|R.A. Dickey had a disastrous 2013, rewarding owners who had faith in his 2010-2012 seasons (2.95 ERA and 1.15 WHIP over 616 2/3 innings) with a 4.21 ERA and 1.24 WHIP. His K/9 dipped to 7.1 and he gave up a career-high 207 hits. Dickey did have some neck and shoulder issues earlier in the season, which he didn't mention later, but could have contributed to his down season -- the Blue Jays staff once again was rocked with injury, and Dickey, even a little hurt, could have pitched through the pain with his knuckler. This leaves us at a crossroads for 2014. One camp of Fantasy owners will say Dickey returned to the AL and hit the beginning of his decline (he's 39 years old). Another camp will presume Dickey pitched hurt all season long (his fastball and "power knuckler" velocity both dropped), pointing out a still-decent WHIP, and view him as having great value with bounceback potential. Consider us in the latter. Dickey is worth the risk -- he's a mid-round starter who is a lock for 200 innings and should end up posting numbers closer to his 2010-2012 run than 2013.
