Insult to Multiple Injuries

Anibal Sanchez of the Florida Marlins pitched the first no-hitter in two and a half years tonite. Anibal Sanchez*...where have I heard that name? Oh yeah, the Red Sox traded him away this off-season.

Just what Sox fans wanted to see after a massive collapse of a season.

Nothing personal, but here's hoping Anibal Sanchez is Venezuelan for Bud Smith.

* That rotoworld link gets the extra salt in the wound by picturing him in his Boston hat...

I really wish ESPN would dare to show that final out in slow motion. It clearly looked like he was safe, as the short took a sandwhich and Coke break before throwing the ball.

It would have been a shitty end to a no-hitter, but nonetheless, accurate. Anyone have that video that we could slow down and focus on 1st base?

Either way, props to the 15 million dollar TOTAL Marlins, who are 2-3 games away from the playoffs. 15 million as a team. Just incredible.

I heard on the radio last night that that was a controversial call. One guy said it was sketchy, the other said he looked out. But they both remarked that no one seemed to be showing a slo-mo of it.

By "guys" I mean hosts. Not callers.
