Yeah because sexual abuse is soooooo funny, AP. Or is this a news organization that actually forgot about Dickey's other story and just wanted to make a 3rd-grader's pun out of his name?

I'm not new to Fark so I'm well aware of how low this can go, but at least until I get trolled, allow me to say AP ought to DIAF.

/ Or maybe EABOD. More appropriate and inappropriate at the same time.

I wish Dickey would grow a boss handlebar mustache. His pitching style and name scream 1880s baseball player to me.

Now that's how you get fired.

"Rough Up" yes, "Touch Up" no.

That doesn't make any sense.

Fun series this weekend. I was looking forward to last night all week and was a little disappointed.

Gunny Highway: Fun series this weekend. I was looking forward to last night all week and was a little disappointed.


Me too. Between the umpire's inconsistent strike-zone, his teammates and his own mistakes, and him becoming rattled, an excellent pitching duel got ruined.

I had no dog in this hunt, and it turned out to be a pretty good game anyway, but it wasn't what I was hoping for.

/was fun to see R.A. and C.C. pitch anyway

That's kind of a leap.

I missed the game but I heard they really got a hold of him and roughed him up...just smacked him around every chance they got. Got up behind him in the shower and went to work when a redhead walked in and did nothing about it.

Sorry: I've just been corrected. The batsman's HOLDING...

...the bowler's Willey. Or the other way around; both Michael Holding and Peter Willey were bowlers.

A couple of weeks ago, Mets vs. Nationals...the pitching matchup: Dickey vs. Wang

With how much they built up Dickey before the game, it was almost a goddamn guarantee that he wouldn't be nearly as dominant.

I had a feeling that the Yankees were going to rough up Dickey after they roughed up Johan who was in the midst of a hot streak a few weeks ago.

wait... so yankees abuse dickey?

this is news?

Yeah, I was readying my "nice unhittable pitcher you've got there, heh heh" headline.

This was just a hiccup - he'll be dominant again when he gets back to facing the NAAAtional League.

His one-hitters were against Tampa and Baltimore.

Good try, Mets. Here's a condescending pat on the top of the head for ya.

Fair enough, but I still expect what I said to be true. It had better be, because he's on my fantasy team.

I guess if they're going to use Cano in the headline, then, yes, he did "touch up" Dickey in that he had a single and a walk (to go with a flyout). He hit his mammoth (and game-winning) HR off Batista, though.

Swisher is the one who really ... what's the best way to say this ... oh heck, who really roughed up Dickey.

They don't call him Swish for nothing.

2-0 Yankees, bottom 1st.

robsul82: 2-0 Yankees, bottom 1st.


4-0, bottom 2nd

And off the bat of Wise no less. Maybe he's been better than I've seen, but that's the first time I've personally seen him do much.
 
2012-06-25 08:07:07 PM
Make it 5-0 Yankees, Cano solo HR.
 
2012-06-25 08:09:52 PM
6-0 bottom 3rd,
clearly this will end 18-0
 
2012-06-25 08:10:07 PM
How about 6-0 Yankees, The Lish hits a solo HR.

/srsly, he puts "The Lish" on his bats
