Mets Co-No Was A Real No-Hitter

On April 29, 2022, Tylor Megill, Drew Smith, Joely Rodriguez, Seth Lugo, and Edwin Diaz each took the mound, and none of them allowed a hit. By its very definition this is a no-hitter. In fact, it was one of 17 in Major League history featuring multiple pitchers in a game.

It was an amazing night at Citi Field, and it was a moment New York Mets fans will forever cherish. After all, this was just the second time in team history this pitching fabled franchise had a no-hitter. It was a historic moment in Mets and MLB history.

Really, no one can take that moment away from those five pitchers, this Mets team, the franchise, or the fan base. This will be forever played on SNY, and this is a moment which will be noted somewhere in Citi Field for eternity. It needs to be repeated – nothing can take this away from us.

That includes when Los Angeles Angels pitcher Reid Detmers threw a no-hitter against the Tampa Bay Rays. It was what we have long referred to as a no-hitter, or as Noah Syndergaard put it in his Instagram story, a “real” no-hitter.


Honestly, this is not something which should have been met with any reaction whatsoever. Syndergaard took to celebrating a moment. Instead of analyzing whether he was chiding the Mets or trying to examine why he put quotes around real, we should move on. When Syndergaard was doing this stuff with the Mets, we all loved it.

It’s who he is. He’s a quirky personality. In some ways, it’s why he’s built for the big markets, but more to the point, the second team in the big market. He’s built for the Mets, Angels, or Chicago White Sox. He knows how to garner attention and keep his team in front of the local rival. He’s really good at this.

Whether or not this was a shot at the Mets really doesn’t matter. More to the point, anything anyone says about the co-no, good or bad, really doesn’t matter. That goes for players and analysts alike.

As an aside here, if you are in the Apple+ TV booth, making comments like this is rather humorous. This is the only “network” who has zero exclusivity to their time slot for a “nationally televised game.” That is even before you consider how maligned that booth has been this season.

Overall, Syndergaard and Keyser can say what they want. Really, everyone is entitled to their opinion. Guess what? The Mets still threw a no-hitter, and this is a first place team who is built to win a World Series. Mets fans have enjoyed every moment of this season, and there are going to be a lot more special moments in store as this team goes deep into October.

When the Mets make the postseason and win the World Series, let’s see what everyone has to say then.

    Are you holding Buck hostage? Only explanation for Dom hitting fifth and McNeil 7th

    1. metsdaddy says:

      I’d have McNeil batting lead-off with Nimmo second if I was making the lineups

    1. metsdaddy says:

      Yes, you find smart decisions laughable

  3. David Klein says:

    Yes moving an on base machine out of the lead off spot is “sound”

    1. metsdaddy says:

      And putting him in the second hole which is statistically where your best hitter belongs.

      Yes, it’s sound.

  4. David Klein says:

    Guess Betts and Acuna should hit second second too huh Metsdummy?

    1. metsdaddy says:

      Like Trout?

  5. David Klein says:

    Free Mike from Queens!

  6. David Klein says:

    Dom with two weak grounder 0-2

  7. David Klein says:

    0-4 Dom and 0-17 since his one and only good game.

    1. metsdaddy says:

      Funny how you root against Dom and want a racist reinstated to the comment section.

  8. David Klein says:

    Lol “racist” you idiots call everyone racist sorry I won’t back down I know I’m right. You seem to hate based on my last name.

    1. metsdaddy says:

      Would you be able to stop being ignorant just one day in your life?

    When Nogosek and Trevor Williams are your best pitchers on the night well it wasn’t your night no offense to those gentlemen, who pitched well and kept the Mets within striking distance. Guillorme, Nimmo and Alonso were the only guys to show up on the offensive side of the game and Marte, Smith and Escobar continue to kill this team.

    Megill pitching on his seventh day was absolutely dreadful no idea why Hefner didn’t come out to visit him but whatever and Buck letting him face Cruz was confounding. I’m confident that Tylor will be fine next week against the Cards on Monday.

    Hopefully the Mets offense wakes up against tomato can Adon and pummel him and Walker gives them good five or six innings.

  10. David Klein says:

    Baez 225/266/348 this year so glad he’s gone once his bat speed goes he’s Rey Ordonez.

  11. TheGhostofKelenic says:

    The Mets should tell Dom he might go to minors before every game.
