Link: Gee, Parnell Pitch In

 

Bobby Parnell and Dillon Gee

Mets right-handers Dillon Gee and Bobby Parnell participated in the food drive at Citi Field today.  The Mets held the event in conjuction with City Harvest to help Queens residents affected by Hurricane Sandy.

Parnell and Gee even had time to answer some questions about R.A. Dickey and the progress of Dillon’s arm.

“I haven’t even thought about it,” Gee said. “I finished the year throwing a couple of times. I’ve been working out for like three weeks now and I haven’t even thought about it.”

As for R.A. Dickey‘s candidacy for the Cy Young, Gee said: “There’s really not much else you can say about his season. It speaks for itself. It was unbelievable. It would definitely be cool to say I was teammates with a Cy Young Award winner and got to see him day in and day out, how he won it. It definitely would be good for everybody and just an uplifting thing and obviously great for him.”
