Hello, ladies and gentlemen, I'm Isaac Gentleman right here at a SportsCastr.
And, yeah, I'm a Mets fan and we're gonna be reliving Johann Santana's no hitter from eight years ago.
Yes, this is the turn back.
Today's day, June 1st 8 years ago Today, June 1st, 2012 Johann Santana on my New York Mets Do a no hitter, and this is still to this day, the only makes no hitter, and he's special.
Look, looking back, Terry Collins and other Mets fans are mad that you know Joe Hansen.
Tene stayed in the game because that lets the droves Hansen tired having injuries and, you know, just not having a good career after that.
And in this video, besides reliving Johann Santana's no hitter from eight years ago today, I am gonna play a video on what happened to Johann Santana.
You know, why did he stop playing baseball? And that's because of injuries and possibly because he stayed in so long to get the no hitter of state in the full nine innings.
But it paid off.
The Mets finally got a no hitter, and yet we just get run into this video we're gonna force start with reliving every out from Johann Santana's no hitter.
Then after that, we're gonna show just the ninth inning the whole ninth inning of job and Santana's no widow.
And then we're just gonna show what happens Or Johanns intact.
So again, eight years ago from today June 1st, 2012 Joan's antenna got the first Mets know better.
And to this day, the only Nets. No.
So I was gonna win right here on sportscast.
So let's get right into this video.
I'm gonna share my screen right here on SportsCastr.
Thank you, everyone for watching.
Okay, so on your screen, you guys can see again.
This is reliving every out from Dorian Santana's no hitter.
The Mets posted this on their YouTube shaken Go find this in other videos online.
And then after this, we will be showing again.
Drove hands and China's full of ninth inning, only the ninth inning.
But again, this is just one pitch one out.
So they're not showing a whole lot back.
Okay, let's get started.
He's lost his last start. That shot out.
Nine pictures and five of the nine innings kept that So I was loading the center, started for the next two years, two years and says, That's the second out.
You know, in the of course, the 123 inning We know we got a no hitter.
So right, dude, who was always there? Manager and players.
This was again, every no hitter.
There's always fantastic place in the field, diving catches.
And what's more special downside is it saves in a little right.
He's diamond cackles in the eighth and ninth inning, saving over way work to the edge of the warning track.
One thought, in short, I never wanted that shortstop on the Metro, to be honest.
And then the big mention creating.
He threw nine pitches, nine strikes, no score in the third.
Popped up Murphy with the angle.
Dude is gonna catch it.
That's the first.
Free is it's a center field, playable for new and ice.
It gets more exciting when it gets close to the No Ghetto.
Finishing eighth or ninth inning accepted Marvin.
Marvin Miller telling David Wright again, one of the best Mets players ever.
One of my favorite much players to play in a Mets uniform, spending so clear on the Mets that is eligible to come off the disabled is Monday as weight, right? It goes down swinging, runner goes, and it's looped in the air to shallow left.
Baxter coming on eight years ago from today, and it's pulled 1/3 1 Nice, right? And he throws.
I felt one away.
Not I'd like to hear 1 10 1 15 Swing and a miss and holiday out on the change up 31 from Santana Club.
Davis coming over into foul ground.
What's the we're gonna do it that circles and grabs it? The wind is fallacious right now.
Santana Even better he hasn't given up a hit will pop up on the right side.
Frank Davis one out, 31 I'm gonna Molina on a fly ball deep left field, say, And that is again if he didn't make that catch.
No, no, it'll okay, so that's saved.
Jonah Hansen and Adam's.
Its attacker down.
The first Davis makes the play, as you know, has been intact through seven.
The question is about to continue beyond this.
Maybe fudging to 100 $15 green leads off the 8th 1st pitch swinging pops it up in this inning comes doing ice on Nice Cat.
So again, one out in the eight minutes to catch two to come in struck him out two outs in the eighth inning.
Beltran flares one.
So, ladies and gentlemen draw Hansen.
Time is that Ah, 122 pitches going into the ninth inning again.
No hits allowed a few walks, though, but going to the ninth inning, he has a no hitter.
He needs three outs, but he's out of 122 pitches.
Let's see what happens.
Sandtown of the close knit again.
That's already wanting it.
So I think the majority clinched the one.
But what about the no hitter? That clinic to more out field, new and ice coming off you.
So, ladies and gentlemen, one.
Let's see well, joins and get to know it.
Come out! Here it is.
First nets, no radio and the only ones that is day.
Your heart set on strong.
The first know that are in New York.
So they have it dry in Santana Mets, though it again no through or 27 outs from Joe.
And since I was no hitter and look, that was a tremendous no hitter, obviously, what makes a tremendous Well, it's the only one in Mets history at that time in to this day and look Julian Santana through tons of pitches and, you know, that's kind of the reason.
