They desperately need someone there, their fielding prospects suck as a whole. Suck it up for a year and then go to the ball park every ****ing game in 2-3 years when the Mets can contend.
You're ignoring the very high possibility that the prospects bust. Then we lose Dickey and we continue to suck even in a few years.

People act like real life is like a video game where potential is a known quantity and projecting the future is simple. It's not, especially in baseball. Dickey is the best player to come to the Mets since Piazza. It would be a mistake to just throw that away for a hope and a prayer.
