Congrats to Rays Matt Garza for Pitching a No-Hitter. What about the Mets?

Every major league franchise has pitched a no-hitter, except two:  the San Diego Padres, and, of course, the Mets, who have not managed a no-hitter in their almost-50-year existence, despite having some of baseball’s best pitchers over that period.  Ex-Mets who went on to pitch no-hitters elsewhere include Tom Seaver, Nolan Ryan, David Cone, Dwight Gooden, Mike Scott, Hideo Nomo.

And 10 Pitchers pitched no-hitters BEFORE they joined the Mets.

Bonus trivia:  Hideo Nomo pitched no-hitters both before he pitched for the Mets, and after.
