Become so dominant at the age of 37?  Has he been doing those Roger Clemens head exercises?

he became so dominant because he finally released the demons within him after revealing to the world that he had been molested repeatedly as a child... I truly believe this is why he has become so dominant... his mind is now at ease and he can just pitch... as sad of a story as it is, the end of it all; meaning 30 years of silence regarding his childhood nightmares which were a reality, has resulted in one of the best stories in sports in years in my opinion.. i'm pulling for RA, hope he wins the cy young this year... he is a stand up guy and a trooper when it comes to life in general

I just want him to chill out and give up a few runs tonight.  I'll think nothing less of him even if he gives up a 3-4 spot.  :)

How was the O's team total set at 3 against Dickey? It should have been set at 1.5 


These guys won't even score 1 run. All Dickey games should have game totals set at 5.5 or 6 like an NL West game because the guy doesnt give up a run at all. How the game total was set at 7.5 in this game is beyond me. I need to look at Unders for all Dickey games which include both game and team total under.

1st time in 68 years a NL pitcher had back to back games with 1 hot or less.  Truly amazing

POD -  BAL/NYM UNDER 7.5 -115

Arrieta might have finally found something with a stellar 7 inning 1 run performance last week against pitt. Tonight he faces a mets lineup who couldnt hit a beach ball this weekend struggling mightily against cincy scoring 5 runs in 3 games. They failed in every facet of hitting and since most of these guys havent seen arrieta i dont expect it to be better tonight.  O's went under in all 3 games this weekend and the fact they have a stellar bullpen makes me like this one even more.  On the mets side they went under the last 2 in the cincy series with awful hitting score 2 runs the last 2 games and 5 all weekend. Luckily for them they have RA DICKEY on the mound tonight. Dickey has allowed no earned runs in 33 innings which is just ridiculous. In his last 4 starts dickey is 4-0 with a 0.00 era  33 ip 15 hits allowed 0 er 39 strikeouts and 3 walks. If u count the start before he has 50 strikeouts 4 walks and has allowed 1 earned run his last 5 starts. Under is 4-1 in his last 5 starts and the only reason it went over last week is cause the mets scored 9 runs. I see another stellar start by dickey tonight and i see arrieta holding the mets to 2 or less.
