    I just wanna say thank you to RA. He really provided us with something to look forward in an otherwise bleak and boring year. Without him, we would've lost 100 games. Sandy, please resign him and Wright

    Lol I'd watch it. Maybe they'll get Zack Ghalifanakis and this will be his first serious role.

    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.
    A great post FOC. i agree with everything you say about RA, but especially the bolded part. He has become a fine talent, a tough tenacious pitcher, a winner, a leader, a great teammate, and he always has been a man, a very fine one at that. He's real and successful and someone worth rooting for .. someone worth holding onto. In my view it would be idiotic and counter-productive to trade him

    Damn good idea Sick, tho, as great an actor as Daniel Day Lewis is, as great as he is in picking up accents and inhabiting a role, I am worried about his ability to throw without looking like a girl (my immediate apologies to all female posters/readers).

    Like Danny McBride?

    That would be great to see Kenny Powers play RA Dickey

    “My hat’s off to Mr. Dickey. I watched one of his outings when I was in town and I was amazed by his control. I was always looking for new ammunition to bring to the mound so I attempted the knuckleball. It’s a very difficult pitch to throw and needless to say, I never mastered it. I congratulate him on his tenacity not only to succeed against all odds but to excel and achieve this very high honor. I look forward to congratulating him personally.”

    “I saw R.A. pitch at least 10 times this year. I’m really amazed how he was able to remake his career. I never even thought about throwing a knuckleball. To win the Cy Young Award at his age is more incredible than when I won at age 20.”

    McBride looks like he could not top 40 mph when they show him pitch.
