R.A. Dickey says he was ready to make his start on schedule Friday, but Toronto Blue Jays management decided to give him and his fellow starters extra rest.
That was the question, whether or was the team being cautious or if Dickey was still feeling groin tightness. You still have to take his word with a grain of salt as few players are ever up-front or honest about their condition. In this case, it's probably a little from Column A and a little from Column B. He should be fine to make his start,ANALYST: Howard Bender
