My Mets Journal.
A year ago, Johan Santana underwent career-threatening shoulder surgery. Three months ago, Mets fans didn’t know if he’d pitch this season- And if he could, how effective would he be? Last night, Santana threw the first no-hitter in Mets history, against the St. Louis Cardinals, currently the best offensive team in baseball. Mets manager Terry Collins to Santana, late in the game: “You’re my hero.” What a great night to be a Mets fan.
