    NEW YORK (AP) -- R.A. Dickey languished in the minors for 14 years, bouncing from one team to another before finally perfecting that perplexing knuckleball that made him a major league star.

    David Price was the top pick in the draft and an ace by age 25, throwing 98 mph heat with a left arm live enough to make the most hardened scout sing.

    Raised only 34 miles apart in central Tennessee, Dickey and Price won baseball's Cy Young awards on Wednesday - one by a wide margin, the other in a tight vote.

    Two paths to the pantheon of pitching have rarely been more different.

    ''Isn't that awesome?'' said Dickey, the first knuckleballer to win a Cy Young. ''It just shows you there's not just one way to do it, and it gives hope to a lot of people.''.............

    Congrats to Dickey. He caught lightning this season. It's great to read these kinds of success stories. He is on a team I hate to hate LOL. Price, well that is a CY Young award many saw coming. Now the question is how many more does he win?
