Part 2 Extended interview was not on television
I knew at some point Stewart would touch on the very obvious fact... he's brighter than your average ballplayer. It was a great interview and you can always tell Dickey has a capability to earn peoples respect and admiration even during brief conversations.
Wish I could meet him.
I understand all the comments from fans here who say that trading Dickey is the best (or only) way to make the Mets better.
But there is more to being a fan than wanting your team to win a championship. There is also the pride of knowing that its players are outstanding individuals - role models for your children and also for yourself.
You can't get much better in this regard than with people like Dickey and Wright. That they also happen to be the two best players on the team is a huge bonus. People like this don't come around very often.
I need to stop watching R A Dickey interviews, I go from thinking what is the best for the Mets to forget Meyers, forget D'arnaud, I don't care who they give I want to keep Dickey, every time I hear him talk.
I like Wright and all but he is such a bore in his interviews, Dickey on the other hand I would pay to hear him talk.
