I always had a good feeling about Dickey, but I never thought he would be as good as he became. I'm happy for him and I can't wait to see how great he does in Toronto
It will be very satisfying if Dickey and Reyes get the job done there and send the Stinkees fans in an uproar. If Dickey pitches well against them mark my words those fans over there in the Bronx will be pissing and moaning that the Mets traded him there. My heart will bleed for them I'm sure. lol
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 Allen Dickey thank you for 3 awesome years and I wish you nothing but success for years to come.
Fixed it for you.
And yes, the Bishop is heartbroken.

Dickey comes in on a minor league deal a few years ago, solidifies a rotation that had so many question marks, wins the CY Young, and now, is traded, bringing back what could potentially be a part of a core for years to come. I truly think he is your savior, and there goes any chance I ever had at becoming an honorary member
