R.A. Dickey wins Cy Young award
After posting a career best 20-6 record with a 2.73 era, coupled with a league-leading 230 strikeouts, R.A. Dickey was awarded the Cy Young Award for the 2012 MLB season. At 38 years old, he now faces an uncertain future filled with questions.
Will he return to the Mets next season, if he does not receive a 3-year contract? What adjustments will hitters make to his pitching style next season?
The one thing that will remain unchanged is his work ethic. Commenting on his determination to keep winning, Dickey during an interview with The Star Ledger stated, ““I always did hope for things that seemed unattainable to most. And those are the things that kept driving me to want to be better.”
Hopefully, the Mets will find a way to keep the superstar knuckleballer in uniform next season.
