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 last season while rehabilitating his surgically repaired left shoulder. The Mets said Monday that Santana won't pitch in this week's series at Washington. Instead, he'll face the Yankees in the New York interleague opener in the Bronx.

Can everyone just let the whole foul ball thing go already? Santana pitched incredibly, baseball is a game with a human element. and umpires make mistakes. Let it go already. It was an awesome game to watch, and Mets fans that watched this game will never forget it.

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...

MAKING HI57ORY

Gavin Cecchini went to New York for a pre-draft workout and wound up a witness to one of the greatest nights in Mets history.
