stang66dad, I'm assuming you've read Dickey's book, yes? I haven't (I want to!), but I was reading a few excerpts and I love the third sentence in the first chapter: I will never be a Hall of Famer and will never lead the league in strikeouts.

I wonder if he's going to end up proving himself wrong?

That would be nasty and perhaps the final nail in Philly's coffin...

In a historic turn of events, the Mets provide R.A. Dickey with some offense.

LOL...imagine if the NL Cy Young and NL MVP came from the same sub-.500 team? That would be something...Wright still has an outside shot IMHO.

Well its def harder and more impressive to do what RA is doing with a losing team than someone with a very good team...

10Ks now, that's 7 10+ K's per game this season!

I just got on here to say that this thread is like the energizer bunny it just keeps going and going and going.

But then I saw that post.
He isn't dodging the Braves to play the Pirates just to win the award. He is trying to win 20 games for the first time for the Mets it 22 years. The team moved his start to allow him the chance to do this in front of his home crowd, its the last home game of the season.

Yes I just back from behind homeplate when they took him out.. LOL fans let TC know how unhappy they were with that.. but he was over 120 pitches. Video coming up. I wanna say it is so close to Santana's no hitter in volume...

Awesome...I believe that was his first game over 120 pitches this year. I wonder if they shut him down or let him give it a go at Miami next week?
