Re: Dickey to Jays almost done
The last 3 years Dickey has been one of the best pitchers in the game. He deserves his 15 or 16 mil a year. Knuckleballers seem to get better with time. I say pay the man. Im really not a big fan of teams going into the offseason and spending hundreds of millions of dollars. It didnt work for the Marlins or Angles last year. Seems like it didnt help the Dodgers in the 2nd half of last year. My guess is the Jays, Dodgers, and Angles will probably all struggle a little bit in 2013. The way to build a team is how the Indians of the 90's did it and how the Reds are doing it now. Im a big believer in team chemistry and it starts in the minor leagues with your young nucleus. Spending all that money may be good for the fan base to talk about but it seems like it rarely works how its supposed too.
