Day after no-hitter, R.A. Dickey settles for shutout

R.A. Dickey

R.A. Dickey couldn’t match Johan Santana‘s feat on Saturday, but he did give the Mets back-to-back shutouts for the second time in eight days.

Dickey pitched a seven-hitter for his third career shutout as the Mets topped the Cardinals 5-0 on Saturday. He’s won six straight and is now tied for the major league lead in victories at 8-1 with a 2.69 ERA for the season.

Thanks to Santana and Dickey, the Mets have recorded four shutouts in seven games.  Santana notched two of them by himself. The Mets also won 2-0 behind Dickey against the Padres last Sunday, though the bullpen got the final five outs that day.

    Since I’m a Phils fan, I’m supposed to hate all Mets, but I can’t help but root for Dickey. Glad he’s having a good year.

      It’s early. They’re still the Mutts, remember?

    I’m having a cheesesteak in your honor, as I am a Mets fan.

      It’s a long season. There’s no reason to punish your cardiovascular system with horrible horsemeat and Velveeta™ sandwiches.

    The NL East and AL East divisions are crazy this year.

    All 10 teams are over .500. Only 3 games separate first and last in the AL East; 3.5 games in the NL East.

    All 10 teams also have positive run differentials on the season aside from, surprisingly, the Mets, who have a -11 differential but who are nonetheless in 2nd place.

    Dickey is a great story. Here’s hoping he starts the All Star game and keeps the Mets in the race.
