    Alderson is a very competent GM. He probably should have traded Reyes, yes. But he is a fantastic GM, he was responsible for the A's of the late 90's and really brought in sabr-metrics for the Moneyball book and movie (even though Beane is credited)

    The task at hand is for Alderson to see where the market stands for Dickey.

    I think if fans of other teams were in our position they would be looking for their GM to do the same thing.

    No. If we do I will cry.

    First of all, I'm not a fan of Dickey at all, and him coming to the AL East makes it worse. I hate knuckleballers, I don't care if he's the CY Young winner. His peripherals also were not extremely elite, TORP stuff until just this year, so do not tell me that he's been TORP ever since he transitioned into knuckle balling. High 3 almost 4 peripherals don't indicate a TORP, and after losing Nicolino, I don't think AA will move Syndegaard or Sanchez. Atleast, I hope he doesn't.

    Era of under 3 over the last three years.

    I'm not sure the Mets would even make that deal.

    I can't see them moving Syndergaard, D'Arnaud, Gose or Sanchez for anyone that close to 40 years old.

    But to be honest, in the event that the Jays do actually acquire R.A Dickey. I expect something like this to occur:

    Daniel Norris
    JP Arencibia
    Anthony Gose
    Drew Hutchison

    for

    RA Dickey

    Do I want this to happen? No. Again, I really don't want Dickey, but I think something like this may happen.

    Yes because ERA reflects on a pitchers ability most accurately.

    His FIP over the last 3 year is barely above 3.5...

    He's been a good pitcher for the Met since coming over in 2010.

    All the peripherals were very good last year too.

    The knuckleball has gotten better and better over the last 3 seasons.

    On a knuckleballer, yes. Knuckleballers outperform their FIP's. Look it up for yourself.

    No. No. No.

    I love Daniel Norris with all my heart, even through he is a religious nut.

    JPA + Hutchison for Dickey. Final offer.

    And by the way, those pants, they belong to my dad.And they're not really pants,
    they're Lederhosen
