    I liked the signing because all I knew about the guy was his 7 inning shutout against us w/ the Mariners.

    Every game it seems like thats the guy we got.

    No one did. But what I find amusing is how many fans are still clinging to his past instead of allowing the fact that he might be the real deal.

    While he was in the midst of reeling off these 6 in a row, how many people posted that we really can't count on Dickey because nothing in his career history indicates that he will be reliable?

    When a pitcher radically changes course by learning a knuckleball, attention must be paid when he begins to achieve consistent success, even after a few years of mediocrity.

    He's the real deal.

    This thread will mark the end of Dickey's run of success with the Mets. Mark my words.

    The thing is that is not like this is the 1st year of him throwing the Knckleball, its his 4th year but this is the 1st year he is having this kind of success so lets not get to crazy happy either.


    I seen this movie before, and I just like to enjoy the ride while it lasts.

    I wasn't hammering the depth move, I was hammering the fact that I was over Omar not going after a guy to be in the starting rotation for the Mets, not the Bisons.

    Takes a while to master the knuckleball. Makes perfect sense that he's having more success with it now than he had in prior years. It's a learn-as-you-go concept.

    I'd be more inclined to agree with the flash-in-the-pan scenario had these last 7 games not been a continuation of what he did in Buffalo prior to being called up.

    Clearly he's got something.

    What I love about Dickey's knuckleball is how hard he throws it.

    It's what makes him unique.

It might be time to take Wang out before anything happens that might be regrettable in the future. Simply put, the Phillies have been beating Wang tonight since the first inning, and they have no intention to stop the beating. Fortunately, the Mets do have a more difficult to beat Dicky, because he is softer than Wang. Dicky should be providing the Phillies with a different style of balls. Dicky will be using his soft balls to confuse the Phillies after they encountered Wang's hard balls.

    SJ, people have been predicting the Downfall of Dickey for weeks now. Those naysayers, they know not what they say!
