Let me ask you this Dug, the way this team is currently constructed do they make the playoffs in 2013? If your answer is no then they need to trade Dickey now and get something for him while his value is high instead of offering an insulting 2/20 for the reigning N.L. Cy Young winner.
Playoffs? Nope. That's a little premature.
Knowing the overall *shape* of an idea, argument, situation requires as many facts, models, opinions as you can take/make to see a whole.
