R.A. Dickey left last week’s start after injuring his foot covering first base and was diagnosed with a partially torn plantar fascia, but he threw a problem-free bullpen session Sunday and has been cleared to take his scheduled turn in the rotation tonight.

In addition to throwing over the weekend Dickey also tested the foot injury by participating in fielding drills, telling Spencer Fordin of MLB.com that he doesn’t think there’s much risk of making the injury worse and “it’s definitely something you can play through.”

He’ll face James McDonald and the Pirates tonight in New York.

    Awright. Glad to hear the most literate man in MLB is still in action.

    Will someone please go check BC’s mom’s basement and tell him to get up and make some sort of comment?

      Here’s an interesting exercise in deconstruction! (pull the curtain, Jacques).

      The term fascism comes from the bound sheaf of wheat (fascia) that Italian farmers (planters) used to stack up in their fields during harvest time. Therefore, we may interpret the headline of this thread as meaning that R. A. Dickey, being educated and literate, has been forced into an heroic act of physical endurance in the face of Bernie Madoff, the Wilpons and their collective right-wing neofascist conspiracy to cripple him and still his revolutionary voice – but this just another example of left-wing propaganda being propounded by the liberals at MSNBC and the hairless running dog who created Circling the Bases in the first place.

        I do believe we have the foreword to the Revolution’s manifesto right there. “Hairless Running Dog” = ROFLMAO

    I like Dickey. Too bad he’s on the Mets.
