Ender, did you make your comments before or after you read today's article about Dickey on Fangraphs?!

http://www.fangraphs.com/blogs/index.ph ... -velocity/


I think everyone has noticed the velocity is what makes him special. If we are keeping track, I mentioned it on the first page, 6/18 at 8:03 PM. :-b

Nice to see that article confirming what we are all seeing.



I'm not quite sure that everyone is seeing this. He does play for the mets,they don't get a lot of national tv exposure.

Unless you live in new York or have the MLB package, you're prolly not seeing this.

How should we value Dickey for the ROS?

His last 4 starts have been pretty mediocre.

For ROS...maybe K/9 around 8 and ratios close to what he had last year.

Yeah, I think the luster is gone with this guy. No doubt he can bring it, but as others have stated, I think the Dickey we saw in '11 is closer to what we're going to see from this dude going forward. His July has been atrocious. I do expect his K/9 will continue to exceed his K/9 from '11, but his rate stats are not going to remain elite. He'll still be useful, but not the top fantasy pitcher he was for the first half of the season. More like a mid 20's option going forward, and I think that may be a bit optimistic. Low 30's might be more realistic. Sure, it's possible he rekindles the magic of that nasty knuckler we all loved prior to July, but I wouldn't bet on it. I think his lines forward will be somewhere in the ballpark of 6 IP, 5 H's, 3 R's, 3 BB's, 6 K's. Reminds me of Ubaldo circa 2010.
