I know some are upset that dickey is (probably) being traded but look at the haul we get back.D'arnaud- potentially the next buster posey. syngaard- their third ranked prospect to go along with harvey,wheeler and niese in the future rotation of the ny mets.im a little wary of the generation k effect but im willing to roll the dice. john buck-honestly id rather have apa than buck but buck would be a suitable back up.i remember i was just a few years ago he actually did show some power and ability.i dont hate his being included aslong as the jays are taking on some of his money. another prospect,who? maybe another catcher? hopefully a outfielder thats not really elite but decent.
and we are giving up.Dickey-yes it hurts but i have to be honest.i havent really been happy with some of his tactics this year,and maybe that makes me miss him less.but it does stink,and i wish him well.and thole- who cares? non elite prospect, whoever it is i doudt he'll be missed.i heard that three catchers were involved,so aslong as it isnt plawecki im good.
great pull for us.but does nothing for our outfield situation. im sorry,but i still think micheal bourne is worth talking about.i dont think we should sign both ross and bourne because theres some pretty good outfielders available next year that i like more than i like ross.but bourne is 29,has no injury history,and is the best lead off hitter that is available in the next 2-3 years.we have ellsbury next yr but the dude gets hurt ALOT. with this trade we just unloaded 5 million more off the books plus whatever thole was making...so...
bourne 5 yearsyear 1-11 million year 2-15year 3-15year4-13year5-11
thats a good contract in my opinion for a guy that always steals 40 plus bags a year.theres no reason we cant afford this.if he doesnt accept it.ok.move on.i wouldnt go higher than that.but atleast try.
i get it,i do.but we have to mix provens in here aswell as youth. hes 29 with no injury history. if we are relying on our own system and ONLY our own system,then honestly i wish the mets had just did david a favor and traded him.because its gonna take a LONG TIME to find the right mix to win.
you cannot have JUST youthful prospects.
