Rockies’ First No-No

Ubaldo Jimenez is now the most famous pitcher in Colorado Rockies history. The 26-year-old Dominican pitched the first no-hitter in team history on Saturday against the Atlanta Braves.

This was also the first no-hitter pitched by a player with the first name starting with the letter U, which means absolutely nothing whatsoever in the big scheme of things, I just thought it was an interesting fact.

Another thing that is interesting and bothersome is that Jimenez had six walks. I always look at a no-hitter with a ton of walks awkwardly, because it makes the stat line look funny. I don’t want to take anything away from the player but maybe the league should come up with a new name for a no-hitter with walks. But with all that said congrats to Ubaldo Jimenez.
