Matt Cain is Perfect

San Francisco Pitcher Matt Cain

ADAM RAISED A CAIN

Since the dawn of time, when man first crawled out of the muck and the mire till today it's only happened 5 times.  I'm talking about the Houston Astros being held hitless in a game.  
Last night Matt Cain threw a perfect game and beat the Astros 10 - 0.

Personally I think people make too big a deal about no hitters.  This year there's been 5 no hitters already.  They've become as common as a tramp stamp on a stripper.  Very pedestrian.  
I remember back in 2003 when no hitters use to mean something.  (SEE MONDAY'S BLOG)

I remember in 1986 attending the Mike Scott no hitter against San Francisco Giants to clinch the National League West Championship.  Now that was a no hitter. 

Last nights, it was just a game that didn't mean much so I can't imagine anyone really cared.

Plus the Astros have thrown 10 no hitters and only had 5 thrown against us, so that means we're still ahead by 5 no hitters.

Okay, enough sour grapes, that was an amazing performance by Matt Cain last night.  He's one of my favorite pitchers and he was a nightmare last night for Astros hitters.  Even my man Jose Altuve had a bad night striking out three times.  

Matt Cain has been overlooked because of Tim Lincecum, but Mr. Cain has been a rock for the Giants staff posting double digit wins and an impressive WHIP for the last 3 years.

The Giants staff is one of the best in baseball with Cain, Lincecum, Barry Zito and a nasty 22 year old left-hander named Madison Bumgardner.  I'd be surprised if they don't make the playoffs especially if Lincecum can get back on track.  He hasn't has a win since April 20th.  (4-20)

Don't worry about my team.  I know the Astros will bounce back today and I predict J.D. Martinez will hit a grand slam.  In fact, I guarantee it.,
