Re: MLB Offseason 2012

Dickey starts were the only reason to watch the team after the all star break, and I hate to see him go from a sentimental standpoint. But, he's 38, knucklers are notoriously inconsistent, and the Mets aren't built to win in the next year or two. I'll take a top flight catching prospect.

I think Alderson is doing a good job of purging the team from the previous regime on a limited budget. For the first time last season in years, I felt some hope about watching them. I can deal with youth and rebuilding, but not incompetence and dead weight.

Edit: Ooh, they get a highly rated pitching prospect too.
