After seeing the following tweet, I feel as if baseball has the 'coolest' single-player feats. More so than the other major sports.

@ESPNStatsInfo: Tim Lincecum lost in Homer Bailey's no-hitter. The only pitcher who was the loser in a no-no & then threw the NEXT one was Mal Eason (1906).

By cool, I don't mean hardest to achieve, I literally just mean cool by the sense of the word :lol: . Weird thread, but I hope you guys understand what I mean.

Chris Davis is the only MLBer to have 37 HRs before the all-star break while only consuming a total of 41 sunflower seeds since the season began.

The Seattle Mariners are the only team to hit a homerun in more than 20 straight games while their leading homerun hitter on the team is over the age of 40.

I just made that up, so not sure if entirely true, but eh.

Very true. Some announcer mentioned that every time he watches a baseball game, almost every time he sees something that he's never seen before. It's true if you pay close enough attention. Another reason why it's such a great sport.

It's the same with **** Homer Bailey when he had his no-no. He was the last to record one in 2012, and the first to record one in 2013. To me that's damn cool.

No offense, but imo this is why baseball is not that great of a sport.

Focus is too much on statistics and sabermetrics and all these esoteric things surrounding on-field play, but not enough on the on-field play itself. IMO, in a good spectator sport the game should speak for itself.

The game does speak for itself. It's just that there are SO MANY possible outcomes of each and every second.

Undefined scoring* (in all other sports, there is a designated "goal" or area in which to do so - only partially true in baseball), defense dictates offense (pitching), no clock, big playing field, small ball, exponentially more matchup-based now, etc.
