RA vs. CC

The matchup of the initials tonight on ESPN. While C.C. Sabathia is overrated (if you disagree, check this out) this will be a pretty good pitchers duel. Robert Allen Dickey is on a streak that has been touched by almost no one in MLB history, from Russ Ortiz to Sandy Koufax to Daniel Cabrera to Bob Gibson. Two straight one-hitters and every time he pitches, he seems to be setting a new record for insane dominance. As a Mets fan, it's so great to watch and it will be fun watching all the Yankee swings and misses tonight. I highly doubt he'll get to Orel Hershiser's scoreless inning streak of 59 (Dickey's at 42.2 now) but he might get close. The only thing that worries me is that the Yankees are a big home run hitting team, and one good swing could mean trouble for Dickey, but he's R.A. Dickey, he'll find a way around it.

Let's Go Mets.
