At the age of 38, R.A. Dickey is 8 and 8 for Toronto.  Through 115.2 innings he has a 4.59 ERA, 42 BBs and 82 Ks and his WHIP sits at 1.288.  Those aren’t BAD stats for a starting pitcher, but I’ll point out the Jeremy Hefner’s stats are better.  Dickey is rounding into form and I think that Toronto will not completely regret the deal they made… though they look like they’ll have plenty to regret.
