DUNEDIN, Fla. (AP) Veteran knuckleballer R.A. Dickey has grown accustomed to seeing new faces behind the plate during his two-plus years with the Toronto Blue Jays.
Since a trade in December 2012 sent the NL Cy Young Award winner from the New York Mets to Toronto, Dickey has worked with several catchers.
There's been Henry Blanco, J.P. Arencibia, Erik Kratz and Josh Thole, who was...

It appears that R.A. Dickey did not receive the memo from Alex Anthopoulos in regards to the Toronto Blue Jays new catcher.
To My Dearest R.A.:
We signed Russell Martin, He is our new leader.

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? And the short answer would be…kinda. According to Deadline…actors Ben McKenzie and Logan Marshall...
R.A. Dickey is getting up to speed this spring.
Dickey made his exhibition debut Thursday, starting for the Toronto Blue Jays and giving up one unearned run in two innings during a 7-5 win over the Philadelphia Phillies.
For the first time out, Dickey said his floater was fine. He walked back-to-back batters in the opening inning, but said there was a reason for that.

R.A. Dickey is not done, he’s not someone to be dismissed, and he’ll be extremely fantasy-relevant in 2014.
Last year, most people dropped Dickey in their preseason rankings. The logic was simple, but it was sound: coming off a Cy Young season in 2012, how could Dickey be expected to maintain that success moving to a dome stadium in the AL East?
