The Mets should be thinking about locking Dickey up for a couple of years. Something along the lines of 3 years 7.5 million. RA Dickey could very well be the Met's Tim Wakefield. He competes, messes up opposing hitters, has no ego and could start or relieve.
If a gun was to my head and the Mets had to win a game right now I would want RA Dickey to start the game for us. Especially if it was at CitiField. Hitters have to supply all the power vs. a knuckler and it is making great hitters look ordinary (Cabrera).
If Moyer & Wakefield can be effective at their ages then Dickey can be as well. I truly hope the Mets lock him up and get our Tim Wakefield.
