Mystery man

Who will throw the first no-hitter in Padres history? The Tweeps weighed in, making for a Snarky Saturday. Here, following, are the responses:

@btarvin Hmmm, I thought Anthony Rizzo already did that.

@SkaggsJeff Player-to-be-Named Later.

@gbib21better question: what % of viewing public will be able to watch it?

‏@jefthecrusher hasn't been born yet.

@db625 at this point of frustration, someone not yet born....i do think cory luebke could.

@PadresProspects Jake Westbrook in 2018.

‏@sdsuaztec4 Sean Burroughs.

@jorgearangure Kip Wells.

@tpowell619 Probably hasn't been born yet.

 ‏@GoHorsesGo Seriously? Not Happening!

@joshiesdad Portillo will be one who throws a no hitter for Pads.

@DougWilliams4 The guy you least expect in a night game delayed by rain that doesn't end till after 11 p.m. ... It's a lock.

@PadsBoltsIllini Cole Hamels after Tull or O'Malley or Cohen makes an initial splash by signing him.

@Joosef luebke.

@MatthewHLeach kip wells OBVS.

@RyanKaltenbach 1st overall pick in '13 draft RT

‏@__japhyryder__ Kyle Zimmer RT

@lonndoggie Jamie Moyer. In 2019.

‏@FollowThePadres Adys Portillo.~ RT

@sdsuaztec4 No No Joe Wieland.

@SteveSkandal That pitcher has yet to be born.

@thesacbunt Jason Marquis.

‏@tdv92 a starting pitcher.

@tkdiego Satan - After hell freezes over. Am I being too cynical??? RT.

@LeftCoastBias Luebke. Though that means waiting until at least 2013. Blerg. RT

@gdarklighter Joe Wieland, because a nickname like No-No Joe is too good for the baseball gods to pass up.

@The_NV   Robbie Erlin.


  1. Anthony Gwynn III, on the same day he hits for the cycle.

  2. It will probably be an asterisk-related no-hitter. Like a rain-shortened 7 inning affair. Or two pitchers combining for the no-no when the starter leaves in the 8th with a strained lat or something.
