Johan Santana has thrown a NO HITTER.
I put the game on in the fourth inning, watching it develop, and I think I held my breath for the last two innings! I still remember Tom Seaver's one-hitter against the Cubs in 1969 - and I wondered if I'd ever see a Met throw a no hitter. And to close it out on a strike out, even more impressive!

Happy for these guys. Maybe the Mets will earn my fanship back this year after all.
What's 8020 games between friends? Holy Crap! I was beginning to think I would never see them do it.

It was great! A few minutes after it happened what came to mind is how much Bob Murphy would have loved to call this game. Howie and Gary had great calls.
A great day in Mets history for sure! Now if we can only win another world series!
It's never too late to join the RED Army! CAPS NATION!!!

I was watching "Hatfield and McCoys" Part 1 (great show) and during a commercial break did the sports scan, Yankees, NBA game and then what the heck, the Mets even though from earlier I knew they were winning big. Was about to go back to H&M when I suddenly realized that SOB was pitching a no-hitter!! No way I'm missing this!! I'm a die-hard Yankee fan but even I got nervous watching the final 3 outs!! Very very cool and considering how Santana has battled back from a career threatening injury it was even more impressive!! And this was his 2nd complete game shutout in a row!! Nice!!
BTw, and I missed this during the celebration, did you see the fan in the Carter jersey run onto the field and join the celebration!!?? Apparently the players didnt as he was swept up in their joy but oh boy security did and they dragged him out of the group and put a beatdown on him!! You can see it in the background!1 Pretty funny!!
Oh yeah, for you hockey fans Howie Rose did NOT scream "Met-teau, Met-teau Met-teau" at the end of the no-hitter on the radio!!
as a Mets fan for life this was a wonderful night !!! then RA Dickey shuts em out the next day !!!LETS GO METS !!!
The beehive hummm of the JT9D and GE CF680C2,the thunder of the JT8D-17,the rumble of the PW1830 and the high ,thin whine of the PW 545A are all music to my ears!
