I am not a Dickey believer I guess. I expect at least a modest regression this season, particularly moving to the AL East. Citi Bank is definitely a friendly place than Rogre Center.

I also see d'Armaud as a potential middle of the order contributor who is probably ready to play in the big leagues this season.

This is every bit what we gave up for Roy Halladay and I definitely don't view Dickey in the same way as I viewed Halladay, particularly considering you were talking about a decade of greatness versus 2 and a half seasons and a significant different in age.
