Dickey On Connection With Fans, Post Game Comments, Watch His 13 K’s,
“It was as hard as its ever been to not get emotional. From the introductions to the last pitch… But we won the game and that’s all that matters… I want to get emotional. It’s hard, because of the season we’ve had. It’s hard to really sink into it knowing the season could have been different. But this moment transcends that in a way as far as the connection with the fans.” – R.A. Dickey
There was a great quote from columnist Filip Bondy of the Daily News who summed up R.A. Dickey’s 20th win over the Pirates very nicely::
Aside from a costly no-hitter by Johan Santana, another relative geezer, the likable Dickey has been the warmest, most surprising story this whole season in Flushing. When the Wilpons fervently told fans last March, “Stick with us,” they probably didn’t visualize Dickey as their best Velcro argument. Then again, they didn’t expect their team to be 23 games behind the Washington Nationals in September. The fans came anyway, 31,506 of them, not because they trust or support ownership but because this guy Dickey is a truly fun phenomenon. Dickey is somehow both the first of his kind and the last of a dying breed.
During yesterday’s 6-5 win over the Pirates, R.A. Dickey became the sixth pitcher in franchise history to produce a 20-win season as the Mets. Dickey tossed 7 2/3 solid innings tied a career-best with 13 strikeouts. Watch the highlights in this video:
The second video is R.A. Dickey’s post game interview which you must listen to if you haven’t already. In it Dickey gives some great answers to some great questions. Enjoy:
