R.A. Dickey Wins National League Cy Young

Ladies and gentlemen, your 2012 National League Cy Young award winner!

By now you've heard the story. First one cut in 2010 to a 20-game winner, All-Star, and Cy Young winner in 2012, with the climbing of Mt. Kilimanjaro thrown in there for good measure (Actually, it was for a good cause).

I'm not going to over-analyze this. He was the best and rewarded for it (That's over-simplifying it, but I don't care). Let's all just take a moment to enjoy the fact that something good happened to a Mets player.

Tom Seaver and Dwight Gooden, both of whom won the Cy Young award while playing for the Mets (Seaver won it three times, while Gooden won it in 1985), released statements congratulating Dickey on his award.
Tom Seaver:
"My hats off to Mr. Dickey. I watched one of his outings when I was in town and I was amazed by his control. I was always looking for new ammunition to bring to the mound so I attempted the knuckleball. It's a very difficult pitch to throw and needless to say, I never mastered it. I congratulate him on his tenacity not only to succeed against all odds but to excel and achieve this very high honor. I look forward to congratulating him personally." 
Dwight Gooden:
"I saw R.A. pitch at least 10 times this year. I'm really amazed how he was able to remake his career. I never even thought about throwing a knuckleball. To win the Cy Young Award at his age is more incredible than when I was at age 20."
Congratulations, R.A. Well deserved.
