RA Dickey will next start Tuesday… Hopefully it’ll be humid.

Terry Collins said Tuesday night that RA Dickey will again start next Tuesday, after which he will have four more starts the rest of the season.

“We’re trying to win games and I know he’s a big factor,” Collins said after Tuesday’s loss.

“You don’t know when you’re going to break out of it and when you’re going to score,” Collins said, in regards to the team’s weak offense over the last few weeks. “We could have left RA out there (to try and get the win), but we’re not here to abuse anybody either.”

Collins said Dickey prefers to pitch when it is more humid than it was tonight, as he tends to be a better pitcher in that climate.

“There’s no question about it,” Collins stated. “Warmer weather is more conducive for him.”
