Hello and happy Saturday.

This is kind of a rude article.

On Friday night, San Diego Padres pitcher Joe Musgrove threw a no-hitter against the Texas Rangers. It was a special moment, and not just because it was the Padres first game since playing the San Francisco Giants — thanks for that timing, folks.

It was special because it was the first no-hitter in the history of the Padres franchise.

We take no-hitters for granted as Giants fans, because we can rattle off Matt Cain, Jonathan Sanchez, Tim Lincecum, Tim Lincecum again, and Chris Heston without having to think twice. Those are just the recent ones.

The Padres have been around since 1969 and this is their first no-hitter.

Meanwhile, Tim Lincecum not only has two no-hitters on his own, but has two no-hitters against those very same Padres.

Say, let’s watch those again.

So congrats to Joe Musgrove on an awesome, awesome achievement.

And congrats to the Padres for now having 50% as many no-hitters as Timmy has thrown against them, instead of 0%. Progress!
