    I remember Romonosky's first start for the Nats...memory is that he carried a no-hitter late into the game...maybe seven innings, probably into the eighth. Then, bam, bam, a couple of hits. Might even have lost. Those first innings of his firsat game were enought to convince me -- age nine or ten -- that the Nats had found a future ace.

    His career didn't work out like that, but he had those innings.