Hey, you know, these career just went on the client after that game, right? Hey, at least you had a no hitter in your career, but obviously had much more, you know, outings in his career, but nothing that good.
And people say it's Terry Collins fall again.
Former Mets manager people say it's Collins far for keeping him in, but Collins has no regret regret to this day.
And yeah, but look, maybe if Santana didn't staying those nine innings and met still wouldn't have a no video to this day.
Now we only have one, but maybe they would have done.
And maybe Johann Santana would have been pitching two years ago.
I don't know, but again, eight years ago from today, Johann Santana threw a no hitter.
So we're gonna play a video in what is happening.
What? What happened to join hands in tennis crew.
So, like I said, you know, he threw so much pitches.
So that's the reason his career went on, decline his, you know, he had to go through soldier.
And after that, he won't be a good picture again.
So what's happening to drove him and Santana? I don't play that video.
Okay, let's get this video on the screen.
So again, I'm gonna show my screen. Show the audio.
This is on YouTube.
This is stark raving sports.
He has 49,000 of subscribers on you, too.
And he's making this video about what happened in Joe Hansen tennis career after the no hitter.
Okay, So what happened to Joey? And same time after we do that know better.
That's playing video.
Grilled by injury, Josh's due to age and poor life decisions.
So what about former Cy Young Award winner Johan Santana? If you've seen the new Spider Man movie? Yeah.
Look, how could I forget? Besides, you know, throwing a no hitter.
He also was a Cy Young Award winner before that.
No, better actually.
So he had a tremendous career in would have been way longer.
Maybe a few more Cy Youngs and maybe a few more are stored game awards, but no Terry Collins wounded.
Or did he? I don't know, but hey, your own to No matter what, your something rare for MLB players, JB's moves character may have the answer, which is ale, but there are some other logical explanation is that we will discuss throughout this story.
Relax, my friends.
Let's get into the third episode of my new favorite sound that somebody says So let's first discuss how we got to the major leagues.
Johan was born in the South American nation of Venezuela.
He didn't pitch in a game until he was a teenager because he began His Little League career is a shortstop.
His dad was also a popular.
They're semi pro shortstop, which will play a bigger role in just a second. Just like myself.
When I was little league, Johan was a lefty who had a thing for playing in the middle infield.
But unlike play a Mass, he taught himself to throw right handed so he could play the position he wanted to.
You want tried out for a team when he was a kid and didn't have a good first try out.
So what does I'm and do? He shows up the very next day flexing in his dad's jersey and got a very different reception from the coaches.
So young Johan was playing lots of ball, climate up the ranks and making a lot of noise in Venezuela's national baseball tournament.
So much noise, the fact that it caught the attention of major league teams, one continent of north.
Now, I guess how Michael Chadwick and Roy Silver got Josh Hamilton toe where he needed to be in our last story.
Andres Rainer of the Houston Astros organization got Johan where he needed to be, with no funding given to him from the Astros.
Inter spend his own money to buy a car to drive to the Andes Mountains just to go see Johan in Venezuela.
He got him to come work out at Houston's facility with the permission of his parents, of course, and he started there is a center fielder.
He eventually began pitching and even tried to leave because he didn't like it.
But Rainer convinced him to stay, which proved to be the right decision, Santana's and the next several years in the minor leagues, learning how to pitch as well as getting accustomed to living in a different color.
He left the Astros organization to the Rule five draft in 1999 and became a Minnesota Twins.
He made his major league debut the following year and even got his first win against his former team.
He had a pretty rough freshman year and ran into an elbow injury in 2001 that sidelined him for most of the season.
2002 was the year Santana really kicked it into another gear.
He went to the minor leagues for a few months to perfect his changeup, and by the time you say you guys know there's no hitter happened eight years ago from today, June 1st, 2012.
So when he's saying dates, so you guys know he was on the Mets 2012? That's when he there was no it also just so, you know, came back.
He had one of the best in baseball.
He finished with a 2.
99 array in 27 games in which he started 14 of them in 2000 to the Twins, had a really good year as well, making an A.
C s appearance now a powerhouse in the A L Central.
The Twins march back to the playoffs in 2003 with Santana as they race.
You didn't start the season that way, though, as he was more of a bullpen on for the first half of the season, he was relieved to finally be given a rotation spot, and he never looked back.
Down the stretch in mid summer 2004 was Johan's first Cy Young season and the first of three consecutive break out leading season.
Yeah, you went 13 to know with a 1.
18 or run average in the second half in the Cy Young.
Voting that year was unanimous.
He led the league in strikeouts.
ER, a percentage slugging with strikeouts per not and in batting average allowed the only two things that stop Santana in 2005 from winning his second consecutive sell.
Young, where Mariano Rivera and the best pitcher of all time, can't really blame him for that one.
