Quote of the Day: R.A. Dickey is happy to be with an organization that’s “committed to winning”

51 Comments

Normally I wouldn’t think much of it, but after a week of some snippy back and forths between the Mets and R.A. Dickey, I’m gonna assume that his comments at his introductory presser with the Blue Jays —  were a slam at the Mets:

“I can’t tell you how excited I am to be a part of an organization that’s committed to winning.”

He didn’t say “actually” between “that’s” and “committed” but I choose to hear it in his tone.

Of course, whether paying a 38 year-old pitcher for three years shows a greater commitment to winning than bringing in a couple of great young prospects who could be part of good Mets teams for a while is an open question. But probably not to someone in Dickey’s position.
