whether it hit the line or not, it should have been fair. Hey Harold, don't you even know the freakin rules dude? If the ball hits before the bag and goes over the bag and lands in fair territory, it's fair. If the ball goes past the bag in the air, it HAS to land in fair territory to be ruled fair. He said it two times and neither of the other two guys corrected him. What a joke? He's entertaining only because he's a clown.

It shouldn't be asterisked, but it should be discussed and brought up until MLB does the right thing.

I lost my final respect for him as an analyst on the Hall-of-Fame show this year when he made the false, but oft-repeated, claim about Jack Morris "pitching-to-the-score". Peter Gammons, of all people, pointed out that it was an idea that had been disproved for a while. Yet later that night on the Hot Stove show, Reynolds said the exact same thing, and not a replay either.

Personal problems or not, I wish he had stayed at ESPN instead of sullying the otherwise mostly good analysis on MLB Network.

And don't get me started on Mitch Williams.

That was supposed to say "a no-hitter where you give up five walks".
