    Former UK pitcher James Paxton

    Throws a no-hitter tonight

    I think he had 16 strikeouts in his last start.

    Not too shabby

    Re: Former UK pitcher James Paxton

    Paxton was a first-round draft pick by Toronto in 2009 out of the University of Kentucky, but he didn't sign. He instead played in an independent league and was drafted by the Mariners in the fourth round the next year.

    I had forgotten that he turned down a chance to return to his home country with a 1st round draft pick offer.

    Re: Former UK pitcher James Paxton

    What was the reason he turned down the first round Toronto pick?

    I’m guessing he received some sort of super powers when the bald eagle touched him.
