Geez, it's a MLB team. If it was easy, wouldn't we see no-hitters all the time against teams like the Pads and Nats? Give him his due. If it weren't for a DLed RJ, we wouldn't have seen it.
The Padres are terrible.
I'm aware of this, compared to other MLB teams. However, by repeating over and over in a thread about his no-hitter just how terrible this offense is, it's downplaying the achievement, which is a big time achievement regardless of how bad the Padres are. If it weren't, we'd see a handful of no-hitters every year, taking advantage of these poor offenses. It happens, what, once, maybe twice a year? So I was merely pointing out that, despite the Padres offensive woes this season, they are an MLB club and any no-hitter in the bigs is a big deal.
