Mets screw Dickey

First of all before I start, I’m a new member to this collaboration, My posts mainly will focus on baseball, but I’ll throw some movies in occasionally too.  I’m a huge Mets fan but I’ll do any big story.  For my first post however it’s kind of old news but I feel like it needs a post anyway.

A few weeks back, Mets traded Cy Young 20 Game winner RA Dickey to the Blue Jays for Travis d’Arnaud and Noah Syndergaard, Thole and Nickeas also went to the Jays, and John Buck and Wuilmer Becerra also came to the Mets.  Personally I like the trade for both sides.  Toronto see’s a weakened AL East, and has just added Josh Johnson and Jose Reyes from Miami.  Their plan is to win NOW.  Mets however are focused on rebuilding.  In 2015 if all prospects pan out, Mets have Harvey, Wheeler, and Syndergaard pitching to d’Arnaud… And that’s something teams dream about..

However shortly before Christmas  the Mets released a 2012 Holiday e-card which included a 1 minute Highlight reel.  There weren’t many, but what it featured were, Santana’s No-Hitter, Wright passing Kranepool for all-time Mets Hits leader, and Davis leading the team with 32 Homers after a dreadful first half.  Those are all great parts of last year…

Who doesn’t even make an appearance in the video… Robert Allen Dickey…

For lack of better words… What The Hell

Dickey won 20 games, had 5 Complete Games, 3 Shutouts, Struck out 230 over 233.2 Innings and pitched to a 2.73 ERA and the Mets couldn’t even throw a shot of him in there? RA Dickey was the reason people went to Mets games in September. 32,000 people were at his game where he won #20.  I personally went to the 2nd one of his 1 hit Complete Game Shutout.  The fact that the Mets organization refused to acknowledge he was the most memorable story of 2012 for ALL of baseball is a tragedy.

As a Mets fan, Dickey you will be missed around here. And I’m sorry the organization treated you like garbage during the trade process and afterwards. Good luck in Toronto.
