Believe it or not, Dickey's start Saturday against the Marlins could be a pretty big milestone. The day his career ERA finally falls below the ever important 4.00 threshold. Before coming to the Mets Dickey was a pretty bad pitcher, arriving with a 5.43 ERA. Even as he tacked up good seasons in New York it was always painful to have to cite career statistics which were constantly driven down due to his poor years.
With a decent start this weekend R.A. finally, after three seasons of great pitching, can have a career ERA to be proud of.
