"...And while Arencibia has averaged 21.5 homers the past two seasons, his career on-base percentage, in nearly 900 plate appearances, is .275.
Come to think of it, the Mets almost certainly would want more than such a player for a Cy Young winner, which brings us back to something resembling the Arencibia-Gose package."
Wow, isn't Rosenthal the biggest sh*t-flinging beat writer of them all. He can't even formulate his own thoughts to write his reports. He flip flops right there on the page. Oh, do I hate him so.
But anyways, if it were Arencibia for Dickey straight up, we'd decline and extend him. Next.
Too bad you couldn't finish reading the article.

Haha okay. Arrencibia is pretty terrible, and he will be even worse in Citi.
Take your sub-.300 OBP garbage elsewhere.
Another lifetime time , 221 catcher. Dont we have enough of them?
We dont need another Thole.
Firstly I was merely providing a link for context. Secondly Arencibia isn't garbage, he's fine. Thirdly the Mets appear to love fielding trash lineups anyways.
Thole is garbage. The Mets BP and outfield are garbage.
"Thole is garbage. The Mets BP and outfield are garbage."
Do you disagree? I wasn't trashing anyone, just being honest.
