It's Always Sunny in Detroit:
Not everything was kosher following Johan Santana’s no-hitter against the St. Louis Cardinals last night. According to NY Post columnist Joel Sherman, Mets rookie pitcher Elvin Ramirez apparently hurt himself diving into the pile-up following the last out.
Ramirez was just summoned to the Major Leagues before the game yesterday. The 25 year old has been in the Mets’ system since he was 18. With the 15+ day disabled list that is required, the right-handed reliever will have to wait a little longer to make his debut.
I place the blame solely on Santana here. If he hadn’t thrown the no-no, there would have been no celebration and thus no injury.

Santana tossed the first no-no in the history of the Metropolitans Friday night in an 8-0 victory over the Cardinals. It took Johan a career-high 134 pitches to complete the task and he was also aided by an incorrect call in the 6th inning.

Watch the final out of Johan Santana's no-hitter
All of the New York Mets were absolutely ecstatic over Johan Santana’s masterful pitching dominance that gave the franchise it’s first no-hitter in over 50 years. I wouldn’t say they were full, hard-on erection excited, but from the looks of the post-game interview with coincidentally Mets starter R.A. Dickey, they were pleasantly plump.
Starting pitcher of the New York Mets, Johan Santana has thrown the first no-hitter in team history on Friday, June 1. Here's the video of the complete game victory:

In an event most Mets fans never thought we would see, the club finally got a no hitter. Star Johan Santana pitched a gem for the first no hitter in the clubs 51 year history.
I will follow up with more details later, right now I am just enjoying the moment!
Alright, so I don’t have any real historical evidence that proves Mets fans traditional ruin great moments but when Johan Santana completed the first no-hitter in the 50 year history of the New York Mets the celebration was somewhat overshadowed by a jean shorts wearing fan that ran onto the field.
For those of you that think I’ve lost my mind, watch the video of the final at...
Congratulations Mets fans. The wait is finally over, and it feels good. It was great to be able to see some Mets history being made, but I couldn’t help noticing how much attention there was surrounding Johan Santana’s pitch count. I know he’s coming off a serious shoulder surgery, but was there ever really a question about whether he would have been pulled from that...
Doug O'Neill knows how to play to a New York audience.
The morning after Johan Santana pitched the first no-hitter in New York Mets history, the trainer of Triple Crown hopeful I'll Have Another showed up for his Belmont Stakes news briefing sporting a Mets cap.
A security guard at his colt's barn gave him the cap Saturday morning, and O'Neill popped it right on...
June got off to a rousing start with a 10-4 picking start. That Mets pick sort of worked out
didn't it? Nice going, Johan Santana. Good for you and for the Mets. The Angels over the
Rangers was another particularly good pick. Mike Trout again stole the show. The guy is the
most exciting player in the game right now. On the flip side, the Pirates won easily and the
