Going into the season if you had told me we'd have a Cy Young and a No Hitter in the same season, i would have agreed that the no hitter would be the greater of the two achievements.

Not having a no hitter was always a big part of our legacy and wondering who would have our first no no and when was part of our annual lexicon. But when Johan finally did it, it seemed anti-climactic. Ok, we got our no hitter, just like almost every other team. And it was after the no hitter that things seemed to turn sour.
On the other hand, Dickey's CY was the crowning achievement of an amazing life of beating down adversity. When i look back at the 2012 season, the CY makes me beam much more than that no hitter.
I understand you and others might disagree. But that's how I feel about it.
