I think it's probable he will be traded. Ken Davidoff's column this morning takes a couple back-handed shots at Dickey, to wit.
"But Dickey, like his old Rangers teammate Alex Rodriguez, is drawn to the spotlight like a moth to a flame, and he came to the right place."
"Only with a resolution will we stop discussing Dickey. He might not necessarily like that. But he and the Mets would get peace of mind in return."
A few whispers about R.A. being an attention seeker to get the ball rolling.
"If we could get Andrus or Profar we could flip either one to Arizona for Upton. The D-Backs asked the Rangers for one of them, but the Rangers turned them down,"
If we get a Profar or Myers for example, the first "flip" I would try to make is for Stanton. Profar/Myers +Familia+Flores+lower level prospect would get the Marlins thinking IMO. If we flipped Profar in a package for Upton, I'd add Familia and a small piece or 2.
"If we flipped Profar in a package for Upton, I'd add Familia and a small piece or 2."
Now you're making some sense.
