Johan’s no-hitter was the key this week. He pitched very well in that game. MLB has agreed with me and has named him the player of the week.

Special Note:

Major League Baseball also named Johan Santana as the National League Player of the Week.

Santana allowed four hits with 15 strikeouts in two complete-game shutouts over two starts last week, including the Mets first no-hitter in franchise history. He became the first pitcher to no-hit the defending World Series champions since the Rangers’ Nolan Ryan no-hit Oakland on June 11, 1990.

It is the second consecutive week a Met has earned Player of the Week honors as R.A. Dickey was named Player of the Week for May 21 – 27.

This was the first time the Mets have had pitchers win back-to-back players of the week awards since 1983.
