So Close!

Chicago White Sox cutie Gavin Floyd came thisclose to a no-hitter tonight. His no-hit bid was stopped by a Joe Mauer (speaking of cuties) double at one out in the ninth inning.

I am no fan of the South Siders. In fact, I live on the North Side of Chicago, and have been a Cubs fan since birth. However, I couldn’t help but cheer on Floyd. This was his second brush with the no-hitter; he took one into the eighth inning on April 12. Methinks that Floyd will get a no-no before long. Congratulations to Gavin Floyd! Maybe Ozzie’s motivation techniques do work, after all.

  1. I always loved Floyd when he played in Philly – I’m glad he is having such better luck with the WSox…and this hair is back to being long and curling out! Yeah!

  2. I am also anti-chisox. This has been well documented on Deadspin, but I love a no hitter more. He is pitching really well.

  3. I watched that game w/ the Twins announcers who began their attempt to jinx the no-hitter in the 7th inning with all their talk of a no-hitter. It was a wonderful game to watch, and it was seriously time for a White Sox win.
