Gut Reaction: Blue Jays 7, Mets 1 (6/18/15)

Tonight we saw former Met and Cy Young recipient R.A. Dickey take the mound against Bartolo Colon. Ever since Dickey was traded, he has not been able to duplicate his 2012 award-winning campaign. It was nice (and sometimes painful) to see Dickey pitch against the Mets, however it was unfortunate that the Mets could not muster up offense against him, as the team got three hits off...

Toronto Blue Jays: Rough week leaves them in last

The Toronto Blue Jays have lost 6 of their 7 games this past week. They are now sitting in the last place, 5 games back in the American League East Division, which is not too bad of a deficit considering how poorly they have performed recently.

R.A. Dickey – What Has Been the Difference?

Toronto Blue Jays knuckleballer R.A. Dickey has had a couple of firsts in the past week he likely didn’t think he would have experienced at the outset of the season.  For starters, he went winless in April, the first time that has happened to him since he became a full-time starter in 2010.  Secondly, he went 8 solid innings against the Yankees last night but didn’t strike...

Jerry Remy: No Way To Prepare For R.A. Dickey, Knuckleball Pitchers (Video)

R.A. Dickey will take the mound Wednesday night against a team he experienced a heck of a lot of success against last season. The Toronto Blue Jays knuckleballer has struggled in his four starts in 2015, going 0-2 with a 5.25 ERA, but it was a different story every time he faced the Boston Red Sox last year. The 2012 National League Cy Young award winner went 4-0 with a stellar...

The Latest R.A. Dickey Experiment

R.A. Dickey’s season has already gotten off to a good start. The Toronto Blue Jays knuckleballer’s autobiography Wherever I Wind Up is set to be turned into a movie.  And, now, I know what you’re thinking, isn’t that basically what the documentary “Knuckleball” was?
