 If the Mets didn't have R.A. Dickey on the team this year, The Mets would be close to last place than they are  right now. The knuckleballer show more true grit than most of the Mets. Dickey is currently ranked seventh in the NL ERA (2.57). If Dickey keep pitching like this he may win a National League ERA title. He wants to stay with the organization that gave him the chance to turn his career around at the age of 35. He has a big feel for New York City. Dickey sees New York as future home for his family. Dickey has come along way since being called up from Triple-A Buffalo. He will be eligible for arbitration this winter after working for a bargain-rate $600,000 base salary, but no previous discussions between his agent and the Mets about an extension. Minaya and the Mets should offer two or three year contract to Dickey. Dickey is 35 years old and I think he has three good years left in his arm. Dickey is pitching better than the ace of the team Johan Santana. R.A. Dickey is one of a few bright lights for the Mets 2010 season.
