Great Moments in Reading the Tea Leaves: R.A. Dickey Edition

15 Comments

R.A. Dickey is doing a nice thing tomorrow. He’s playing an elf to John Franco’s Santa in the Mets’ annual holiday party for schoolchildren. Adam Rubin notes that this year’s party will bring in students from Far Rockaway who have been affected by Hurricane Sandy.

Ian O’Connor thinks it means something:

 

Or, quite possibly, it’s just a nice gesture from a man who has shown many past philanthropic impulses and a team that is admirably separating its baseball operations from its community operations.

Not saying Dickey doesn’t stay in New York, but I’m thinking an actual news report to that effect as opposed to who is wearing an elf suit when is a little more authoritative.
