    Former Astro Mike Lamb sends one to the warning track. 1 out.

    W00T!

    Sorry Fade! :p

    He's me keeper in the Fade league and I thought I was done after his guy through a complete game shutout. I now have one pitcher with a no hitter and one with a perfect game in the same season, and it's not even June! :eek:

    And there seems to have been several near no-hitters.

    Wasn't there also a no-hitter or 2?

    I guess the MLB's stricter Steroid policy is working nicely

    The 19th and 20th perfect games in a span of just a few weeks. Amazing.

    maybe, not sure how much of it is that. but a lot of teams are going back to emphasizing pitching/defense rather than a bunch of long ball hitters.

    Pitchers these days are putting up some monster stats....

    MLB lowered steroid testing on pitchers and raised it on hitters, decided to throw a curveball at all the fans.

    Jimenez was the other guy to throw a no-hitter this season.

    And I remember seeing at least a few near no-hitters.

    Halladay is amazing, I've seen him pitch numerous times, to me he's been the best pitcher in baseball for quite some time now.

    Congrats to him, he's actually getting some love now that he's left Can-a-da.

    I thought a no hitter and a perfect game were the same thing?

    perfect game means you dont walk or hit a batter. no one reaches base at all. a no hitter you can still walk or hit a batter that puts them on base.
