the first no hitter

Postby WyldStallyn » Thu Apr 24, 2008 1:15 pm

nearly every season theres a no hitter or 2 or 3. who do you all think will be the first (or only) pitcher to do it this year?

my prediction, the obvious one:
Jake Peavy against the giants at Petco

The way Felix has pitched so far I wouldn't be surprised if he threw one this year.

Good call, I could see it. He might have to get up to about 130 pitches to do it though... we all know how Dusty likes to be cautious with those young pitchers ;-7 .

Franklin Morales.... 0 hits 20 er's 25bb's

Seriously though its gonna be Cole Hamels. In fact he already threw one but paid the media and all the fans to cover it up as he felt bad for the opposing team.
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

I'll go out on a limb and say Scott Kazmir shortly after the ASB.

Everybody is going to pick the Giants as victims :-D
If they have Bocock and Burriss in the same line-up that might be very soon ;-D
I'd like to chuck Minnesota and San Diego in there as well, they're not that amazing.

If I was forced to pick, I'd say either:

Santana vs San Diego in August or
Gallardo vs San Fran in July.

I had a dream. It will be John Danks this Saturday against the Orioles. I do not own him on any fantasy team so this isn't wishful thinking. Well, I do hate the O's so it will be cool when they get no-hit but really this is as close to a lock as there is. My last sports-related prediction dream was on September 6, 1993. I dreamt that Mark Whiten would hit 4 HRs in a game. He did so that very next day. B-)

What are you smoking? No one's ever hit 3 in one game!

you know, we could turn this into a bet. whoever predicts wrong has to take on the correct person's avatar or sig for a week. course if we do this we're all screwed cause Von Hayes had his prophetic dream 8-o

and 4 hr's in one game? thats just ludicrous. i could see 1, and maybe 2, but no more than that
