Bartolo Colon won a CY too. Dickey no longer is pitching in Citi Field. He no longer faces pitchers, or Marlins/Phillies. He now pitches in a HR dome, facing NY, Boston, Baltimore. Maybe he does ok, but i see some risk there.
If you or he must keep Dickey, drop Latos. Rizzo is a 25 90 guy at worst, and likely is a regular 30/100 guy not yet in his prime.
I guess we will have to see what happens.
I can find Latos type SP year to year. Young 30hr guys are much rarer.
I had a long winded response typed out, but screw it. Drop the Cy Young award winner for a guy that hasn't hit more than 15HR's in the majors. I'd do that. He might hit more than 15 in the future.
If you're allowed to do trades, I'd probably try and move Dickey instead of dropping him. Dickey and Rizzo even. That'd fetch ya something amazing.
