Baseball is the most fickle sport.
travis d'arnaud was heavily discussed w/ toronto as well as arencibia. hearing #mets may be landing d'arnaud. unconfirmed
Will be surprised if its just Dickey in the deal if Heyman is correct about d'arnaud.
If we get TDA I will be ecstatic.
Best 1-5 starting rotation in the Bigs hands down. You're getting 4 pitchers that were aces for their respective clubs. Dickey with NYM, Johnson with Miami, Buerhle with CWS and Morrow with Toronto.
If I was the Mets I'd be demanding TDA. You'd be better off just keeping him and getting the compensation if he walks. On the other hand, if I'm Toronto, I want nothing to do with a 38 year old, one year wonder for any of my major leaguers or my top prospects. I don't understand the infatuation with Dickey. I'd be very weary of him.
I know the disappointment but as Jays fans we should also just remember he's just a prospect. He looks like a damn good one and I'd hate the trade from that standpoint but I know Dickey is a sure thing, I can't say the same about d'Arnaud.
Again, I dont disagree with you...
My wishful thinking Mets fan thinks D'Arnaud has to be headed to the Mets, because I think the Mets would rather take a Olt package from TEX over any possible Jays package not including TDA
