It is not that they can't trade him they just want to get the best that they can in a trade. The other teams don't want to offer the best deal yet because the process is still young. After the couple of pitchers available on the FA market get settled the many teams that will still need starting pitchers will be more ready to deal fairly for R.A.

How many in that small group of teams are going to get Shields? ONE. Given another team gets Zack G. That will still leave teams needing a starting pitcher who will be a little bit more desperate.

He's had one great season and he's 38. Not all CY Young are the same. If the Dodgers wanted to move Kershaw, he'd have more value than Dickey.

For 2 years, he was a solid #2, last year, he was obviously a #1. His 2013 contract is for 5 Mil and I think many teams are hesitant about giving up prime prospects and then have to pay Dickey 13-15 mil per yr, beyond 2013 (if the Mets won't, what makes other teams more deperate).

IMO, Dickey will have equal or more interest at the deadline where even some surprise small market teams (Pitts, etc) will be able to afford him for the remainder of the year and be willing to give a good player or two.

If Dickey were a Yankee or Brave teams would be falling over themselves trying to make a deal with them.

Why are you forgetting to adjust for certain other variables, like his age, repertoire, the market, year(s) left under control, etc.?

Unless Thole is going with Dickey at the deadline you'll be hard pressed to move him. It would be tough for a team in contention to expect their catchers to learn Dickeys knuckleball in the middle of the season.
