As one of the perks of tossing a no-hitter, Angels righty Jered Weaver got to deliver the Top 10 list for the "Late Show with David Letterman" on Tuesday night from Target Field, where the Twins topped the Halos 5-0.

The list was the "Top 10 Signs You Will Never Throw A No-Hitter." Letterman's writers originally wanted the No. 1 sign to be "You pitch for the Mets." The Mets of course are celebrating their 50th Anniversary this season, and still haven’t tossed a no-no.

Weaver choose to take the high road, and pass on taking a shot at the Mets. He asked the writers to change No. 1. "I felt bad," Weaver said. "Being a baseball guy, I can't say that."

Can you really blame Letterman's staff for taking a shot at the Mets? The team has thrown 35 one-hitters and have six no-hitters tossed against them. They also had seven players toss no-no's after joining new teams (Nolan Ryan X7, Tom Seaver, Mike Scott, Doc Gooden, David Cone, Hideo Nomo and Philip Humber. In total, the Mets have played 7,998 games without a no hitter.

While most have disregarded the Mets as a joke lately, the club is actually having a decent year. They have a four-game winning streak and a better record than the cross-town Yankees. In fact, under the new Wild Card format, if the season ended today, the Mets would be in the playoffs!

Here are Weaver's "Top 10 Signs You Will Never Throw A No-Hitter":

10. You wear a glove on both hands.

9. The altitude of the mound makes you dizzy.

8. You performed your own Tommy John surgery.

7. Your pitches tend to bounce.

6. You spend most of the game sipping cocktails in the players' wives section.

5. You can only pitch when no one's watching.

4. The last guy you struck out was Phil Rizzuto.

3. You're allergic to the rosin.

2. You're still not sure if you're a righty or a lefty.

1. Most teams don't let the mascot pitch.

Weaver and his wife, Kristen, celebrate his no hitter on May 2.
