He doesn't know how to pitch yet. He certainly can learn though. If you get him, take your time with him.

Look. If I was you guys and, and saw that you got both d'Arnaud and Syndergaard.....I would be one VERY happy Mets fan. I already hate this deal as a Jays fan.

One year though. If Dickey does sign that rumored extension my spirits will change. If not, I can't sacrifice this much future for one great year. It's not how I would operate.

Who is Synde...and why does he need to be Gaarded?

He's just another guy who throws hard and has no command of his pitches. The minors are full of them. They're a dime a dozen. We have pleanty of our own already. Two of them pitched for us last year. Mejia and Familia. Both Stink. So does this guy.

"While losing a pitching prospect is always a bummer, this is how teams operate that are contending for October baseball. You should be thankful the Jays are in such a position."

I'm not arguing that Dickey isn't a brilliant pitcher. He's amazing. It's our two best prospects though who have 12 years of service time at a team-friendly salary.

That's about 8 cheap years (arbitration) vs 1 cheap and 2 moderately expensive ones.

Well im guessing Dickey would be amenable to signing an extension. Its been said that he is interested in doing so. He knows that there is a risk going into the season unsigned beyond this year. At 38 years old he wants the security.

You forgot to add "for a proven ML quality pitcher" With a strong lineup behind him Dickey is liable to win more than 20 games in the ALEast.

"But he knows how to pitch, has done it almost all his life and has command."

When did he start throwing 100 mph with pinpoint accuracy? 3 yrs old? Almost all his life=HAHAHA. He is in A ball and has a long way to go. Another thread suggested that he's dropping his curveball and trying to incorporate a slider. He's yrs away from the Majors. As much talent and potential as he may have, let's not over-hype him. I don't see him as an impact player for the next 3-4 yrs.

Very true, in fact he can say the 2/26 was a home town discount and ask for a little more. Personally I hope he gets it and I will be watching every time he pitches against the yanks. Well maybe not live, I like to DVR their games and only watch if they lose. Much less angst that way.
