What a pleasant surprise he has been.
R.A. Dickey is another of Omar Minaya's scrap heap pickups that has surpassed expectations and performed admirably for the team. If he could build a team entirely off of low-risk players a year removed from mediocrity, I think he would. The team would probably be horrible, though.
His one pickup a year seems to do well, though.
Honestly, raise your hand if you thought Dickey would a) make a start for the Mets this season and b) actually do well.
None of you? That's what I thought.
But I can't complain. He's been awesome so far and there's no sign of him stopping yet.
Just waiting for the two-year, $10 million contract for Dickey at year's end.
