Trading Dickey, in my estimation, would be a catastrophic mistake.

I think if the Mets went after a catcher they would want one who could play now, not 3-4 years from now.

I like Brinson.. But Brinson can not be traded yet. Well he can but he can only be traded as a player to be named.. in which he would stay with the Rangers organization and then moved after the date that he signed his rookie contract..

If the Mets trade Murphy who would they play at 2B? Furthermore what use does Texas have for Murphy? They have AS's across 3B, SS, 2B and Murphy doesn't hit enough to play 1B.

I agree but what other option would be out there with other clubs? I was just going off of the rangers who seem to be the most interested, going off the reports

Harvey and Wheeler will be solid pitchers by 2015.

Niese will hopefully be pitching as good as he did in 2012.

Dickey has mastered the Knuckleball, and should pitch at least as good as he did in 2011.

Thats 4 Very Good Starters, with the potential of Amazing starters.

You add a couple hitters the next couple offseasons, the Mets could be Very Good in 2015.

your comfortable with 13 mil per year to a 39, 40 yr old pitcher? rather than get good prospects in thier 20's and spend that money elsewhere? I disagree IMO

I would take Dickey for Olt and Leonys Martin if we could get it. Then all of the sudden instead of having 15-20M to spend on 2 outfielders and a catcher, you have 20-25M to spend on just one catcher and maybe a cheap starter like Lannan. So I then would sign Priezynski. And maybe even Hairston if their is still money left and he is reasonable.

Vs Lefties

L Martin
R Tejada
R Wright
L Ike
R Hairston
L Priezynski
R Olt
L Murphy
Pitcher

Vs Righties

L Martin
R Tejada
R Wright
L Ike
L Duda
L Priezynski
R Olt
L Murphy
Pitcher

Mets drafted Plawecki 35th overall last year, I am hoping he will develop and be ready in 2 years.

He was far from terrible, 7 HRs in 216 Abs avg a little low at .250 but had a .345 OBP.

I'd personally try and get a package around Mesoraco from Cincinatti.
