Both sides (Dickey and the Mets) got what they.
I have no hard feeling toward either. It's business and hopefully it works out for Dickey there, and work out with our prospects here.

Congratulations all around.

Now, I hope RA gets a championship ring to go with his Cy Young award. No one in baseball is more deserving. IMO

"wilpon should die in a fire for being this cheap"

we got two top players that we can add too (bourne,THIS YEAR) and finally have a young nucleus to build around. wright and ike,niese with d'arnaud,wheeler,harvey .we can start adding players to this mix and maybe start contending by 2014.

theres just asmuch as a chance that d'arnaud/syndgaard amount to nothing as there is dickey flaters and the jays just p!ssed away 30 million dollars

"we got two top players that we can add too (bourne,THIS YEAR) and finally have a young nucleus to build around."

That's not true. We have 2 top prospects. Let's call them players after thay have played at the Major League level. Until then, they are prospects.

I'll put my $$ on the CYA winner.

When are the John Buck jerseys getting printed up?

Skorpio520 spoke of them as if they are already stars. They aren't. For as much potential as they may have, they have accomplished nothing at the Major League level. I don't think Cooperstown is calling them yet. After all, didn't we have a HOF pitcher by the name of Paul Wilson? Weren't there 2 others with him?

Ah, he said "two top players". You translated that to "already stars".

I hope he pitches the game that eliminates the Yankees from the post-season.

about the only thing id change in this sentence is instead of saying top players,i meant to say top prospects. generation k was rushed imho.they seemed to have smartened up since then.oh and btw,one of the "other" ones was a young man named,jason isrehausen (izzy,whatever,cant spell this dudes name,never could) who may not have made an impact as a starter but became one of the best closers in baseball.so they werent all flops

D'arnaud is gonna be good.bank on it.syndagaard? i have high hopes for him.

How are they top players? Doesn't that require some accomplishment needed to uphold that claim?
For example: I guess we can say that TDA is the greatest catcher who ever played the game if you want to just make statements. Such a claim would have more validity if he has hit for a high average, with power and has shown great skill behind the plate for several years.

What does "top player: say to you?

That is quite an exaggeration on your part. Where has anyone said anything about HOF for these players? And for that matter will Dickey also go into the Hall?

Complain if you want but at least make it with in reason.
