Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey wins fifth straight
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(8/23/15) R.A. Dickey was the beneficiary of the Blue Jays' explosive offense, picking up another win despite a shaky start Sunday against the Angels.
Dickey was in trouble early, throwing 39 pitches and giving up five runs in the first inning alone. But he settled down after that, finishing his night after going six innings and allowing 11 hits, and Toronto's offense took care of the deficit with no issue.
The win moves Dickey to 8-10 on the year, and he has now won five straight decisions over the course of seven starts.

Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey receives win in Wednesday's start
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(8/12/15) Blue Jays pitcher R.A. Dickey was back in the win column after producing a quality start in Wednesday's 10-3 win over the A's.

Dickey is now 7-10 with a 3.96 ERA and has won four of his last five starts.

Blue Jays' R.A. Dickey takes no-decision, snapping win streak
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(8/7/15) Blue Jays starter R.A. Dickey allowed one run over seven innings, but he left with the game tied and took a no-decision, Friday against the Yankees.
Dickey has allowed two runs or fewer in his last six starts. The no-decision snapped a string of wins in his last three starts. Dickey still hasn't lost since July 9, a string of five starts.
Dickey also gave up a home run for the first time since July 9.
|2014 summary: His Cy Young season now two years behind him, R.A. Dickey was remarkably ordinary for an extraordinary pitcher in 2014, powerknuckling his way to a 14-13 record and 3.71 ERA for the Blue Jays. He remained an innings eater, delivering his fourth straight season with 200-plus, but these days it takes more than that to set a player apart at starting pitcher.|
Playing time status: At age 40, Dickey has reached the stage of his career where injuries should be the expectation, which of course works against his greatest attribute, the whole innings-eater thing. His low-effort arsenal could help him defy Father Time, as is true for all knuckleballers, but given the lack of upside, why give him the benefit of the doubt?
2015 outlook: It's not that Dickey is a bad pitcher. He may not be as good as he was during his Cy Young season, but he's about like he was during the two years prior. It's just that the starting pitcher landscape has changed so much since then that he's buried behind a bunch of strikeout-per-inning, low-WHIP types. In deeper Head-to-Head points leagues, where a consistent six or seven innings really is still valuable, he's a decent pick late, but otherwise, you wouldn't be wrong to pass him up entirely.
