Now that it looks like R.A Dickey is going to be a Blue Jay I figure I am going to make this thread to say thanks to R.A. When he came up 3 years ago I was not expecting what he gave the Mets and needless to say it has been one of the most pleasant suprises for me ever as a sports fan. This past season with Dickey winning 20 games and the cy young was the only reason Met games were interesting in the final few months. I saw him pitch a gem down in Washington, and I was even fortunate enough to be at the game against the Orioles when he threw a complete game 1 hit shutout.
I have met R.A Dickey once before and he was such a nice and down to earth man. I have read his book and his story and rise to the top is just absolutely incredible. I know that I will most certainly still be a huge R.A Dickey fan and I am rooting for him to kick *** in the American league.
So to Robert Alan Dickey thank you for 3 awesome years and I wish you nothing but success for years to come.
