    Imagine if Flores can pick up LF well this year. Sign Ellsbury in the offseason. Go into 2014 with a lineup like this

    CF-Ellsbury
    SS-Tejada
    3B-Wright
    1B-Ike
    RF-Olt
    LF-Flores
    2B-Murphy
    C-Thole

    Harve-Niese-Wheeler-Mejia-Gee

    We could actually be worth something!

    There have been reports on these forums lately saying Olt is a poor runner. How would he play the outfield in Citi, then?

    I don't think he turned down that deal. I think there were talks about a potential deal if Texas missed out on their other targets.

    Dickey is a 38 year old pitcher who won the Cy Young for us in 2012. If he was 28 years old, I would feel differently, but the odds of him continuing at his level in 2012 are not good. We have plenty of pitching talent to trade him to the highest bidder. If Olt is being offered, you take him. It would be gross mismanagement by SA to have any different outcome. This is real life, not some fantasy league. We are trying to build for the future and Olt probably has a lot more years of good ball in him than Dickey.

    Since you said the Dodgers weren't done, I assumed you meant they were going to pursue Dickey, since this is an R.A Dickey thread in the Mets forum.

    The same way Duda did, I'm assuming. But scouting reports say that Olt was very swift at third and has a very good arm, so at least we know we would be putting some athleticism out there, not someone who obviously belongs at first base.

    Six or seven teams looking to meet with Mets on Dickey

    Does Tex have a decent catcher they
    could package with Olt

    Jorge Alfaro is the best catching prospect they have. He's only 19, but K's so so much. He has been projected to be an average-above average player.

    I'd rather try to get someone who is closer to major league ready.

    Texas might want thole with Dickey since he has been able to learn how to catch the unique pitch of Dickey

    Yeah they could always move Wright to LF when he's like 35, and move Olt back to 3B.

    Could Jesus martino be someone we could target for our solid staff for years?

    I wish we could get Olt and Martin. Gives us 2 starting OFer's instead of 1

    We would be looking at a core of Olt, Martin, Ike, Wright, Tejada in the field and Harvey, Wheeler, Niese in the rotation. Wed have a chance to build on that and compete
