Mets Leave Dickey Out Of 2012 Highlights Video

R.A. Dickey’s Cy Young Award and 20 wins don’t count as  highlights as far as the official Mets 2012 Highlights video is concerned. That is how Andy Martino of the Daily News puts it

 In a video posted this week on the Mets official website, and emailed to fans, the team sent along holiday wishes, and presented a brief montage of highlights from the 2012 season.

It was all there, from Johan Santana’s June 1 no-hitter, to Ike Davis’ career-high 32 home runs, to David Wright passing Ed Kranepool for the team lead in career hits. That about covered it, right? Nothing else of note happened this year at Citi Field, after all.

Wait, what? Somebody won 20 games, and became the first Met to capture a Cy Young Award since Frank Viola? In 2012? And then he was traded to Toronto for top prospects? Are you sure?

This is a cheap shot and a 2012 Mets Highlights video that doesn’t include any of Dickey’s many thrilling moments doesn’t just insult Dickey, it insults all of us. It’s like reading a great book with all the best chapters torn out. It belongs in the trash.

Terrible job by the Mets…
