R.A. Dickey is the definition of a late bloomer. He made his first All-Star appearance and won his first Cy Young Award last season as a member of the New York Mets at age 37. That is incredibly old for a player to be enjoying his best season as a pro. Is it possible that the right-hander has discovered the Fountain of Youth?
Judging by the Star Wars onesie Dickey apparently got for Christmas, I’d say it’s a possibility. We’ve seen MLB players rock onesies before road trips before and NFL running backs do it as a sign of team unity, but Dickey is a man in his own world with his Star Wars footie pajamas. That’s how Cy Young Award winners roll.
