It’s been over a year since that unforgettable June day. Ask any Mets fan where they were on June 1st, 2012 and they can tell you. It is a moment that will go down in history: Johan Santana threw the first Mets no-hitter. Now, a year later, what impact does that no-hitter still have?
For the casual fan, it is a moment they will tell their kids and grandkids. It is a day that fans can remember vividly. For the diehard fan, it’s a sigh of relief. Finally the Mets have gotten a no hitter and are off the dreaded list of teams that don’t have one. It was taken as a symbol of progress.
The Mets haven’t been very good since their NLCS run back in 2006, so good moments are hard to come by. This is one of those bright spots during the dark times. Fans viewed this as the beginning of the sun being shinned on this franchise and that the good fortunes were just around the corner.

Really? Buyers? After going from the extremely high mountaintop of sweeping the Yankees to the deepest of valleys in being swept by the Marlins? After even Matt Harvey got roughed up by a gang with...

Den Dekker was scheduled to DH in a back-field game in Port St. Lucie, Fla., on Thursday before heavy rains altered the plan. The hope is that den Dekker can begin to swing in games Friday.
