    Must be nice.

    Sox fans, I'm jealous - and I'm going to have this feeling for a loooong time it seems.

    Congratulations Jon. He looked good tonight, I guess this is what the sox saw when they said he'd be a #2 or #3 pitcher.

    So it looks like the Sox are going to continue to be good for quite a while.

    Congrats to Jon Lester.

    Did I just hear that Jason Varitek set a record by catching his 4th career no hitter?

    Congrats Jon Lester.

    4th Red Sox picther in this decade to throw a no-hitter. The other three: Hideo Nomo, Derek Lowe, and Clay Buchholz.

    First no-hittter from a southpaw since Mark Buehrle did it on April 18, 2007.

    Nomo was the first sox pitcher to throw a no hitter? That happened in 99, they must have had one earlier than that.

    Varitek has caught 4 of the 12 most recent no-hitters:
    Lester
    Buchholz last year
    Hideo Nomo at Baltimore April 4, 2001
    Derek Lowe vs. Tampa Bay April 27, 2002

    Sources: http://mlb.com/mlb/history/rare_feat...ture=no_hitter for the dates and http://www.baseballmusings.com/cgi-b...0&PlayerID=217 to check that Varitek played in those games.

    The last time a team pitched a no-hitter after having pitched another no-hitter less than a year before that was Philadelphia with Terry Mulholland on August 15, 1990 and Tommy Greene on May 23, 1991.

    Oh no, we wouldn't want the Sox having a future HoFer like Eric "Cy" Milton.

    They really need to invent some sort of engine, that you can search things in. This engine, would then return the information you are looking for in less than 2 seconds. They should give it a weird name. Perhaps....google.
