New York Mets pitcher R.A. Dickey went 20-6 and posted a 2.73 ERA in 2012. His win total and ERA were 2nd in the National League. Dickey also led the NL in strikeouts with 230. R.A.

Dilfer now spends his time as an NFL Analyst on ESPN. We ran this story on Dilfer back in the November 1998 issue of Sports Spectrum... It’s the third day of training camp. Trent Dilfer has just endured the day’s final two hours of practice in the Florida sun. He’s tired, the sun has scorched his head, and he misses his wife and two children, who are out of town.
