Buerhle No Hitter

Recommended Posts

Nolan Ryan was technically on the decline for his last couple of no-hitters. Doesn't mean he still didn't have something left. But really, any pretty decent hurler is capable of throwing one if a perfect storm of circumstances comes about.

That's true. Don Larsen is well known for his perfect game in the 1956 World Series, but was basically a journeyman pitcher. Nowhere near a Hall of Famer.

But Nolan Ryan did throw seven no-hitters. It's one thing for a no-name to throw a no-hitter, but when you throw seven ... wow!

... and strike out over 5,000, and beat up Robin Ventura. :P

You could say his pitching was on the decline (though I never think it was) and he was getting old, but he could still whoop some serious @$$.
