Honestly Dickey was good this year... but thats been it. I don't have the confidence in him that I'd want to pay him 13-15 mill per year until he's 40.

Great pitcher, but I'd be strongly hesitant to add to Arencibia.
Reports are he is seeking a 20 million extension for 2 more years added. So that`s 3 years and 25 million total for a guy who just won the Cy Young award. Money wise, I don`t think it gets any better than that. Rickey Romero makes similar money. Yea, it`s kind of a risk if he all of a sudden goes from Cy Young winner to absolute garbage, but Knuckleballers usually last a lot longer. not as taxing on the arm to throw 60 mile per hour and I think he will be solid for a couple more years.
