After last nite’s “shoulda been another no hitter” performance from RA Dickey I don’t think you can deny him the title of Best Pitcher in Baseball at the moment.
First off this crazy knuckler just set the franchise record for consecutive scoreless innings at 32.2. WOW RA Dickey ranks above Seaver and Gooden in the record books?!?
RA had no hit stuff and, BMF believes he did in fact toss a no-no but a home field ruling by the official scorer in Tampa gave their guy a hit instead of charging an error to Wright.
It was early in the game so no one thought much of it at the time but it now looms as an epic ruling since it would’ve given the Mets their second career No-Hitter inside of 2 weeks. How freakin’ crazy would that have been!
Personally I thought since he went for it with his bare hand and muffed it it should be an error. I admit its a questionable call one way or the other. My guess is that exact play gets called very differently depending on what stage of a no-hitter it occurs in.
