It took two losses to the Astros, but R.A. Dickey thinks maybe it's a reality check:
“We have to find a way to be honest with ourselves about what kind of team we are. We can’t keep telling ourselves, ‘Oh, we’re a better team than this.’ We may not be.
“We’ve got to be honest about that and identify what we’re doing wrong and do it better. That’s the only way you have any real growth. If we want to reach the destination that we have set out, then we’ve got to be honest with ourselves about how can we take more ownership and what’s going on around us.”
