Doesn't Dickey count as a "tough righty?" They took care of him pretty good Wednesday night. I bet scanning game logs would show some other handling of tough righties also. I'd say Harvey benefitted from his first time through the league with above average stuff.
I imagine they will handle it like they have in the season as an elite team themselves.
