According to Morosi, he says the deal is R.A. Dickey to Toronto for Gose AND Arencibia OR D'Arnaud. Let's hope it's D'Arnaud

Well jeez, that's kind of a major "OR".

Yeah, they just did it on the MLB channel too. The "OR" was like a giant record scratch.

I know right lol. It's either a fantastic trade or a regrettable one. Such a huge swing. We just have to have faith that Sandy will not accept a guy with a sub .300 OBP.

thats a huge OR which really questions how close the deal is

JPA is a decent player with decent power put he is what he is "decent"

Gose is a good young piece but in a deal for RA is what I would call the secondary piece.

So that leaves travis d'arnaud he is the trade breaker

so its not like 2 players with equal value there is a huge gap of talent between the 2 catchers/

Right I'm going to go home tonight with Jessica Alba or the over weight 50 year old divorcee at the end of the bar. I'm going to eat lobster and steak tonight or a hungry man dinner. I'm going to drink champagne or Genny Lite...you get the point

I would say it has to be the second, since the first has been rumored since the meetings and the Mets turned it down.
Why would they accept it today unless something changed?
I am hoping the thing that changed was better player added, not that the Wilpons want Dickey gone because of the Xmas party.

Ugh. I'm hearing Gose and Arencibia.

That's a terrible deal... I really hope that's not true.

I went into this with confidence that Sandy would understand the magnitude of trading Dickey and get an appropriate return. The constant mentions of Arencibia, though, do concern me.

Apparently Dickey won't even discuss an extension, which severely limits his trade value.
