Baseball Almanac Top Quote

Phil Niekro , never knew. 'I had a few streaks, but nothing like he’s going through,” said Niekro , a Hall of Famer with 318 victories. 'I don’t know if any other knuckleballer has ever been on a hot streak like he has been. He is just dynamite right now.'" - Staff Writer Tyler Kepner in The New York Times (06/16/2012, 'Otherworldly Pitch Meets Its Jedi Master', Source )

Did you know that on June 13, 2012 , R.A. Dickey set the New York Mets franchise record for consecutive scoreless innings pitched with 32 2/3, breaking Jerry Koosman's 39-year-old mark by one full inning? Mets skipper Terry Collins said after the record was broken, "I've never seen anything like this. Never. I've seen some dominant pitching, but nothing like what he's going through right now."

On August 17, 2008 , R.A. Dickey tied the American League record for most wild pitches in an inning with four. His "rough" fifth inning tied the mark originally set by Hall of Famer Walter Johnson (September 21, 1914) then tied by Kevin Gregg on July 25, 2004 .

In 2012, R.A. Dickey led the National League in strikeouts (230 / Top 25 ), complete games (5 / Top 25 ), shutouts (3 / Top 25 ), games started (33) and innings pitched (233.2). His dominating performance (from the start of the season to the end of the season) helped Dickey get named to his first career All-Star Game , win the Sporting News Pitcher of the Year Award , win the Players Choice Outstanding Pitcher of the Year Award , and became the first knuckleball pitcher in big league history to win the Cy Young Award .
