Every team can use another TOR starter, but I am not sure if we need to make a Dickey-like trade to get another. A ballclub definitely needs to trade a lot to get a TOR arm and I don't see the need to acquire another one right now...
Losing 3 in a row in the playoffs says the Reds need another TOR starter who can get it done. I always thought I would want Chapman as a starter, but he's magic at the end. I would probably keep him there. I hope I'm wrong, but I'm not sure he has the makeup to be that #1 guy.
RA Dickey isn't the type of guy that I would go after.

I have a platform and a message, and now I go to bed at night, sober and happy, praying I can be a good messenger." -Josh Hamilton
