Run support is as misleading as wins. I was not in favor of felix winning a couple years back. If you know you team's offense sucks, you better pitch better to win.
It is a lot harder to win when you are expected to win or have to win for your team. Dickey has never been in that place this year. Dickey has been winning for himself.
13th is not all that bad. 13 out of what 64 full time starting pitchers in the nl? And again, Dickey does pitch in a pitchers park. Considering his ERA 4.66 runs a game means he should win almost all his games
