Dickey is 38 years old and his value has never been higher. The Mets have glaring holes at catcher and every single outfield position and more likely than not aren't going to compete this year. It's almost a no brainer to make a deal and get top prospects for Dickey. I'd completely agree with you if Dickey was 10 years younger but that isn't the case here.

If this deal goes through, we'll have some solid prospects in Wheeler, Harvey, and d'Arnaud to go along with our core of Niese, Wright, and Ike. This team is going in the right direction IMO and that's the first time I can say that in about 6 years.
