New York Mets No-Hit Once Again

The list is filed with a who's who, and a not so
who's who of pitchers that went on to both fame
and infamy after they left the NY Metropolitans
for other teams, but whether or not they became
Hall of Famers or not, they all have ONE thing
in common, they threw no-hitters for someone
other than the New York Mets, but they were
originally with The Mets.

Yesterday it happened again. Philip Humber
threw a perfect game, which though much better
than a no hitter, is still at the very least a
no hitter, and with that went on to join a list
that includes: Nolan Ryan, Nolan Ryan, Nolan
Ryan, Nolan Ryan, Nolan Ryan, Nolan Ryan, Nolan
Ryan, Tom Seaver, Mike Scott, Dwight Gooden,
David Cone, and yesterday Philip Humber.
This can certainly make Mets fans feel pretty
bad, then you can add to that the fact that the
Mets have as an organization themselves been no
hit six times by other pitchers as well, and
well it hurts, It really hurts.

Fifty years and counting. They should not be
considered an expansion team anymore. They have
been around half as long as most teams in the
majors today, and longer than about a half dozen
more. They're day may come, but as a Mets fan
I'm not holding my breathe any longer.
