Remember the “R.A. Dickey is a self-promoter” meme from December? That was crystallized in this Ken Davidoff column in the New York Post?

Dickey can be a handful. He clearly has enjoyed his rise from the ashes into a Flushing folk hero, and while he deserves praise and riches, there’s also the matter of him having to coexist peacefully in a workplace. His gift for self-promotion and his love of attention don’t endear himself to most teammates.

Well, that egocentric self-promoter is at it again!

 

 

Typical Dickey. “Me, me, me.” God.
