Congratulations R.A, Dickey on your 20th Win

I would have loved to be at Citifield today, but I had to go to work.  Somebody has to pay the bills :).  I was able to follow the game on and off by looking at  R.A. left the game in the 8th inning with a 6-3 lead.  Jon Rauch gave up a two run home in the top of the 9th, but Bobby Parnell held on to get the save as the Mets held on to win 6-5 to give Dickey his 20th victory.  He is the first Met 20 game winner since Frank Viola in 1990.  I sure hope he stays with the Mets for a few more years.  I highly recommend his autobiography to my readers.  I think there will be an updated edition covering the 2012 season.
