i agree with you,i think other teams are missing the boat as far as Dickey is concerned...
Dickey is IMO the perfect pitcher for a current contender....i honestly think he's got at least 3 years left in him and even just meeting his contract "demands" at an extra 2 years for 26 million you're getting a Cy Young award winner coming off 3 excellent seasons for 3 years/31 million,VERY inexpensive considering the way the market has evolved
don't know if this is old news or not
They can have him he stinks.
it seems teams look at it differently.
wakefield made the AS team at age 42, even though he was mostly mediocre after age 39.
