Ummmm... Lester throwing a no-no with one out in the 9th. Is it too late for the jinx?

Wow! Good for him.....but uh, what about our guys? What a depressing season thus far.

First Clay, now Lester. Meanwhile, Joba becoming human, Hughes with a cracked rib and Ian with a 9 era. Alright, that's enough with the pessimistic talk.

As a Yankee Fan, it kills me. As a human being, to see this kid come back from cancer and achieve this, it's a great story. He deserves all the good feelings he can get.

Gawd, you know that ESPN will milk Lester's no hitter for all it is worth for the next couple of days.

The Spurs better win this damn game.

Lester's no-no is a great story no matter what team you root for. Similar to Abbott's back in the 90's. For any person to come back and dominate his profession like that is inspiring. It'd be nice if the Yankees-Red Sox thing got back to a respectful animosity.

Wish I could make the 8 June Yogi museum event. Those are my three favorite Yanks from the 70s-80s teams.

What's the difference between a museum and a museum with a learning center? Can't you learn stuff at a regular museum?

Let's hope Alex's return inspires a season-high four game win streak! Or am I being greedy?

Without question, Lester's a great story, and I don't want to take anything away from it. But I guess I don't get why his story is treated with a sort of reverence that John Kruk or Wayne Tolleson never got - or, for that matter, that Jonny Gomes doesn't get.

Jim Abbott is an altogether different case.
