Last night's perfect game here in Seattle got me thinking. The Cubs currently hold the longest hitting streak in the Major Leagues (7,354 games) but something tells me that this is the year.

My question for you all is, who will do it? Who will no-hit the Cubs this year for the first time since Sandy Koufax's perfect game September 9th, 1965? Pick three pitchers and rank them 1 for most likely, 3 for, well, third most likely. My list looks like this:

1: Kyle Lohse
2: Justin Verlander
3: Ted Lilly

Yours?

Personally I don't think it's going to happen as long as Castro is in the lineup. The dude is just a hitting machine. Oh wait I got it, the cubs pitching machine in batting practice. Sorry I have been watching too much espn ha ha.

I think Dusty will forget Sean Marshall is his closer and accidentally send him out there for a whole game. So I'll go with him.

A better question might be, how many pitchers will throw no-hitter games against the Cubs this year... I'm thinking 3...
