On Monday night, R.A. Dickey was in complete control of his craft. He pitched his third complete game of the season. He struck out a career-high 13 batters. He extended his streak of consecutive innings without allowing an earned run (42⅔ and counting). And oh yes, he became the first pitcher in Mets history to pitch back-to-back complete game one-hitters.
But this particular...
The idea is certainly appealing to the New York Mets: R.A. Dickey on the mound every four days instead of five.
Dickey puts less stress on his arm than a conventional pitcher because he features a knuckleball. So he probably needs fewer days of rest between starts. And with Dickey the most dominant force in baseball right now, Mets manager Terry Collins acknowledged the thought...
It’s All-Star vote status report day: my favorite days in June!
Joey Votto increased his lead over the second-place vote getter in the first base field. The person he’s beating has changed, though. Freddie Freeman of the Braves has overtaken Lance Berkman of the Cardinals for second place. But whereas Votto had 2.47 times as many votes as Berkman last Tuesday, he has 2.64 times...
If you knew R.A. Dickey was going to have a big year in 2012, you are either a psychic or you’re simply not telling the truth.
How many of you thought R.A. Dickey would have more wins and strikeouts than Justin Verlander?
Coming into the 2012 season, Dickey had a lifetime won-loss of 41-50 and an ERA above 4.00. And, in every season since Dickey debuted in 2001, he had spent...
Jurors will resume deliberations in the Roger Clemens perjury trial after a four-day break.
They received the case late Tuesday afternoon and then deliberated for 3 1/2 hours Wednesday before breaking for the week. Jurors didn't meet last Thursday or Friday because U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton had a long-scheduled speaking engagement in New Orleans. He said he would have...
I misremembered what I was going to say T...
Former all-star baseball pitcher Roger Clemens and his attorney Rusty Hardin arrive at the U.S. District Court after the jury announced it has a verdict in Clemens’ perjury and obstruction trial — The jury found Clemens not guilty on all counts. Clemens is on trial for making false statements, perjury and obstructing Congress when...
R.A. Dickey, a 35-year old pitcher who has bounced around the minor leagues is continuing to put on a human highlight reel each time he takes the mound recently. Dickey started throwing the knuckleball two seasons ago and he appears to have mastered the art. After last night’s performance, he becomes the first pitcher in MLB history to allow no earned runs and strike...
NEW YORK - R.A. Dickey continued his masterful run by throwing his second straight one-hitter, and Ike Davis provided Dickey all the support he would need with his first career grand slam as the Mets beat the Baltimore Orioles 5-0 in front of 29,014 at Citi Field on Monday. Dickey is the first pitcher to throw consecutive one-hitters since Dave Stieb in 1988. Dickey, who issued...
Roger Clemens was found not guilty of perjury, false statements and obstruction of congress for his testimony denying the use of steroids.
Roger Clemens aka “The Rocket” has escaped federal perjury charges after a jury acquitted the New York Yankees pitching great of the six criminal counts against him. The charges stem from 2008 testimony to Congress in which he denied using steroids, or performance-enhancing drugs.
Clemens had been charged with one count of obstruction of Congress, three counts of making a false...
Dec. 13, 2007 - Former Sen. George Mitchell releases a report on performance-enhancing drugs in baseball that implicates Clemens, mostly based on evidence provided by his former personal trainer, Brian McNamee, who told Mitchell he injected Clemens with steroids and human growth hormone about 16-to-21 times during 1998, 2000 and 2001.
Jan. 4, 2008 - Clemens and McNamee are asked...
I’m facing a Taiwanese Animation curse. Whenever I share them, people go “heh yeah okay” and that’s it. When I don’t, they get linked everywhere and people are all LOL CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS. What I’m trying to say is “Carol, just move to the United States and marry me so I can stop worrying about it”.

We have been choking on righteous indignation lately, big fistfuls of perceived sports injustices feeding a beast of fury.
So when a jury found Roger Clemens not guilty of perjury Monday, anger was swift, as were threats to exclude him from the Hall of Fame. We'd show him , that affected, arrogant SOB. How unfair that he walked when everybody -- OK, almost everybody -- knows...
