    All of it is speculation---why was this not folded into the existing thread?

    This would really piss me off. I'm hoping that in the end, Dickey realizes he has to sign the extension because of his age he'd really be risking a lot of money that he may never get a chance for again if he ends up having a down yr.
    I would pay to go to Citi Field just to boo him if he denies the extension.

    I figured they would want Thole because he is Dickey's catcher. Not many can catch a knuckleballer.

    Well at least the Mets got the Blue Jays top prospect for Dickey. I wished they would have thrown in Raji Davis to help us in the outfield for at least the next couple of seasons.

    I can see the signs in the crowd now, "Thanks for being a Dick Dickey!"

    Jeff Passan ‏@JeffPassan Disclaimer: He's far, far away. But because of size, upside and organization he's in, a scout threw Carpenter/Halladay comps on Syndergaard.

    So, we have Halladay in Syndergaard and right-handed Kershaw in Wheeler. lol

    OK man this is great and all but let's not get ahead of ourselves like we did on Valdespin, huh?

    Valdespin? What does he have to do with anything? He wasn't even highly touted. This is what scouts have said.

    Is Corey Hart a free agent now? I've always really liked him

    Next year. It should be the year we sign a lot of free agents imo.

    Can you just imagine if they pitched anything close to either of those guys? Wow!

    He was blown up on this forum. He's average at best.

    Really want Dickey to sign this extension before it approaches the deadline.
