R.A. Dickey

The 2012 season was one general moment of glory for the journeyman knuckleballer that climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro in the offseason, wrote a book, and then emerged as one of the most dominant pitchers of 2012. Dickey finished 2012 20-6 with a 2.73 E.R.A and led the National League with 230 strikeouts. Dickey's best stretch of the season came from the end of the May and all through June, where he recorded double-digit strikeouts in five of eight starts and won seven of those eight starts.
