NEW YORK (WFAN) — Toronto Blue Jays starter R.A. Dickey says he’s rooting for the Tampa Bay Rays to hold on to one of the American League’s two wild-card spots.
Wait, a professional ballplayer cheering on his AL East rivals? That seems odd, but Dickey isn’t about to make any apologies.
“I’ve gotta be honest. I can’t give you lip service,” Dickey told WFAN radio’s Joe Benigno and Evan Roberts on Wednesday. “I’m pulling for Tampa.”
