"In order to fill the great expanse between October and February a lot of blogs either go dormant altogether or rely on fluff pieces that may amuse the hoi polloi but generally don't add much in the way of intelligent discourse. Welcome to the latter category."
In the spirit of relying upon fluff pieces, welcome to The Dickeys, the Amazin' Avenue 2011 Mets Awards. The Dickey is the most prestigious fictitious baseball award on the internet, but it's virtually assured that no actual Mets will be affected by the results.
Eight of us have placed our votes, and the winners of The Dickeys will be announced as follows.
