He threw that gimmick pitch and averaged 2 walks per 9 innings. That's unheard of before.
Doesn't change my feelings on the matter. Is there anyone saying they're excited to see Dickey grow and develop as a star pitcher over the next 5 years? Of course not. He's most likely a one-hit wonder and will be out of the league entirely in a few years. It's not even that far-fetched that he could totally flame out NEXT year.
There's no denying he's had an amazing season, but on some level I think the Cy Young has to be about more than that.
