I believe Scott Baker will get one eventually. He was 3 outs from a perfect game a couple years ago and every so on he goes into the fifth and sixth with no hits.

sorry but i agree, there is no way to call this because you can name fifty pitchers who should but won't. did anyone ever call anabal sanchez, or jon lester, or clay buccholz? Exactly its all a crapshoot here.

No-hitters are kind of crap-shoots....i mean talent doesnt equal a no-hitter.....it is basically luck


i could guess as to whom is the most likely based on talent and ability and the teams they face:

- Dan Haren .vs. Giants
- Lincecum .vs. Padres
- Halladay .vs. Royals
- Sabathia .vs. Indians
- Hamles .vs. Nats (i would love if he no-hit the mighty Mets)


-> it is also important to keep in mind that this pitcher needs to have the stamina and endurance to last 9 innings and pitch at top quality....thats why i did not include Harden

Matt Cain. Not to just name my favorite player, but I read this somewere (not gonna dig it up), Cain has the highest chance of throwing a no hitter in his career, over any other pitcher, at .27%.

What the hey, I'll toss in a guess. Ryan Dempster no-no's the Reds, while allowing a single walk.

To the folks *****in' about this being a stupid thread, because it's a crap shoot...obviously it's a crap shoot. So what? It's just for fun. A bunch of people take a guess, 95% of them are complete homer picks. If someone actually hits the jackpot, 6 months from now they bump the thread, and do a little gloating. A few people make brief congratulatory remarks, while a few more once again whine about how dumb this thread was and state the obvious, that it was a lucky guess. Well, no sh1t, Sherlock. Other than the White Sox fan who made the ridiculous claim that Gavin Floyd is the most likely to throw a no-hitter, and actually tried to present an argument to back it up(lol), I don't think anyone else is taking there prediction too seriously, at least I'm not.

01-27-2009, 02:46 AM

Hmmm, maybe I spoke too soon? I would love to know what genius came up with that juicy little piece of pure fact. And how he came up with it. There are so many intangibles with something like this, that to suggest a single pitcher is the most likely to pull it off, is just silly.

It's true. I heard it mentioned on ESPN when he was pitching last year. He came close a lot in his career.

I'm sure a lot did go into it. That does not make it valid, however. Even if you calculated which pitcher averages the most outs per start before surrendering a hit, and somehow combine that with IP's per start and complete game statistics, and god knows what else, to come up with some number, you can throw it right out the window when you start to consider all the other variables.

P.S. Pausible is not a word. Is it possible that Cain throws a no-no? yes. plausible? yup, that too. Does he have the best chance? impossible to say.

Hawkize31
01-27-2009, 03:32 AM
This is such a random event that predicting it is impossible and perhaps silly to try. Bad pitchers have done it, great pitchers haven't. It helps to have good stuff I suppose, but its not a strict requirement. Don't accuse people of being homers for picking their team's players since thats just as likely as anyone else. I pick Carlos Zambrano again against the Reds, but this is like playing the lottery.

mattybeingmatty
01-27-2009, 03:40 AM

Big deal. Maybe the guys who trail him in the "most times coming close to a no-hitter" category have better nerves than him. Perhaps, while Cain may put himself in the position to do it more often than others, he lacks what it takes to seal the deal. Conversely, what if a guy who may not give himself the opportunity as frequently, is better equipped to finish the job when he does give himself a chance. One pitcher, while having more consistent stuff, may be more susceptible to fatigue beyond 100 pitches, than one who is more streaky.There is just no way to measure these things.

Language like that is unfair. Did Greg Maddux "lack what it takes to seal the deal"? Sometimes its better to be lucky than good, and that's very true with no hitters, although being good makes it easier.

Read the whole sentence... I said perhaps. Your misunderstanding what I was saying. What I was pointing out is that you cannot measure something like that, making it nonsense to say that ONE pitcher is THE MOST LIKELY to do it, and even more so to try to come up with a stat to prove it. Once again, too many variables that cannot be measured with statistics.

Like many others have said this is just a crap shoot, who knows who will do it, however, Sabathia , Halladay, Santana, Haren are all good choices because they are strikeout pitchers who have a history of success,(i would through LinCYcum in to the mix as well but he doesn't have the track record at the pro level yet).
This is just my hypothesis but i think a strike out pitcher is more likely than a ground ball pitcher i.e. webb because it keeps the game in the pitchers hands and a bad defense can't screw up a strike out no matter how bad they are. My example is Kofax and Ryan two strike out pitchers who threw a lot of no-no's in their time, i would also use Maddux as an example, a very talented ground ball pitcher who never came very close. On the other hand i picked two of the best pitchers ever, and a ground ball pitcher can still be perfect, plus i have no stats to back my hypothesis so I wont claim it for a fact, so go easy on it.

