<<"I mean sure if someone came and blew them away with a trade where saying no would be irresponsible"
Someone did. D'Arnaud and Snydergaard is being blown away.
<<"He knew RA isn't the type to say "Not now this is about the kids" or anything like that."
I think the decision to trade Dickey was made long before the party. In any case, I have no idea why Dickey didn't say no comment.
While i do find Kevin Burkhardt extremely annoying I do think thats a bit of a stretch. He prob shouldnt have asked contract stuff at a holiday party but im pretty sure Alderson knew what he wanted to do with Dickey all along. Dickey was not asking alot of money here so i really think the mets just wanted to trad ehim while his value was high and get the rebuilding going no matter what.
Does anyone find Kevin as annoying as me tho? I think he talks waaaaay to much, asks such detailed and emotional type questions that are way too much for a baseball game. I also cant stand how sny has to do his little segments like 3 times a game. I wanna just watch somebody at bat or somebody pitch and i always have to see him babbling in the seats somehwere interviewing some guy who went to pre sechool school with bobby parnell or some ridiculous thing like that
Just because someone asks you a question, it doesn't mean you have to give them an honest answer. Dickey was under no pressure to talk about his contract situation--he chose to answer.
Good or bad, every action has a reaction, especially for those in the limelight.
Just my opinion.
