Congrats to R.A. Dickey, 2012 NL Cy Young

Very deserving. Was really rooting for this guy.

Fun fact: Both CY Young Winners are from Middle Tennessee and went to Vanderbilt and Tennessee.

I read his autobiography recently and I have a great respect for him. Used to watch him pitch in high school at MBA. Congrats!!

Great news. He deserves it. It's impressive. Especially considering how bad the Mets were.

Way to go, R.A.!! So proud of this guy, who has re-invented himself as a pitcher. His knuckleball is quite unique, even among knucklers.

Happy for him. He worked so long to learn the kncuckler and get his chance.

Go Vols.

Anyone else think it would be very cool to honor both of the Cy Young winners on the field at the UT-Vandy game this weekend? Not only are they both from the Nashville area, but they also represent both schools.

Simply amazing year that he's had. Had a blast watching guys like him, Helton, and Bubba Trammell play in the early/mid 90s.

More amazing is that Phil Niekro never won a Cy Young.

I wish I could have been there to see that. My espn pass didn't show it either, how good was the reception? Did he say anything? What did he say?
