As much as I dislike Justin Upton, I think you have to keep him here. Last spot I think is between Wainwright and Dickey. It is hard to not pick Dickey at this point, but since knuckleballers are traditionally unpredictable year to year, it is not a safe pick. Still, Wainwright has been erratic enough that I would probably go with Dickey and hope for the best.

I really don't like keeping 3 SP but it is your best option. I would try to trade a combination of Dickey, Wainright, Motte, and/or Montero for a big bat.

For the most part I agree with everyone else. I would really look to move Dickey though. I have no faith that Dickey keeps this up. If you can deal him to someone who does think he can, then do it. And really I like Wainwright as a better keeper than Dickey but I realize that Dickey has had a pretty amazing year so it is hard to keep Wainwright over him.

Agreed. I do like Wainwright a lot for next season. I'd take my chances on re-drafting though rather than looking at him as a keeper. As the roster stands though ... gotta be Dickey.

Yep, pretty much confirmed my predicament here - obvious 5 and I can't seriously throw Dickey back, even if he is 100. I pushed hard to land a better 1B keeper during the season but no one bit unfortunately because everyone had a solid 1-2 sp combo that also had a 1B I could trade for.

Tough call between Waino and Dickey, Dickey just has more risk than Waino, as Waino is very likely to improve, while Dickey is probable to regress somewhat.

Got to agree with you. Dickey is a perfect trade high guy. In the long run you'll be better off with Wainwright.
