R.A. Dickey will be honored at the Thurman Munson Awards next month


Mets pitcher R.A. Dickey will be honored next month at the Thurman Munson Awards in New York City, the Mets announced Thursday. Named after the late Yankees catcher and administered in part by his widow, Diane, who has attended 31 straight ceremonies, the awards honor "on-field excellence and community service" in the New York sports community.

This year's awards banquet will also recognize Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira, basketball Hall of Famer Chris Mullin and Yankees Hall of Famer Yogi Berra, who will receive the Munson Legend Award during the Jan. 31 ceremony in Manhattan.

Both outspoken and active throughout his career in support of community service

Final Score: St. Louis 3, NY Mets 2 

Gerald Laird's sacrifice fly in the seventh inning scored the go-ahead run, as the St. Louis Cardinals rallied for a 3-2 win over the New York Mets in a Grapefruit League game.

The Cardinals trailed 2-0 heading to the bottom of the third, but Jon Jay ripped an RBI double in the inning to get them on the board and Matt Carpenter added an RBI double in the sixth to tie the game.

Tyler Greene led off the seventh with a single, moved to second on Jay's bunt and third on Adron Chambers' single and then scored when Laird flew out to center field.

Jake Westbrook started for the Cardinals and threw two innings, giving up RBI singles to Ruben Tejada and Luis Castillo. Westbrook yielded five hits and a walk, striking out one. Jason Motte got the win with two scoreless innings.

Mets starter R.A. Dickey allowed one run on three hits in three innings, striking out four in a no-decision. Josh Stinson took the loss, giving up runs in the sixth and seventh innings.

R.A. Dickey and Mets have agreed on a two year deal


R. A. Dickey
According to Andy Martino, the Mets and R.A. Dickey avoided arbitration by agreeing to a two-year contract with a club option for 2013, pending a physical.

The new deal covers his final arbitration season and at least his first year of free agency. Exact terms aren’t yet known, but Dickey requested $4.7 million and was offered $3.35 million from the Mets when arbitration figures were exchanged last Tuesday.

The 36-year-old knuckleballer was a revelation for the Mets last season, posting a 2.84 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 104/42 K/BB ratio over 174 1/3 innings.

I’m expecting something in the range of two years and $8-9 million, maybe a little more in the form of a buyout. If Dickey can prove that last season wasn’t a fluke, the Mets will have done very well here.

UPDATE: Andy Martino of the New York Daily News reports that including the option and potential incentives, Dickey could make $13 million over the length of the contract.
