>Because there haven’t been enough reasons to consider this season the Year of the Pitcher, Rich Harden and the Rangers bullpen attempted to throw yet another no-hitter last night against the Minnesota Twins.  Thankfully, for everybody tired of hearing about how all the hitters are done using steroids (which, apparently, could be the only possible explanation for the upshot in pitching this season), Joe Mauer singled with one out in the 9th to break up the no-no.

All I have to say to that is….

Well played, indeed.
