The toughest out left in the order, Robinson Cano, spoiled it with a base hit in the seventh.

rcade: master jinxer.

Are you only going to do this to teams with a serious no-hit drought?

I was on a good run for a while.

I usually wait until the no-no is through seven. But Bartolo Colon working a perfect game after six overcame my stitious. And he's not getting any younger.

uc -- to spare you a grumming, Johan Santana threw the Mets' first (and only) no hitter just over two years ago.

Freaky footnote: a few years ago, Colon's #40 was worn by a guy named...Robinson Cancel.
