Man, I don't know how I feel about this yet. I feel like if there are too many, the ninth inning of a potential no-hitter stops being must-see TV. Although if this means I finally get to see one in person, I might change my mind.I'm all in for it. Let's get to 30. I love it. Baseball was juicing the balls for so long...
I think with the increase of swing and miss in the game, there's a good chance that it is causing the corresponding increase in no hitters.Is it just me, or are there a LOT of these this year? Not shocking with the hitting down, but I'm not sure I'm ready for fifteen no-hitters in a season.
Detroit's Spencer Turnbull just no-hit Seattle. Fifth nine-inning no-hitter in MLB this year. The record in the Modern Era is seven in one season. Second time the Mariners have been no-hit this season. It's May 18, and they are hitting .199 as a team. That is a real statistic.
Teams are averaging 7.83 hits per game this year. When the average is that low for something that can only be measured in whole numbers, 0 is going to show up an awful lot. I hope Theo has some good ideas, because the games are hard to watch for fans of most teams.It seems like just about every night now you can check the scores around 8:30 or so and find some team is hitless in the 5th inning.
