Wakefield wasn't a fluke either since he pretty much carried the Pirates staff to the division down the stretch in 1992.

So what's your idea? Keep Dickey, let him pitch on a terrible team and then walk after 2014 for nothing?
No, my idea is not to trade him for garbage. Arencibia is awful. Get fair value.

I'll gladly do Dickey for D'Arnaud. If not, i'll enjoy watching an elite pitcher pitch for my team. The enjoyment from that'll be more than watching Arencibia and some other scrubs stink it up for a little bit.
