Podcast: R.A. Dickey, power rankings

Eric Karabell and Mark Simon were joined by special guest R.A. Dickey, the Mets' knuckleballer and author, on Monday's Baseball Today podcast. After a crazy opening weekend you know there was plenty to discuss.

1. The Mets are 3-0 and R.A. talks about the good start and how it’s not a surprise inside the clubhouse. He also talks about his different knuckleballs, his writing process and the courage to write about the sexual abuse he suffered as a child in his new book, "Wherever I End Up: My Quest for Truth, Authenticity and the Perfect Knuckleball."

2. The Red Sox and Yankees are off to bad starts and Joe Girardi had a bad weekend with some questionable moves.

3. The Orioles are off to a good start while the Cardinals and Tigers also impress early.

4. Eric and Mark discuss their power rankings. Mark is all over the Tigers but Eric isn't ready to put them No. 1 just yet. And they don't agree on No. 30 either.

5. Plus emails, previewing Monday's games including a certain pitcher in Texas making his debut and much, much more!