In 2006 Santana became the 35th pitcher in major league history to win the pitching Triple Crown money alone.
And Robinson played on the Twins and not as dominant as Old Hoster Bradburn, who went 60 and 12.
38 in 18 84 on round two.
A Triple Crown, though.
Hey, the more you know.
After a good yet relative, really underwhelming 2007 season, the Twins were looking for trade partners for the two time Cy Young winner.
The Mets were the ones most willing to part with prospects to require Santana.
Those including Philip Humber and Carlos Gomez G.
Nelson carried was complete, and Johan was on his way to the Big Apple.
Santana was one of the and then he won't say this later in the video.
But Carlos Gomez? Actually, I went back to the Mets last year and it wasn't that good.
And, you know, he just got injured and I don't know what happened was sent down to the minors.
None, I think you know.
But I don't know.
I don't know if he officially retired, but I think he's done with MLB, one of the last free agents who were able to come to the Mets and perform better than the year before.
He led the next National League an E R A in his first season with the team and smoothly transitioned into a big sports market.
An atmosphere, even though the Mets were disappointing in both 2009 in 2010 and I still pitched well, is a team's ace.
What's important to note for both of these seasons? Similarly to to that Donatas? Well, it's Santana underwent surgery at the end of the season, these injuries building the upper key factors in the downfall of one of the great pictures of his time.
After seeing all of 2011 Santana returned in 2012 which would end up being his last season and the year, I can finally clarify, my witch is common from earlier going his last season in them.
Obey again, 2012.
Due to that injury, which he suffered after through that no hitter again, let's look at the exact pitch count.
That's like a exact pitch count.
Okay, so again, I'm finding so okay, so again, on june 4th, 12 2008 years from today, he threw 134 pictures again in 19 inning creatures.
No, uh, no hitter.
Eight strikeouts, five walks.
So again, Terry Collins allow drop hints intended to throw 134 pitches.
Yes, he did that because he wanted intended to get the no hero, but that ended up ruining his career.
That was his last season due to that injury he suffered again after throwing 134 pitches to get that no hitter.
I'm going to skip ahead to the only important part of that season on June 1st, and that's it.
I have never thrown a no hitter in their 50 year history and, as far as I'm concerned, is still having.
But that's not what the history books say during the game.
Former Met Carlos Beltran all drama wine that was called foul replay wasn't a felt time was gonna be the manager of this year because that asked how scandal of the less the alcohol stood with help from Mike Baxter in left field and manager Terry Collins, who let him throw 134 pitches that Johan Santana had the quote first.
No hitter in New York Mets history.
Fun fact actually drove past Citi Field.
That's same day on my way to the city.
Like, should I still find pretty awesome? That was pretty much it for you on Throwing that many pitches when he was on the pitch limit throughout the season clearly accelerated his decline.
That was his last good moment, and I guess a no hitter to close out A career like that is about to speak.
Sweet is it could get without making it toe.
Yeah, he had a few more deals to get somewhere to do.
But I want to send 1000 13 and it's time with the Mets was over.
He tried making a comeback in 2014 in 2015 with your Brill's and Blue Jays, but couldn't make it work.
And that was the end of the career of Johan Santana.
Since leaving the major leagues, Santana has talked about making a comeback several times as recently as last year.
He was also elected to the Twins Hall of Fame last August, which was pretty great.
See, I'm pretty sure that would make him ineligible to return, but I couldn't find any clarity on that rule.
So don't quote me on that.
Nowadays, the great No Han seems to be enjoying life as it comes without the worry in the world.
He's also made some guest appearances on Twins broadcasts.
So it's with What about the middle of this dark magic witches stuff? Well, my dad and I have a working theory.
We believe Johan sold his soul to the Wilpons to be able to throw a no hitter, and that's why he wasn't able to continue his career much longer after a much better explanation.
That has some sort of ground in reality to be found by taking a look at just how many times Johanna was hurt towards the end of his career, which could also will be explained by the dark magic behind the Mets injury curse.
But I'll stick to the logic well, explanation here.
A bunch of surgeries and a large handful of minor D.
L stands really killed Montana 135 pitch outing a year after major surgery, they should have kept him on his pitch limit really seemed to be the final straw.
A career cut short at 33 years old was a shame for someone as good as Yon was.
But to have many great seasons a pitching Triple Crown and two Cy Youngs at such a young age isn't too shabby, either.
Johan is one of my favorite players ever.
It was truly a privilege to watch play for my favorite team.
Looks like an dress.
Raynor was right to drive all that way to see Johan back in Venezuela.
Tip of the cap to you, my friend.
Let me know you'd like me to cover next in the comment. Okay.
So again, that was a great into video.
And yeah, again, that kind of describe, you know, not just what happened, You know, Santana.
But how His career of started.
Venezuelan coming on, the twins winning the Cy Young.
