I think we should send every Mets pitcher mountain climbing next offseason. That, and they need to throw a knuckleball.
All I know is that the plan worked for R.A. Dickey, who just tossed his second consecutive complete game, one-hit shutout. The Mets beat the Orioles 5-0. In cast you are wondering, Dave Steib of the Blue Jays was the last to toss back-to-back one-hitters.
We’re looking at a degree of specialness associated with Tom Seaver and Dwight Gooden at their peak.
Dickey even kicked off the scoring by getting the hit that helped set up Ike “I’m back!” Davis’s grand slam!
That means Caroline gets to hoist the Flag of Victory in celebration!
