If we take away Santana’s no hitter, or even qualify it, we’d have to similarly invalidate or downgrade pretty much everything that has ever happened in the history of baseball. The record books would contain nothing but asterisks.
This. Qualifications of Santana’s no-hitter are so blisteringly stupid that they probably don’t deserve a response as thorough and considered as Callan’s. It happened. Johan Santana pitched a full nine-inning game and allowed zero hits. That’s a no-hitter. OK bye.
