R.A. Dickey’s farewell letter

Thank you for three fun seasons & good luck in Toronto, R.A. Dickey. #mets #bluejays #baseballI’m guessing that my fellow Mets fans have seen R.A. Dickey‘s farewell letter in the Daily News today, but  in case you missed it:

From the beginning of last season to the end — when you cheered with all you had that Thursday afternoon when I won my 20th game — I felt that this was a shared journey, that we were all in it together. What a great way for an athlete to feel…. I hope you know that I will never forget my three years in New York, and never be able to adequately thank you for everything you’ve given me.

I was stuck at work, so I didn’t get to watch Dickey win his 20th. I was at Citi Field for his second consecutive one-hitter against the Baltimore Orioles this year, and it’s one of my favorite memories at the new ballpark.

I hope that Dickey wins another Cy Young Award with Toronto, and I hope that the prospects he was traded for help the Mets win another World Series championship.
