(mdthomp from ILSTU)
Dickson is a nice story, but I wouldn’t be too excited about him; he gets groundballs and avoids walks, but his profile doesn’t sound like much more than a back-end starter at best.

Kelly has the better stuff and the brighter future. The problem with him is that he might wind up in the bullpen. (R.J. Anderson)
