HBT Daily: close, but no no-hitters. Yet.

May 13, 2013, 3:31 PM EDT

Today I fly solo on HBT Daily, talking about all the near-misses we’ve had so far this year. And speculating as to who may through baseball’s first no-hitter in 2013.

    Boo for misuse of begging the question.

    Yay for Matt Harvey.

      Man, as soon as a I taped that I realized I said “begging the question” and I got mad at myself. But it beat doing another take. Blah.

    No mention of Yu Darvish’s bid for perfection being broken up with one out to go? For shame.

      Well, I did limit it to guys who had great games this past weekend and guys who had complete game one-hitters. Darvish didn’t finish the game.

        And yet he came closer than any of those four to actually completing a no-hitter. (I suppose Miller’s achievement is notable, but then again he had a lead almost the whole game and didn’t have the pressure of trying to maintain a perfect game in the late innings.) When you start off with “Today I [talk] about all the near-misses we’ve had so far this year,” it seems an oversight not to mention Darvish.

        I tend to agree with Senor Cardgage (and not just cuz I’m a Ranger fan). He went the deepest with a no-hitter, so ignoring him seems like a ridiculous oversight to me.

        Of course, though, now that you’ve mentioned there have only been close calls, there will now be at least 2 no-hitters this week.

      Against the Astros. Doesn’t count.

        Hey – the Astros are still a major league team and deserve to be respected.

        At least that’s what Jeffrey Loria and the Marlin’s front office told me.
