6 inning Ivan, no-no Nova

Ivan Super Nova threw six no-hit innings tonight against Baltimore, with the suitably named main Os -- Nick Markakis, Vlad Guerrero, Scott, Jones, etc -- in the line-up. He inhaled them like Charlie Sheen sniffing white lines from a mirror.

Forget that it's an exhibition. In terms of his future, it was most important game of Nova's career, and he aced it.

Barring a complete meltdown, he just took one of the two open rotation spots off the board. So much for both Bartolo Colon and Freddy Garcia every five days.

We are so much better off with a young pitcher emerging... than two old guys merging.
