5 million is not that expensive in the realm of MLB.

And the reality is that the Mets would still be a 4th place team with or without Dickey.

And I hope they don't waste their money giving multi-year contracts to players on the wrong side of 30.

This team still needs to build from within. And get 1-2 quality ball player, preferably an outfielder, via FA or a trade on the right side of 30.
