Why no love for R.A. Dickey, Mets staff?
Dickey is slated to start tonight on Wednesday Night Baseball against Kyle McClellan -- you don't want this converted reliever anymore -- and the St. Louis Cardinals, and as spot starters go, I'd call the knuckleballer a pretty good one. Dickey is only 1-6 at home, but I rarely look at records; his home WHIP for the season is a cool 1.19, which is more telling for future performance. Perhaps a little luck -- and run support -- would help.
