Still though, even if he regresses to a 3.50era 1.20whip 150k pitcher he is still a solid number 2/3 pitcher and a major major upgrade on what we had last season.
Dickey's last stint in the AL was as a conventional pitcher, with below average velocity.
All we know is that since becoming a knuckleballer, he is 7-0 against the american league. Not much to go on, but like you said, even if his play drops he's still a better option than Carlos Villaneuva and Aaron Laffey.
