  1. Still nothing to say about the Mariner no hitter here at Fangraphs? Ok. So when a no-name pitcher on a sort of decent team no-hits a last place team, that is article worthy… when a big name pitcher gets a blown call or two in their favor, in the name of getting a franchise their first ever no hitter, also noteworthy… but six pitchers combining to no-hit the team with the best record so far in the majors in 2012, well, hey, throw an article about R.A. Dickey up there and call it good for the weekend.

  2. As much as I like Kevin Millwood and co. I believe a much more newsworthy subject is Dexter Fowler’s .925 OPS so far.

  3. It’s the weekend, turd. Beside, Santana and Humber had to wait a few days for their articles and Weaver didn’t get one at all.

  4. It’s that damn Fangraphs anti-Mariners bias again!

  5. it was 6 pitchers and they no hit the dodgers without kemp. Impressive, but not that impressive in my opinion.

  6. And, by the way, there was a questionable call in the M’s no-hitter.

  7. And yet it has only been done 10 times in MLB history (no matter the number of pitchers greater than 1). Still, since I’m a reader who actually pays attention to Fangraphs routines without looking for fabricated grievances to get butt-hurt over, I wasn’t expecting any mention until Monday. If then.

  8. So what incentive to draftees have to sign for anything below slot? Pre-draft deals to be drafted higher? Anything else?

  9. yeah, I’m sure Dave Cameron can’t possibly have anything to say about it, for example.

  10. Most likely, it’s because the current draftees know that their first-round positions are a byproduct of a weak draft class. Correa, for example, is a fine prospect, but most years he wouldn’t go #1 overall. So he’s left with a choice between taking somewhat less than the slot value this year or re-entering the draft next year, getting drafted later, getting less money and losing a year of development time. Conversely, the teams have all the leverage in the world because if their draftees don’t sign, they’ll just get compensation picks in a stronger first round next year.

  11. Gavin Cecchini is a shortstop, not a pitcher.

  12. Indeed. Edited duly.

  13. Check MLBTR for the draft signings and cost, they arent all consolidated in one neat table but a quick scroll through the first page or two should net most if not all the first round signees.

  14. Baseball America has charts for who’s signed from the draft, sortable by team, round, etc.

    try here

  15. For now……

  16. Yep, that was a close play at first that if you watch enough baseball, you have seen those called both ways. The Mets *No-Hitter**** did not feature a questionable call. It featured a flat out blown call where the ump was actually in the absolute perfect position to see it to make the right call and still got it wrong.

  17. I’d actually think it’s more likely that out of 6 different people, one of them was going to have an “off” day, compared to one guy just having a really good one. A combined no-no is slightly more impressive in that regard.
