Time for My Annual Baseball Post: Johan Santana’s No-Hitter Is First in Mets’ 51-Year History

I missed the game, darn it, but this compilation of all 27 of Johan Santana’s outs has given me a taste of the first Mets no-hitter.

If you care about the Mets, it’s well worth the 4-plus minutes it takes to watch.  Heck, if you care about baseball at all, it’s worth it.  I love how it starts out as a routine game and builds up into something where the announcers are first keeping quiet about the fact that Johan had not given up a hit… then the growing excitement, then the spectacular defensive plays to keep it going.  Then the celebration at the end.  Congrats, Johan… congrats, Mets fans everywhere
