Baltimore being serious players for Dickey

Why would someone trade a top bat for Dickey, but not for what we are going to give for Dickey?

Different teams have different needs. The Mets may value a couple of young pitchers with good upside like Britton and Arrieta, but another team may prefer an established veteran.

Briiton or Arietta and i'm good with a trade. Rspecially if we could get him without giving up Schoop.

It may just be me, but I don't want to give up Britton. Guy looks brilliant at times and had 4 awesome starts in August/September and is 24 years old. Call me crazy, but I'd almost rather have Britton than Dickey for a year. Dude has all the potential in the world.

I can't figure why everyone is in love with an old pitcher who likely pitched a fluke season

People keep saying this, but look at his last three years. Last year was not a complete aberration.

Exactly. Peoples acts like Britton is bust.

If we can get him for Schoop, Britton/Arrieta, and one or two more decent prospects, I would be thrilled. We'd have to sign him to an extension though to make it worth it, IMO.

Schoop would be a terrible deal. One year of a guy who had a career year at 38 for a guy that should give us at least 12 WAR at a very reduced price.

I wouldn't say his success is flukey, but the strikeout rate spiked dramatically enough where I would call into question whether or not he will repeat it. If he doesn't repeat that he's still a pretty good pitcher, but maybe not an Ace worth giving up a lot for in a trade when Dickey's only under contract for one year and we have a number of bodies already competing for spots.
