    It was too close to call in their eyes, but obviously most of them edge out Dickey over their 2nd place guy.

    Shocker, the five that didn't pick Dickey were a Kershaw fan, a Cueto fan, a Gio fan a Philly fan who hates everything about New York and guy from Colorado is high from the altitude.

    Nobody is going to buy Kleenex tissues, Mets fans by those by the boatload like they're preparing for Doomsday.

    Ok, can we silence the keep/trade talk for just one night and start paying some tributes to the team's third-ever pitcher to win a Cy Young?

    My goodness, we brought in Johan Santana at $20 mill a year. No Cy Young. Omar Minaya signs this 30+ year old never was who was toying around with an experimental pitch. In Minaya's own words, he remembered him from his days in Texas and wanted him in the organization because he might become a good coach some day.

    No one imagined this. Even when I thought i saw something in him after mocking him and his name earlier, i never envisioned Cy Young material.

    If he were just an amazing pitcher, THAT would be enough. But he's so much more than that. He's an invaluable teammate, a great leader, and probably most of all, just a terrific person who fights and succeeds against adversity at every turn.

    As a Met fan, I am proud that he is on our team. As a person, I am humbled by everything this man has accomplished. The man has literally climbed mountains.

    And now, three years off baseball's scrap heap, he's a Cy Young Award winner.

    I salute you, Robert Allen. I salute you.
    "Mr. Martin Tanner, Baritone, of Dayton, Ohio made his Town Hall debut last night. He came well prepared, but unfortunately his presentation was not up to contemporary professional standards. His voice lacks the range of tonal color necessary to make it consistently interesting. Full time consideration of another endeavor might be in order."

    I have never seen anything like this happen since I started watching baseball. A guy whose career should have been finished come back at an advanced age and pitch to the tune of a Cy Young Award.

    A testament to how far a man's will and fortitude can go.

    It makes me feel like anything is truly possible if the heart and desire is there. That's why when I say I want guys with grit and heart and get told that doesn't win I say B.S. I wish more of the Mets players had Dickey's will and determination.

    Not just saying this but they really need to make a movie about R.A. Dickey's story. Disney should get right on it.

    And how many of the writers agreed with you and your bias?

    Enjoy this, who knows when we'll see another season like that again. Congrats, Mr. Dickey
