R.A. d!ckey was formally introduced as a Toronto Blue Jay Tuesday and lobbed a floating knuckleball maybe more like high-and-inside fastball at his former team the New York Mets.

d!ckey said he is thankful the Mets did not meet his contract demands and he is thrilled to join the Blue Jays, a team he said is "all in" to win the World Series.

The Blue Jays showed off their new pitcher at Rogers Centre after acquiring the National League Cy Young winner from the Mets last month.

The 38-year-old knuckleballer admitted the Mets helped him cultivate his pitching style but said he was glad to move on.

d!ckey, who signed a $30 million, three-year deal, took a backhanded parting shot at the Mets by saying if Toronto doesn't win, it won't be because Alex Anthopoulos didn't try. The Blue Jays general manager had a busy off-season and also acquired high profile studs like shortstop Jose Reyes, and pitchers Josh Johnson and Mark Buerhle to go with the signing of d!ckey.

"You can see that he's made all the moves that he made," d!ckey said. "If we don't win it won't be because of him."

If d!ckey's comment was a jab at the Mets front office, Anthopoulos added a hook. Speaking about the Mets offer of two years, $20 million to d!ckey, the Jays GM told him it was beneath d!ckey's dignity to accept such an offer.

"I even told him this when I met him," Anthopoulos said. "I didn't think he got the respect he deserved."

Th GM went on to thank the Mets for making d!ckey available.

"Guys like this don't come around very often," said Anthopoulos. "And they don't get traded very often."

It sounds like d!ckey is going to enjoy his six months a year north of the border with the vastly improved Blue Jays.

"I think this could be a few special years for this city, this this country and the players," he said.

if everyone plays to their potential this team could be great for a few years, have to wait and see what happens.

n*gga you're 38 and the Mets aren't going anywhere anytime soon. You weren't getting anything over 2yrs. Kinda suprised we offered that. You had a dream year and cashed out, be happy and shut the fu*k up. You're not Greg Maddux.
