Isn't Nolan Ryan about to quit?

The Brewers pitchers have had some pretty awful command, lots of pitches right down the middle. For whatever reason they always struggle against the Rockies even at home. I cringe every time they face the Rockies or Cardinals because I know the series will just be ugly.

Stop scoring rangers, let Darvish finish the game.

This ruins my chances of trading for Darvish. Thanks a lot Houston.

I really hate that they left him in on his 1st game just to get some silly personal award like a no hitter. I was really happy that he blew it because I'm a cranky old man. His reaction to giving up the hit was priceless and made me an instant Darvish fan, wish he had finished it off now~.

An out away and the perfecto is spoiled. That has got to be tough to handle...
