Thoughts Ahead Of Cy Young Award Big Reveal
Posted By Howard Megdal On November 14, 2012 @ 3:02 pm In Uncategorized | Comments Disabled
My feelings on seeing R.A. Dickey win the Cy Young Award tonight boil down to this: I hope it happens. If Clayton Kershaw wins instead, frankly, I can see it. But my vote, if I had one, would have gone to Dickey, because I see the two of them as roughly equal, and for me, how they got there is a perfectly legitimate tiebreaker.
That said, Dickey’s 2012 will matter to Mets fans for years to come, whether he wins tonight or not. The sheer pleasure of seeing someone come from nowhere to dominate in such an aesthetically pleasing way is essentially the pinnacle of one’s experience as a baseball fan, at least within the realm of individual accomplishment. It was spectacular.
Is tonight a last goodbye to a soon-traded Dickey? Is this when the Mets make a shock announcement that Dickey has been retained? It’s the Mets, so even things that are rote for other teams hold suspense for us.
Let’s hope for a happy ending. You can see it at 6:47 PM tonight over at SNY.
