FLASH - Dickey, Thole for: Travis d'Arnaud, John Buck, Noah Syndergaard

9 comments

Joel Sherman of the New York Post confirms that the Mets and Blue Jays are nearing the completion of a seven-player trade involving knuckleballer R.A. Dickey.

As currently constructed, the trade would send Dickey, Josh Thole and an unnamed (non-elite) prospect to the Blue Jays in exchange for Travis d'Arnaud, John Buck, Noah Syndergaard and an unnamed (non-elite) prospect. Nothing is expected to be finalized until Sunday, so the parameters of the swap could certainly change before then.

And while the singularly focused Sandy Alderson who was unable to do anything else during the peer pressure negotiations to overpay David Wright now turns his 100% attention to the R.A. Dickey transaction, the Phillies sign John Lannan for just $2.5 million. Hmmm, now what team about to lose a starter and whose rotation included two other starters recovering from injuries could have used a bargain like that???

Woahhh....Reese....if the Mets have one thing its a surplus of pitching. And wright def did not get overpaid.

Plus lannan is a #5 at this point in his career. Id rather have Gee, Mejia, or McHugh at league minimum.

You also forget to mention that he has an additional $2.5MM IN easily attainable incentives. $5mm for john lannan....no thank you.

Damn right Soto. I'd much rather try for Pelfrey on a two year deal with incentives, only after they get an outfielder.

You'd think, after saving 8 mill on Wrights contract this yr and 5 from Dickey, they'd have a minimum of 15 mill to spend this season after Bays buyout gets added in. You'd presume they had another 5 mill flexibility before those moves so now you'd think 20 mill.

Why not get a couple guys for one year and overpay just to be able to cut them loose next yr when there's much more room to acquire players.

After this deal anythings possible. I'm shocked its taken this long.
