In the third sentence of his memoir, a humble R.A. Dickey said he’d “never lead the league in strikeouts.” It’s time for a revision — or maybe two.
The talks and negotiations are slow-moving. One person with knowledge of the contract proceedings said that the Mets are “not close” to agreeing to terms with either player.
If Commissioner Selig is so insistent on having an extra Wild Card team in each league, then I have a solution. Is it a perfect solution? By no stretch of the imagination. It has its holes, and many would cry foul if it was ever implemented, but I can guarantee than it’s far more fair than what’s currently in place.
Regardless of where you stand on the new MLB playoff schedule, one thing is for sure: The new format could hurt the teams with the best records, both on the field and in the pocket
Two of Dickey’s complete games and one of his shutouts have come against the Marlins. Let’s see if Dickey’s teammates can pick it up for him like he’s done for them so many times this season.
MLB is not talking about expansion now, but it will happen. Don’t be surprised if the “official” discussion begins this offseason and is finalized within a year. In 2015 or ’16, there will be two more teams playing in the Major Leagues.
The numbers jump off the page. 158 hits allowed in 198 innings. 195 strikeouts and only 45 walks. A WHIP of 1.03. Put it all together and it spells Cy Young Award winner R.A. Dickey.
Mets fans are upset and feeling sorry for themselves these days because the club has lost 10 of their last 11 games, falling 5 1/2 games behind in their chase for a playoff spot.
David Wright pulled the Mets from the depths of despair by snapping their losing streak and has been the Mets’ go-to guy all year.
In the year of Linsanity and Tebow-mania, Dickey has been one of the best stories in New York sports — not to mention MLB. But he won’t get the ball to start the All-Star game.
Tony La Russa has dropped the ball by not starting fan-favorite knuckleballer R.A. Dickey at the 2012 MLB All-Star Game.
Nerdy. Eccentric. Quirky. One thing’s for certain: At 37, years after most players’ careers have peaked, R.A. Dickey is finally reaching his pinnacle.
Dickey’s shaky outing Thursday night may give manager Tony La Russa, already worried about who will catch the Mets’ knuckleballer, reason to pass him over.
The Red Sox don’t mesh together anymore, and when they face the better teams in baseball — such as the rival Yankees — they simply don’t have enough to compete.
Despite his otherworldly statistics through the first half of the Major League season, Mets starting pitcher R.A. Dickey may not start for the National League in the All-Star Game.
