I’m Googling it now. This will only take a second…
Ok, apparently it was Jonathan Sánchez who pitched the no-no and apparently that is his picture at the top of this post. Give me just a couple more seconds to Google him.
Alright… This is what I found:
Does anyone outside of the Bay area know who Jonathan Sánchez is? Even Google didn’t know him, and Google knows EVERYONE! How am I going to find out about this Sánchez guy so I can write about him?
Anyways, I looked up Jonathan Sánchez on Wikipedia. It turns out, he does in fact have a Wikipedia page. Then again, who doesn’t?
Ok. Well, I don’t. Korked Bats doesn’t. I’m pretty sure no one else who writes for this blog does. (If anyone knows how to change that, help us out! We would LOVE to be on Wikipedia!)
I started reading about Mr. No-no. Apparently, he started the year as the Giants’ 5th starter. After starting the season 2-7 he was demoted to the bullpen and has been pitching in relief since. He got a chance to start this past Friday night and well… Nine innings later, no one got a hit off of him.
Well, don’t be too impressed. His competition wasn’t much. (Now, don’t be too quick to judge. I’m not knockin’ on the Padres.) What I found on Wikipedia may surprise you.
Now you are probably asking, how do you know this is true? There is a lot of made up stuff on the internet.
And in saying this, I will respond with, “Yes, that is true. There is a lot of made up stuff on Al Gore’s greatest invention next to Global Warming.”
