The Daily Show host Jon Stewart and his family were in attendance at Citi Field during Friday night's New York Mets game when Johan Santana pitched the first no-hitter in franchise history.

Stewart mentioned that his children "really appreciated a night of hot dogs, ice cream, popcorn, more ice cream and then being robustly shaken" during the excitement of the postgame celebration. That's something they'll always remember.

Santana's future in fate's hands

Every once in a while you run across a landmark moment in a baseball season, so compelling it becomes larger than life and, yes, even larger than an in-your-grill tabloid headline. It'd be one thing to obsess over this weekend's Subway Series -- the Yankees and Mets are the Saudi Arabia of rivalries, an endless resource -- but the most important story will occur Friday night...

Mets' Santana to make next start at Yankee Stadium

Mets ace Johan Santana will get two extra days of rest after his no-hitter. The team says Santana will make his next start Friday night at Yankee Stadium in the opener of the Subway Series. Santana threw a career-high 134 pitches Friday night against St. Louis in the first no-hitter in team history. The Mets have been trying to get Santana additional rest this year after he missed...

Stop it, Yankee fans -- Johan Santana did pitch a no-hitter, not a one-hitter

Squawker Jon and I will be at the first game of the Subway Series on Friday. It also happens to be Johan Santana's first start after his no-hitter, so we will see if he will emulate Johnny Vander Meer and pitch two no-hitters in a row. Not very likely -- Terry Collins would have to be tied with duct tape to a pole in the dugout, the way Pedro Martinez was a few years ago, to...

Jon Stewart Experiences Mets No-Hitter Nirvana

If you haven’t seen comedian Jon Stewart’s reaction to Johan Santana’s no-hitter, I think you’re going to love this video… The Daily Show with Jon Stewart Stewart is a life-long suffering Mets fan just like many of us and he does an outstanding job of sharing his reaction which I’m sure was very similar to many of our own reactions. I’m still on a high from that night…

Mets Fan In Gary Carter Jersey Who Joined Johan Santana Celebration Arrested

Kudos to Mets fan Rafael Diaz. If you’re going to get arrested for running onto a field, make it a once-in-a-lifetime moment. Don’t just run onto a field during the 5th inning of a Tigers-Yankees game. Wait until Johan Santana throws the first no-hitter* in Mets’ history. Not only to you get to slap asses with R.A. Dickey & teammates, you also get a moneyshot on the front...

Forced to choose, who you got: Dickey or Wang?

3 Up & 3 Down: All About The Pitching Edition

The New York Mets wind up taking 3 of the 4 games against the St. Louis Cardinals, losing the finale on Monday afternoon. Since I work fulltime, it’s very hard for me to catch weekday games, but it’s really of no consequence, because this edition of 3&3 is all about some great weekend pitching by the Mets. 3 Up: Oh, What A Night: Friday night Johan Santana made Mets history...

This Week in Fantasy Baseball: Week 9

Johan Santana became the first Met pitcher to throw a no-hitter in the 50 history of the New York franchise. Santana fanned eight Cardinals in the contest, including a strikeout of Cardinal third baseman David Freese to end the game. The lefty change up specialist struck out eight Cardinals over nine clean innings, while throwing a career high 134 pitches. The magic in Los Angeles...

The New York Mets Finally Have A No-Hitter: A History of Holding My Breath

Where were you when the world stopped turning? A pitcher from the New York Mets actually pitched a no-hitter. That’s right. We can all stop holding our breath. (I was. Weren’t you?) After 8,019 games, the second longest active drought in baseball came to an end yesterday. The longest drought in baseball obviously still belongs to my favorite punching bag, the Chicago Cubs. How’s...

MLB Power Rankings

Player of the Week? Johan Santana. We’re past the Memorial Day pole and into the Dog Days of Summer. There are so many tight races right now in baseball that it is nearly impossible to determine who is going to make the playoffs and who will be left at home. With inter-league baseball coming back this weekend, its time to start getting the awkward “Is Albert...

The Weekend That Was: Pitching, Pitching, Pitching

The Mets’ ability to remain as competitive as they have been through the first trimester of the season has been one of the biggest surprises in the Majors. All along, they’d been buoyed by the unsustainable hitting of David Wright, and their awful bullpen had somehow not come back to haunt them as much as it should have. However, it now seems they have found their strength. For...
