2012: The year of the no-hitter?

One of the great things about great sports moments is that you never know when you're going to get one. Or more than one.

In 1990 and 1991, major league baseball saw an unprecedented number of no-hitters. Each season saw seven; a number unmatched in the entirety of the game's modern era and surpassed only once in baseball's entire history (In 1884, the age of spitballs and a mound just 50 feet away, there were eight). That two-year period represented a spike of pitching dominance that was unlike anything baseball had ever seen.

2012 has a chance to be another one of those spikes. Maybe the biggest ever. So far this season (and bear in mind there are still roughly 100 games to go), there have been five no-hitters two of them perfect games.
