Fantasy Baseball Stock Watch: R.A Dickey…Buy?

Fantasy Baseball Stock Watch – R.A. Dickey, Tommy Milone and Yovani Gallardo Welcome back to another edition of Fantasy Baseball Stock Watch. This week I am featuring three starting pitchers who have had varying levels of success in this 2012 year. I want to prefix by making note that I currently do not own any of these three, but I wish I did for the reasons below. On with the...

Video of that home run Adam LaRoche hit with Roger Bernadina's bat

Below, video of Adam LaRoche's bomb off an R.A. Dickey knuckleball in the sixth Tuesday night. LaRoche told MASN's Kristina Akra after the game that he used Roger Bernadina's bat during the AB because it's lighter than his own: "It's funny. I took Bernadina's bat up there. They were joking around. You know, take a lighter bat. So I tried it. Sure...

Nationals put end to Dickey's streak

With their once-promising season quickly slipping away, the New York Mets needed R.A. Dickey to stop the slide Tuesday night. Instead, it was Dickey's winning streak that came to an end. Adam LaRoche hit a tiebreaking homer and the Washington Nationals handed the knuckleballer his first loss in three months, beating the sinking Mets 5-2 behind Gio Gonzalez's seven crisp...

When Will the Nightmare End PreGame: Washington Nationals (56-39) at New York Mets (47-49)

Gotham’s White Knight, R.A. Dickey Coming off yet another extra inning loss, the Mets will send stopper R.A. Dickey to the mound tonight looking to stop a four-game skid against the Washington Nationals at Citi Field, where New York hasn’t won since July 7th.

Malaise Setting In As Listless Mets Fall To Nationals 5-2

Oh no, not another Joe D. game recap… Embrace the horror my friends. Nothing we do now will change anything. The time to strike was when the Mets were winning and they needed a general manager who could sustain that glorious run when the Mets never spent a day under ,500 and staked a solid claim on the National League Wild Card. You snooze, you lose. Sandman fell asleep at the...

Nationals use big inning to beat Mets, Dickey

NEW YORK-As the first-place and third-place teams in the National League East, the Washington Nationals and New York Mets are not technically at opposite ends of the spectrum. But the two teams continued going in completely different directions Tuesday. Adam LaRoche's two-run homer -- the third of five straight two-out hits off R.A. Dickey -- broke a tie and started a four...

Nationals Want To Take Advantage Of Plummeting Mets

Just like last week, the Washington Nationals (55-39) are gearing up to face the New York Mets (47-48) after finishing a four-game series split against a division rival to hang on to first place. And just like last week, the Mets are still in third place and in the midst of a terrible losing streak that has gotten even worse. The Mets are on a serious downward spiral, and have...

Nationals 5, Mets 2

NEW YORK-Adam LaRoche's two-run homer-the third of five straight two-out hits off R.A. Dickey-broke a tie and started a four-run sixth inning for the Washington Nationals, and Gio Gonzalez allowed an unearned run on two hits over seven strong innings as the Nationals beat the reeling New York Mets 5-2 on Tuesday. The Nationals' fourth straight win improved their National...

I Would Ask “How Much Worse Can It Get”, But I’m Too Afraid of the Answer

Look, I’m aware that the Nationals are a very good team with excellent pitching, but ONE GAME isn’t too much to ask is it? Stephen Strausburg looked dominant today in the Nationals 5-2 win over the Mets, their second consecutive 5-2 victory over the Mets.  In a nod to consistency, this is the third straight game against the Nationals that the Mets have scored two runs.  At...
