On this pace he could win 20 games, What a pick up he has been.

I would move him to the bullpen. He could fix the situation all by himself, and be responsible for two-three wins per cycle rather than just one.

that notion is so insane that it actually might make sense once young comes back

I wonder how a knockball would do in multible games a week, If he can handle pitching an inning or so on back to tback days it might not be a bad idea.

The mid-60's, that's in the modern era, you know.

Closer, eighth inn specialist, 5 man rotation, and other changes make the 60s a much different era than today. I think that is what was meant.

Well, Wilhelm was a knuckleball throwing relief pitcher who went out frequently for multiple innings, and pulled off sub-2 ERA's for a series of years in his mid-40's. That's how I suggest Dickey could best help the team.

I was just reading about this today. The Mets average over 5 runs per game when Dickey's on the mound (factoring in those 2 games where they scored 9 runs), and they've scored no less than 3 runs in any game he's started. It's strange how some guys get run support and others never seem to. Consider this:

Santana: 1-2, 2.89ERA, 1.17WHIP
Dickey: 5-1, 3.75ERA, 1.24WHIP

Mets are averaging 3 runs per game in Santana's starts, but more often than not winning he's left the game. He has 5 no decisions, with 3 of those 5 resulting in a win.

If Santana got any run support, and bullpen help, he'd by 5-1 too.

Exactly. For as long as Santana's been a Met, he's never gotten run support.

Frank Viola was the last Met to achieve 20 wins back in 1990. We're due I think.

few things we could thank omar for,

johan, dickey, neise, neiwenheiss, murphy, all our young prospect pitchers except wheeler...2006.

omar wasn't that terrible. we were close but it always seemed the wilpons gave him $ but never that extra few bucks to put us over the top. it was always deals like bay over holliday, ollie over lowe, castillo over anybody else...lol. that and the team chokin and bad managers did him in.
