    Article: R.A. Dickey pens bittersweet farewell to the team and city

    http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/ba...icle-1.1225987

    God has blessed me in so many ways. His grace and mercy are at the center of my life. I may not pitch for the home team anymore (a friend told me I now have to start calling myself a Canuckleball pitcher ) but wherever I go from here — wherever I might wind up in the future — I hope you know that I will never forget my three years in New York, and never be able to adequately thank you for everything you’ve given me.

    Class act.

    The whole article is a great read and something you rarely hear from an athlete.
    Everyone should definitely give it a read.

    Thanks for posting!

    Most Mets fans are pulling for the Jays 100% to win the series this year.

    This is the kind of guy you are getting in RA - no matter what else happens one thing you can know for sure is that this dude is ALL IN. He's never going to show up to a game unprepared. He's never going to do down like a chump. He never says die.

    You guys got yourself a heck of a player. If RA puts y'all over the top in route to a WS, I'll be very happy.

    Classy move. Highlight was definitely "Canuckleball pitcher" tho imo, lol.

    Probably not. Thirty would be more appropriate.
    "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."

    Will Dickey go down as a top 5 favourite Met of all time to Met fans?

    I'd say part of it is also because most Mets fans don't like the Yankees.
