May 7, 2001 This kid is tough and has pretty good stuff. But he needs to learn how to put batters away. Way too many 1-2 counts became 3-2 very quickly.

May 12, 2001 Dicky has his moments, but he isn't good enough to be starting in the majors at this time. I have to cut the kid slack because of the situation he was put in. It's hard being a rookie starter let alone take the place of Al Leiter. Valentine doesn't seem to be giving up on the kid which is a good thing. He just like I are hoping he can improve quickly so we can get TRASHsel out of the rotation.

April 7, 2002 He had a gutsy performance for a rookie in 2001. He was the opening day starter for Norfolk Tides in 2002, struck out the first four batters to face him and seven over five innings, giving up two runs and was traded to the Expos the next day. I hope he makes it in the bigs!
