    Please trade Dickey!

    He is 38 years old...this is called selling high...Sandy, if you are any kind of smart, trade him now! Get a quality prospect or two in return...don't be stupid here. Please make our team better with some younger guys!

    He will either be traded or signed. Expect a trade soon. They won't mess it up because they've been in this situation before, but because Dickey deserves it.

    Seven years from now, if he's still on top of his game and the prospects we received for him all failed to pan out, will you concede you were wrong?

    Seven years from now, when Dickey is retired and the Mets are still signing "affordable placeholders" with no young players becoming the core of the team, will you think resigning Dickey was still the right idea?

    It could go both ways.

    If he is going 7 years from now and wins another CY award, I will concede

    The two aren't mutually exclusive. Everyone seems to have bought into the concept that keeping Dickey will prohibit them from getting other players.

    It shouldn't.

    If they can get an everyday impact player or two in exchange for Dickey I'm all for it. I just see them getting a handful of mediocres who will serve no purpose other than to keep us from paying a high salaried player, e.g. RA Dickey.

    Interesting, I heard Sandy on the phone today talking about how 2 of the players they were considering when they signed Hairston a year ago are still on the market.

    But Hairston himself is no longer being considered because he has played himself into a higher market.

    What Sandy is saying is that they are no longer interested in signing players who can help win baseball games. Just players who are affordable.

    See, Hairston is still a 4th outfielder. The problem is that he's now a GOOD 43th outfielder and if he's good, well, we don't have room for him on our team.

    Should be a fun season at the Five and Dime otherwise known as Cit Field.

    Ok.

    And three years from now?

    Will a deal happen tomorrow during the last day of the winter meetings or will it be later?

    Next season is not as meaningless as people think. Even if we have money to spend next year you have to have an attractive destination to bring in talent and be able to lock up the players you do have. If we just give up on next season we won't be able to bring in anyone in 2014.

    So If we can't find a trade that makes sense you resign him and win as many games as you can next season. We do have holes to fill but Id rather make other trades. Like I think we could get a solid outfielder for Gee, and a catcher for Murphy if we can't land a top prospect in either for Dickey.

    The Mets have three known commodities in Dickey, Niese and Harvey and one unkown in Wheeler. I don't see them trading three who haven't even come close to their primes. Dickey could pitch even better in 2013 than he did in 2012 but with the way this team is constructed right now it would be a waste of Dickey's efforts to do it for a fourth place team again. Sell and build for the future while you have Dickey's stock high.

    It's not that simple.

    It has to be the right prospect/set of prospects otherwise bringing Dickey back makes the most sense.

    If they are looking to compete in 2014 and add considerable payroll, Dickey can still be a very useful asset.

    I'll be very happy if we re-sign him to 3 years. Very happy. If there's no elite prospects on the table (like Olt or Myers), we should re-sign him. Period. Trading him for a B-prospect and fringe Top 100 guys would be completely stupid.
