I guess other teams must be wondering why any team would trade a reigning Cy Young Award winner, God knows I frequently ask myself that question. But here is what the the Dallas Morning News believes is the reason: In trying to find starting pitchers to plug into their rotation, the Rangers have been connected to reigning NL Cy Young winner (and former Ranger) R.A. Dickey in the last week. Dickey, who’s entering the final year of his deal with the Mets, could be traded despite having just been named the NL’s top pitcher in 2012. The Mets don’t seem to be ready to compete just yet, and Dickey, at 38, may not play long enough to see the team make it back to relevancy. Wow, they don’t think we’d be relevant even by 2015… Is that what other teams are thinking? Yesterday, ESPN’s Keith Law said the Phillies deal for Ben Revere made no sense for the Phillies because “they robbed Peter to pay Paul”, Law wrote. “Now instead of a vacancy in the outfield they have a vacancy in the rotation.”
