    We get Olt and sign a solid bat in the 2014 offseason, then you add guys we already have in Wright, Ike, Flores, Tejada, Murphy...looks like a solid lineup.

    Olt would make a great fielding replacement for Wright later on in his career. I'm sold. I want him.

    Pull the trigger Sandy

    We have a golden opportunity to get a quality young prospect in return for Dickey. Please don't be stupid here....trade our 38 year old pitcher for a potential superstar NOW. Our future is not with Dickey as nice a guy as he is. We need to sell now since he is worth a ton in trade value!

    I never said anything about a trade, I just said the dodgers are not done and I can see them signing sanchez or lohse with the spending limits they are given.

    Wow! So you know exactly what deal is on the table and for what potential superstar? Care to share your sources and details?

    Is there any chance Olt can play SS in the majors?

    Did the Mets really turn down Olt for Dickey? I'd assume this is just posturing, and Sandy is trying to get a bidding war going. But if that doesn't work, he has to take Olt imo.

    Pretty much all scouting reports are saying that Olt is a future .270-275 hitter who can hit 30 homers. He's also a stud defensively at 3B and has the arm/decent speed to be a decent fielding corner OFer.

    Seems like an Ike Davis type bat who can fill our outfield holes. I would pull the trigger.

    I would try to get more.
