PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. — If R. A. Dickey felt any anxiety Tuesday as reporters approached him at his locker, he did not let it show. With his familiar forthright demeanor, with teammates in earshot, he answered one question after another about being sexually abused as a child, and cheating on his wife as an adult, all of it revealed in his newly published memoir
