I would love to see Dickey hurting the Yankees on a regular basis... lol
And yeah, these look like two very good prospects. I guess Bradley might be a year away though. Not sure about Bofaerts. But then if we get Bofaerts, we could move Ruben back to 2nd, and deal Murphy.
"Too bad the Red Sox wont do it."
"You never know,we heard the same thing about the Giant and Wheeler.
I would have a modicum of faith in this franchise again if this goes down.
In my fantasy world, the Mets get either D'Arnaud or Myers. It's very pleasant there.
>>>" Too bad the Red Sox wont do it."<<<
I don't know if they would or not. Plus we don't know if there could be other factor to this rumors... additional pieces moving that make it a bigger deal.
That would be... Amazing.
By the way, nothing on Lavarnaway? If the Mets could get Bogaerts and a catcher that would be golden.
if Sandy can complete this deal it would be a very solid move,IMO...absolutely would be in favor of a deal like that
our starting rotation would become immediately weaker obviously but finding more pitching down the line would be our next priority

I think our staff will still be good even without Dickey, and it opens up a chance for Mejia to show what he can do - before Wheeler comes up that is ...lol.
If we can get a similar 1st half out of Johan as this year, and equal-to-better seasons out of Neise and Harvey, plus a "solid" year out of Gee, then we will be more than fine. We can let Wheeler and Mejia nurse slowly in the mix.
Santana and Gee are question marks although i hold out hope that Johan will surprise us two years removed from his surgery.....that leaves us with Niese and Harvey who we also have to remember will be a rookie and then we have to wait (not too long i hope) for Wheeler
i think Niese,Wheeler,and Harvey could be very solid but we're pretty thin after that
having said that i'm all in favor of trading a 38 year old pitcher for hopefully our starting CFer and SS of the future
to me it's a no-brainer of a move if Sandy can swing it
