R.A. Dickey wins NL Cy Young
Dickey won the National League Cy Young on Wednesday, becoming the first knuckleballer to receive the honor.
Dickey, who went 20-6, received 27-of-32 first-place votes and 209 overall points in balloting by the Baseball Writers' Association of America. Los Angeles Dodgers left-hander Clayton Kershaw finished second with two first-place votes and 96 points, followed by Washington Nationals left-hander Gio Gonzalez, who received one first-place vote and 93 points.
"Clayton and Gio were both just supernatural in the way that they perform," Dickey told MLB Network. "I've had to hit against them both, and it is ridiculous trying to pick up the ball on those guys. They gave everybody fits. Just being mentioned in the same breath as those guys is an honor.Trade Bucket: Hidden Content

Congrats R.A. One bright spot in a miserable Mets season. I had the pleasure of seeing his 1-hitter against the Orioles- which was as close to a play-off atmosphere as it has been in Citi Field history.The few. The proud. The Met fans.
1969 Mets 31/31- It took 3 1/2 years but it's finished! Thanks to those who helped!
