RA Dickey is Chewbacca

Tell me you don't see the comparison? On TV the comparison is much more noticeable especially with the flowing hair coming out of the bottom of Dickey's hat.

In any case, the Mets Wookie wowed the Phillies lineup with his knuckleball and was able to contain their powerful bats pitching 6 shutout innings.

Dickey was a guy I had zero faith in, but after a performance like that it's hard not to see Dickey as a serviceable 5th starter let alone a last minute replacement. Of course the Mets bats coming alive and hitting with runners in scoring position tends to give confidence to any pitcher but it will be interesting to see if Dickey can make a repeat performance during his next start.

Long live the Wookie.
