i don't like the trade.
I have trouble trusting Dickey. He is 38 years old. And yes, knuckleballers can pitch into their 40's.....but they have also been known to suddenly just lose their stuff as they get older. Dickey should be successful this year, but I don't trust him going forward. So I consider those next two years on the contract as almost meaningless.
In general, I like Harper a little more than Posey. Considering the pounding catchers take, i fully expect Posey to regress a bit from last years numbers (I think he will put up 3rd or 4th round numbers.....not 2nd round numbers). And when you consider that you would have Harper for next year, too......while you would lose Posey at the end of this season.....I like Harper a lot more than Posey for the sake of this trade.
Harper is the best and safest player in the trade. It looks to me like the other guy is trying to trade away 2 guys that scare him a little bit and is trying to get a sure thing in return.
Personally, I would keep Harper.
