You are right, they would be a great help to the Jays. But the Jays will never trade you those guys.
You might get Gose, but I will be positively shocked if they trade any of their prospects. I know most Met fans don't want JPA, and that is fine. But Synergaard is one of two top pitching prospects in the system. The mets won't get him for a 38 year old pitcher, who is under control for one year, CY or not.
Seems to be that what Dickey is asking for is reasonable, compared to what the market is like this year. Why haven't the Mets extended him?
I think it's more about the money, sadly. The owners must get creative and find a way. It makes no sense to trade away an ace for prospects, flat out. That's usually for unloading a large contract, sometimes mid season to obtain something rather than allow your pitcher to walk as a FA.
Anyway, it's unthinkable that the Mets would consider trading Dickey, as we can extend his contract under very reasonable terms.
I would have to say Synergaard especially is untouchable, and D'Arnaud, pretty close.
The Jays have already taken a hit on their farm with their trade with the Marlins, and I really doubt they will give up anything other than JPA and maybe Gose. I may be wrong, and I am not saying it is a fair trade for Dickey. Just that if the Jays were willing to give up D'Arnaud I think the deal would already be done.
Well either way, he is signed for next year. If they give him an extension of two years, it seems to me that it is to their advantage. Now they are offering a player that is signed for three years, at a reasonable rate. If they don't want him at the end of next year, they can still trade him.
"d arnaud, syndergaad and/or gose for dickey and?--------"
If we have to trade Dickey, How about something along the lines of d arnaud, Bonifacio, Janssens, syndergaad and gose for dickey, Flores, A minor League Outfielder and Danny Muno?
