Blue Jays knuckler Dickey exercises patience
By KEN FIDLIN, QMI Agency


Blue Jays' R.A. Dickey gave up three Phillies runs in the first inning yesterday in Dunedin, Fla.


You can’t help thinking how a guy like R.A. Dickey, with his legacy of failure and fractured expectations, must revel in being a made-man at spring training, existing in that fantasyland where process trumps results.

In this superstar phase of a baseball career that has also plumbed the depths of despair, Dickey has the privilege of ignoring a scoreboard.

Surrender three runs in the first inning? Don’t worry, be happy.
