I already said Wright, but I suppose Torres and Johan are there. Kirk isn't even on the team, and I don't know where the heck you get the idea that any of those other guys are better athletes. Because they're black? I don't get it. Anyway, the point was that he's a very athletic guy.

As Dickey ages more, he might not be able to pitch as well through the injuries, or he might sustain an injury he can't pitch through. Who knows?
The sport is different, but we're still talking about human beings. Again, the point was that if NBA players can play into their late 30s and early 40s, then so can an MLB pitcher.
You can't compare baseball players to NBA players, it's much different.
I think you figured out that argument out of nowhere. Holy cow. He's been working on the pitch for years, and he had plenty of people helping him because they believed in him along the way.
Dickey had a poor career and wasn't good the season before he came to the Mets. He figured out the pitch out of nowhere, and no one expected him to do anything.
And you expect to make up the difference by trading Dickey? I don't.
Our starting pitching will be great. Our hitting and bullpen will still likely suck, so we need help to make the playoffs, let alone the WS. The Mets play in the NL East, not the NL West so it's harder for us to make it.
