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 ever let that happen! There is no way he's going to let Santana go past the pitch count again.Anyhow, I have been hearing some Yankee fans grouse that Santana didn't really get a no-hitter because of the Carlos Beltran foul ball that hit the line and should have been a hit, and so the no-hitter doesn't count because of a missed umpire call. Really, Yankee fans? C'mon now. It counts. Leave the pettiness to Mets and Red Sox fans.Let's face it -- at this point in time, the Mets are the little brother in New York baseball. Do big brothers whine like little schoolchildren when their little bro...
