Brangelina. Tomkat. Dickeas.
The latest celebrity romance of catcher Mike Nickeas and pitcher R.A. Dickey has officially ended. They won’t be throwing or catching together anymore, although their publicists confirm the two will remain “good friends.” Nickeas reportedly called for the split, and although Dickey shook him off, the two have gone their separate ways. Insiders attribute the breakup to the recent call-up of a now-healthy Ronny Paulino.
Dickey and Nickeas’ relationship dates back to 2005 when Nickeas was a Ranger minor leaguer catching Dickey’s knuckling cheddar in Spring Training. Mike is now headed back to Buffalo, and Dickey will do his best to hide hid his broken heart.
“We had something special… magical… [and I] will never forget my time with Mark Nickeas.”
