Dickey be praised! The Mets cruised to a 2-0 victory and a 3-1 series win behind the fluttering knuckleball of R.A. Dickey. And while you might think Dickey couldn't possibly get more awesome, let me just point out he is now using the Game of Thrones theme as his at-bat music. The Mets offense didn't do much, but when you have R.A. Dickey on the mound, you only need to pull out enough to win. One run should do the trick. The Mets welcome the Phillies into town for three games starting today at 1:10 PM. Jon Niese opposes Coal Hammels. Adam Rubin has the series preview.
This is the start of a punishing stretch of games that will take the Mets through to the all-star break. Let's see what this team is made of. If they can come out the other side still six games over .500, I'll be ready to saddle up for meaningful games in September.
