I read through this entire story and no where in it does Dickey ever come close to saying that he was "thankful the New York Mets did not meet his contract demands."TORONTO (AP) New Toronto ace R.A. Dickey said Tuesday he's thrilled to join a team that's "all in" to win the World Series and thankful the New York Mets did not meet his contract demands.
Dickey would NEVER say such a thing. Yes, he's glad to be with Toronto, a team that is heavily invested in the here and now. But that is MUCH different from saying he's glad the Mets didn't sign him.
I hate these f-ing writers!
