Will R.A. Dickey continue to pick up where he left off with the Mets as he moves to the American League and the Blue Jays in 2013? RotoExperts.com Assistant Editor Tim McCullough believes Dickey is due for a big fall, but Scott Engel and Adam Ronis have reasons to not see it the same way.
You weren’t the only one to read about how pissed Giancarlo Stanton was about being left for dead Tuesday night. Bryce Harper saw it too and tried to recruit. It…didn’t turn out so great. Read on and be sure to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter. Now, on to our morning words of wisdom.
R.A. Dickey has won the National League Cy Young. Chris Russo didn’t see it coming four years ago. Then again, you probably didn’t either.
That’s right: The New York Mets are on the right side of a fielding gaffe for once. R.A. Dickey, of all people, was at the dish yesterday afternoon against the Houston Astros in the bottom of the fourth with two outs and a runner on third. He did a pitcher thing, as in hitting the ball 30 feet, and the inning looked to be over. Except both catcher Jason Castro and pitcher Fernando Abad charged to field the ball, subsequently sharing an intimate moment (pictured above) with Abad meekly tossing the ball first-ward as he rolled over on the ground.
That’s Mets’ pitcher R.A. Dickey being interviewed by SNY after Johan Santana’s no-hitter. In the background there’s someone standing behind the wall… But not quite far enough. Extremely NSFW image after the jump.
In addition to being a pretty effective knuckleballer for the Mets, pitcher R.A. Dickey has gained a cult following as one of baseball’s more interesting characters. But he’s been through some dark times too.
