I'm still saying no. I don't see that your pitching needs bolstered. I think Beltran will be more valuable to your team.
see mine? viewtopic.php?f=26&t=451532
I just don't understand this though. What value with Beltran bring sitting on the bench everyday once Bats is back?? AND Big Papi??? The answer is none. Bench players add no value, obviously, and an extra ace pitcher on your staff adds tremendous value.
Dickey, however, we know what he's going to do the rest of the season. To add onto reasons for which you should make this deal, Terry Collins is in serious talks about having Dickey start on short rest starting very soon, which is HUGE. Imagine having a start from Dickey almost twice a week every week for the rest of the year. That's how you win a championship.
I can't stress that this deal makes the most sense for you enough. It's an absolute no brainer.
EDIT: Holy S*** I didn't even realize that complete games are a category in your league. A guy like Dickey, who doesn't throw a pitch higher than 85 MPH, eats complete games for breakfast.
