R.A. Dickey I don’t know, but maybe I was a bit too hasty to suggest that the Toronto Blue Jays should get rid of knuckleballer,  R.A. Dickey in the  last article I wrote. In the first of a three game series against the New York Yankees, Dickey pitched good and helped his team to a 5-2 victory.  ”He (Dickey) was really good,” said Jay’s manager, John Gibbons in the post game press conference.  Dickey gave up six hits, an earned run, three walks, and struck out six batters in 6.1 innings pitched. In the second game, the Jays got hammered 7-1.  Jay’s starting pitcher, J.A. Happ really struggled on the mound,  giving up seven hits, five earned runs, and two walks.  Happ, however, struck out five  the during  the game. The Blue Jays gave Yankee’s starting pitcher, Hiroki Koroda a rude welcome to Toronto in the third and final game of the series. In five innings pitched, Koroda gave up seven hits, five earned runs, and a walk in a 7-2 Blue Jay victory. Toronto’s starting pitcher, Todd Redmond had a fantastic night on the  mound.  Redmond gave up three hits, two earned runs, four walks, and struck out seven batters in 5.2 innings pitched. Toronto’s defense was also great during game. In the fourth inning, Alex Rodriguez was thrown out at home plate.  Man! I cheered my butt off when I saw that magnificent play.  Speaking of Rodriguez, he also struck out twice during the game. In the fifth inning, there were two terrific plays that took place in the field. First,  Anthony Gose took a base hit away from Chris Stewart by making a diving catch in center field.  Three batters later, Curtis Granderson lined out to Blue Jay’s first baseman, Edwin Ecarnacion. Brett Lawrie had a good night at the plate, going two for four and collecting two RBIs. For  those who wanted to see Gibbons fired at the end of the season, I’ve got some bad news for you.  Toronto’s general manger, Alex Anthopoulos announced earlier this week that Gibbons is sticking around for another season.  Well, at least for the beginning of  the 2014 season anyway. Bad news for pitcher Josh Johnson.  His season is officially over as he continues to suffer from a strained right forearm. The Blue Jays kick off a three game weekend series against the Kansas City Royals tomorrow night at Rogers Center in Toronto.
