Man... I was on the road all day and was ecstatic to be able to listen to Morrow's performance. All you lucky guys who were at the game, I hope you all can't talk after a performance like that. I was losing my voice in the car with all the cheering and clapping I was doing!

Congrats to Morrow, filthy stuff on the highlights I just watched!

The look on Hill's face in the 9th with 2 out against Longoria said it all, we all wanted the No-hitter for Morrow.

That hurt to watch...it was SO close. I really thought Hill was gonna make that play. He got to it but it just didnt happen.

Tough break for Hill and Morrow. I am sure everyone in the stadium and watching the game were willing that the ball stuck in his glove and he could make a play to first. But with the way he dove and Longoria running hard I am still sure Evan would have gotten to first with the ball remaining in Hill's glove as an infield hit.

That was "Ace" stuff by Brandon Morrow. I felt when Cito came out that he was only going to talk to Morrow, which was the case as he left him in, but I was a bit nervous that he was going to pull him.

I didn't have any doubt in my mind that Cito came out just to talk to him, ask him how he's doing, if he's ready to wrap this game up and to just congratulate him on a well pitched game. I would have been pissed if Cito pulled him there.

Little note on Morrow's performance today from ESPN


According to Bill James' metric "Game Score," which is a one number-summary of how good a pitcher's single-game performance is, Brandon Morrow's 17-strikeout, 2-walk, one-hitter on Sunday - which got a score of 100 - is tied for the 4th-best single-game pitching performance since 1920. It was the highest by any pitcher in a single game since Randy Johnson scored 100 in his perfect game back in 2004.

I was a bit pissed when Morrow didn't get the no-hitter. I really wanted him to get it, but at least he was impressive. I kinda felt sorry for Hill for not making the play.

It was also the best all time non-steriod assisted one game strike out performance by a Jay. Take that, Roger Clemens.

The last two days have been SO much fun to watch! You gotta love the way these guys are playing for each other. If Toronto fans don't start finding their way to ballpark now, they should move the team to Winnipeg :-)

Wonder if seattle fans are jumping off buildings for that trade. The rest of his numbers average, but the jays seem to have won that trade

Not really the other guy in the trade seems promising to us he still has to go through Double A and Triple A but so far he killed Single A and High A.

League on the other hand hasn't lived up to last year but all relievers go through down years.

Im happy for Morrow though.

I was going to go to the game, but I don't like driving that far in the rain. I wish I risked it though. The rain held off for the most part and I missed an awesome game. Well done Morrow.

Damn, Chavez really is tearing it up.

Yea, he's looking pretty good, but it's not like he's irreplacable. Heck we dont even knows if he will ever be a full time ML'er.

From the first inning on he had that dirty stuff. You could see in many at bats by rays hitters, there was a lot of guessing going on(jaso comes to mind) and when you throw as hard as morrow does that real tough to hit. Great game morrow and lets hope this is a sign of whats to come.
