The Best Baseball Player Ever: Ken Griffey Jr.

R.A. Dickey Continues His Historic Season

Before I get into how great R.A. Dickey has been, let’s start at the beginning of the season for the right-handed knuckle-baller. Dickey, like the Mets, was expected to do nothing special. Everyone had the Mets as the cellar-dweller in the NL East, and Dickey was basically unknown to the national public. Read more of this post
