Dickey - one of my favorite Mets ever - gets his long awaited payday. Well deserved!!!
The Jays get a CY winner at an affordable rate and maybe just won a division
The Mets add two well regarded prospects to the farm. I'm not a huge d'Arnaud fan (admit he's a legit prospect so I have no complaints on that score) but Syndergaard excites me. Love those high upside arms
Sandy does the right thing and leveraged an asset we didn't need for an appropriate return.
Everybody wins in this thing. How cool is that!
The best trades are always the ones that help both teams. This appears to be one of those trades. Good job guys, good job all around.
The other good news is that none of the players involved can come back to bite the other team in the @ss. That's always a nice peripheral benefit. LOL
Yes Hats off to Sandy Alderson . As a Jays fans I'm well aware we overpaid for RA but he will propel this team of ours into playoff caliber talent . I'm a huge Dickey fan .
Mets got two top prospects . Top 50 in baseball I think . D'Arnaud if he can stay healthy is a top 5 catcher for the next 10 years . Syndergarrd is our top pitching prospect on a team DEEP in pitching prospects . This guy has top of rotation written all over him . Reminds us of two guys we developed Halladay and Carpenter. Not saying he has a career like them but he has that type of potential.
Trust Alderson , He can build a winner even on a wilpon budget .
