R.A. Dickey might well win the National League Cy Young Award. if you're a New York Mets fan you probably think that is great, and it is. You are probably more interested, however, in whether or not the veteran knuckleballer will be with the Mets next season.

There have been varying reports about whether the Mets will be able to come to a deal with Dickey, or if they will end up being forced to trade him. General manager Sandy Alderson has reportedly said 'we're trying to" keep Dickey. Alderson, though, did not guarantee it would happen.

"It would be a little unusual to trade a Cy Young winner," Alderson said, "but I can remember a time (as GM of the Oakland A's in 1990) when we traded for the leading hitter in the National League at the time, so it happens."

How would you feel, Mets' fans, if Dickey ended up elsewhere next season?
