Mets Get Dickey
In case you missed the news of the past few days:
The Red Sox may be back in play for Jason Bay
The Angels signed Fernando Rodney
The Pirates are in talks with Octavio Dotel
The Nationals agreed to terms with Matt Capps, and are on the verge of signing Eddie Guardado
The Orioles signed Mike Gonzalez and Garrett Atkins
The Cubs traded Milton Bradley to the Mariners for Carlos Silva
The Rangers signed Darren Oliver
The Yankees signed Nick Johnson
The Giants have made a strong offer to Mark DeRosa
The Phillies may have reached an agreement with a “reliever”
The Braves signed Troy Glaus (for the same salary the Mets gave Alex Cora)
The A’s signed Coco Crisp
And the Mets? Well, the Mets got Dickey. Knuckleballer R.A. Dickey, that is (what did you think I meant?).
Why does it feel like I just pulled a lump of coal out of my stocking?
