- Dickey pitched the best game of his career on Wednesday throwing a complete game one-hitter against the Rays. He struck out 12, and improved his ERA to 2.20 for the season. He is the beneficiary of an 81.3 percent strand rate and .258 BABIP, but his DIPS do not foretell much regression in 2012. He has averaged a .277 BABIP over the last two seasons, and a 12 point increase during the year should not affect his ERA considering his batted ball rate is nearly identical to last season. His career best strikeout rate of 9.00 K/9 is not a fluke considering he has improved his swinging strike rate to a career best 12.6 percent. His walk (1.90 BB/9) and ground ball rates (51.8 percent) are exactly the kind one would expect from a top tier pitcher. I find it amazing that he is still available in 12 percent of Yahoo leagues.
