    Eh idk, even if we do get some prospects this team is going nowhere for the foreseeable future.

    Might as well have an ace to root for.

    Congrats Dickster.

    Good for him. Seems like a humble, stand-up guy. Congratulations.

    How bout those Mets? A perfect game and a Cy Young award in the same year.

    A no-hitter, not a perfect game.

    Oh right, my bad. Nevertheless, the irony is the same.

    Met him a few years ago when he was a mere possible blip on the Mets pitching rotation. Couldnt have been nicer.

    My sopne has his autograph on an old crappy ball...and that makes it all the more cooler.

    Congrats Dickster.
    That's exactly the reason why you should deal him. His stock can't be higher, he's not a young man, and I may be wrong, but I don't think you can rely on him being an ace moving forward. I think the Mets would be wasting an opportunity if they didn't get themselves some blue chip prospects out of this.

    Maybe, but he has been lights out for 2+ years...doesnt seem to be slowing down.

    An argument can be made either way I suppose... but with a team with so little to root for, losing him would be a big blow.

    Knuckleballers have a longer shelf life than traditional pitchers.

    i think the Mets need to sit down and ask themselves 3 question...

    how long does he have left in the tank

    how long before the mets can compete

    what can they get for him in a trade

    the combination of those 3, should give them the answer they are look for.

    personally, i would trade him for the right prospects. the guy is 38 and has 2 good years left MAYBE...the mets are not winning significant amounts of games in the next 2 years.