Are you just saying that because he used to pitch for the Indians because Cleavland scored more runs than the Yanks last year I think they were like 7th in the majors. And now they have Martinez and Hafner healthy so i don't see why they would be no-no'd. They very well might have the best offense in the AL next year.

in part i did predict that because it would be a cool story-line since he won a Cy Young with them, but i also feel that the Indians have a mediocore offence.

and saying they might have the best in the AL is just ridiculous.

- Hafner doesnt have much left, as evidenced by his past 2 seasons.
- Martinez is great and Sizemore is amazing, but what else do they have?

the thing is most starters can throw well above 120 pitches in a game it generally is not done because the risk of injury increases and it might take longer for them to recover for their next start. The point i want to make is that when a strike out pitcher gets in his grove and he is hitting his spots it adds a level of confidence that greatly out ways fatigue towards the end of the game also it takes away a level of confidence to the opposing team, because if your the cardinals and you see Harden is dealing and he just struck out pujols and glaus and ludwig one after the other and he has been doing it for 5 innings what message dose that send to guys like Adam Kennedy, with ground ball pitchers you don't get that, opposing hitters and the starting pitcher the bat put to the ball and they know that it's only a matter of time tell someone finds a gap and get on base

Dude I'm in church every sunday praying he can even stay healthy.

I'm not stupid enough to waste my time predicting who's gonna throw a fckn nono lol.

As you can see, I'd rather waste my time making fun of this worhtless thread.

You are, however, intelligent enough to waste your time writing two posts about why it's stupid to talk about who is or isn't going to throw a no hitter.

How you rationalize wasting your time is your own business.

Big deal. Maybe the guys who trail him in the "most times coming close to a no-hitter" category have better nerves than him. Perhaps, while Cain may put himself in the position to do it more often than others, he lacks what it takes to seal the deal. Conversely, what if a guy who may not give himself the opportunity as frequently, is better equipped to finish the job when he does give himself a chance. One pitcher, while having more consistent stuff, may be more susceptible to fatigue beyond 100 pitches, than one who is more streaky.There is just no way to measure these things.


Dude, calm down. I was just answering who I thought would have the best chance to do it. Like a smart person I went with the person who the experts picked. I am sorry that Lester was not in cains place but that is not my fault.

Huh? Calm down? I'm cool as a cucumber, Homeslice. What in my post led you to believe otherwise? I was simply sharing my thoughts on whether or not it is possible, to somewhat accurately calculate a pitchers chances of throwing a no-hitter, as opposed to the rest of the field. You seemed to think it had merit, I did not, and wanted to throw in my two cents on the subject. Sorry for all the commotion.:rolleyes:

And why are you bringing Lester up? I didn't say anything about Lester. My pick was Ryan Dempster vs. Cinci, with one walk. For you see, I possess an ability that is quite foreign to this site. I am able to look beyond my favourite team, when posed a question such as this, and consider that there is an entire league full of players out there. Peace.


Unlike most of you homers on here, i'm going to go ahead and say Johan Santana.

See, this one's got the hang of it.:clap:

If CC Sabathia throws a no hitter I will cut off my right nut. Why are Yankee fans so high on themselves. They have like triple the payroll of any team and still can't make the playoffs.


Last year was the first year in some time the Yankees did not make the playoffs.....With the addition of CC, AJ and Tex..be careful what you wish for....Cause the Yankees got younger, better and have more depth....The Red Sox got older. Also, without Manny, David Ortiz will be mortal! Have fun minus one nut d bag.....

And, to give my last 2 cents to this thread...

You guys are all naming these top notch pitchers to throw the no-hitter. Most of the time it is an unknown, or a somewhat mediocre pitcher.

Akagaminosteven
01-29-2009, 03:47 AM
Hiroki Kuroda.

He was inconsistent throughout the year, but last season he had a ton of starts where he outright fooled entire lineups for six innings plus. I think after a season to adjust to batters (and granted, batters will adjust to him) he has the stuff and composure to shut down a lineup for nine innings. Hell, he was one Tex swing from a perfect game.
