Re: RA Dickey
The Mets picked up Dickey's option. So he is signed for one year.
He would be a dynamite pickup for one year. He was tremendous this year, he misses bats, he would be a terrific change of pace from the hard throwers.
He would allow the Reds to trade off Leake and keep Chapman at closer.
The obvious problem is that Dickey will want a major extension. The Mets will want a big return. If the Reds only can keep him one season, they will not want to provide that return. So this won't happen.
