Mets’ R.A. Dickey Wins Cy Young

At least this will distract New York sports fans from the Jets drama. Mets pitcher R.A. Dickey won the National League Cy Young Award on Wednesday, the first player from the franchise to win since Doc Gooden in 1985. Dickey had a 2.73 ERA and 20 wins in 2012, the first Met to pass that milestone since 1990. In the American League, the Tampa Bay Rays’ David Price won Cy Young. Price had a 20-5 record and a 2.56 ERA and came oh-so-close to getting a Triple Crown in 2012, but fell one category short.
