Just to show how little I follow baseball, this is the first time I've heard of either player involved in the trade lol
Thing with Dickey, AFAIK knuckleball pitchers' arms aren't at risk to injury because they don't put anywhere close to as much torque as a normal fastball pitcher does. Probably saves him a good 2-5 years. With the Yankees and Red Sox on a slight downfall.. Now is the time for the Jays to jump on it.
