yeah.....it has nothing to do w/ money
and the fact that you called TDA an "unknown" means that you really don't know much about anything related to prospects
i guess the rays traded shields for an unknown too?
were mike trout and bryce harper unknowns before last year?
the mets have a good rotation even w/o dickey...but they have one of the worst lineups in baseball
its funny bc you say w/ a couple of decent ofs and an upgrade at catcher....what the f*ck do you think they are trading dickey for?
i swear, i read posts like yours and i wonder if you're ignorant or f*cking re*tarded
yeah, we are trying to trade for the best catching prospect that has come along in years and we are going to start mike nickeas...how the f*ck do you think you get the players to make the lineup better? free-agency? because that worked out for us so well in the past
Here read my last post rather than typing it all out again.
<<"It's sad that a big market team has to trade a player of Dickeys caliber due to money but thats the reality we have to live with. I mean christ RA was basically giving us a discount and we were still haggling with him"
I don't really see it that way. Dickey was going to cost 5 mil in 2013 and if they exetended him for 2 yrs at 12 mil per, it only adds 7 mil to the 2014 and 2015 payrolls. With Santana and most of the Bay money off the books, Dickey was easily affordable.
IMO, both Wright and Dickey should have traded for the long-term health of the team. I understand why Wright stayed, which meant that if the Mets were going to look to the future, Dickey had to go.
