The final word on no-hitters

Out of all the emails I received about the no-hitter story that has been on the MLB.com homepage today, I thought this one deserved to be shared here, with permission granted by the reader:

    So I guess that means the no-hitter Brandon Webb pitched opening day
against the Rockies on my 2k6 baseball game on my xbox 360 doesn’t
count…🙂

“8:31 was my favorite”

(8:31 reads: GO AWAY ARIELLE!! You’re bad luck.)

Haha. It’s my favorite too. As nice as I normally am to Yankees fans, I gotta stick it to them at some point.

I don’t believe in jinxes and just disproved it by writing about it a month ago and the milestone still occurring in spite of that…

The only issue would be if guys in a dugout start talking to a pitcher about how it feels having a no-hitter, as obviously you change your mindset if you think about such an event.

I haven’t had a chance to read the article, but I did see the headline. And I got to thinking that it seems like everytime a pitcher gets into the 5th with a no-no, I see that fact plugged the MLB.com. Such games are also talked about more freely by the broadcasters than they used to be.

You’re not supposed to talk about No-No’s in progress!

Could this be at least part of the explanation for the drought: the media is jinxing these games?

That guy is using the wrong pitcher… If you want a perfect game – perfect game! – just use Roy Halladay in MVP 04, or Tim Hudson. My man… remember when Mussina lost a perfect game with 2 outs in the ninth? I had the exact same thing happen to him in MVP, I was pissed.
