Found September 24, 2012 on Mets Merized Online:
In Saturday’s 4-3 win over the Marlins, R.A. Dickey delivered another spectacular performance for the Mets and improved his record to 19-6 while lowering his ERA to a league leading 2.66 for the season. Dickey became the fifth pitcher in franchise history to win 19 games, throw 220 innings and strikeout 200 or more in a single season, joining the elite company of Tom Seaver, Dwight Gooden, Jerry Koosman and David Cone as the only other Mets pitchers ever to accomplish the feat. Something that has been getting very little attention in what has been a magical season for Dickey, is the real possibility that he could win the National League’s Pitching Triple Crown. The Mets undisputed ace already leads the league with a 2.66 ERA as mentioned previously. But in addition to that, he currently leads the NL in strikeouts with 206, and is only one victory behind Gio Gonzalez who has already reached the 20 win plateau. Winning Pitching’s Triple Crown is not impossible for Dickey, and with tw...

Mets 4, Marlins 3

Laborious Fruit

If there's one thing we can be thankful for, it's that R.A. Dickey has pretty much single-handedly saved 2012 from being in the conversation for most depressing season of all time. 1993 and 2009 are still the two undisputed kings of that category. 2012 falls in the group of seasons that is starting to run together. 2010-2012, to me, has been one long season. 2013 and maybe...
