Recommendation: Dickey became the first knuckleballer to win the prestigious award, finishing with 27 of the 32 first place votes. The 38-year-old had by far his best season in 2012, finishing with 20 wins (nine more than high previous career-high), he led the NL with 230 strikeouts, and was only behind Clayton Kershaw in the NL with a 2.73 ERA. The Mets have exercised their option on Dickey for next season, and they're reportedly making progress on an extension, but there have been murmurs that the club could move him.
