No offense, but pretty ridiculous argument. They let that "franchise player" go after a career year, and he proceeded to not live up to the hefty contract, and is now on a third team in three years.
Their real franchise player they just resigned, and they've made it clear to teams that if they're blown away by offers for Dickey or Niese for MLB ready young stud prospects that improve the offense in the OF or C, they'll deal, otherwise they'll try to resign/retain them. I like Dickey, as a pitcher and a human being, but with Harvey and Wheeler in the wings, and a replacement level outfield at best, deal from strength.
Freddy's an ass, but lets be fair, this early in FA, you cant call them sellers yet.
