For those unfamiliar with Travis D'Arnaud, he's the best catching prospect in the minor leagues. Big bat/arm, superb makeup. Future star.
He's a high floor type of guy. He should carve out a really nice career and maybe hit a few all-star games. You should expect something like .275-.285, .330, 15-20 HR
Top 10 catcher in all likelihood, but unlikely to be a star in the true sense of the world. I don't want to give that up, I hate JPA's game. I'm not sure if he's worth giving up for Dickey, but let's all stop acting like he's a Buster Posey/Matt Wieters type of prospect.
D'Arnaud is a big pickup and it is the type of pickup the Mets are aiming for in a deal for Dickey. I HONESTLY do not see any way in hell the Mets are not getting D'Arnaud back.
Lets just put it this way. After last years failure and Reyes drama and etc. If they give up Dickey for JPA + Gose, expect the Mets to be empty next year.
I'm a big Yankee fan but I'd hope for the Mets to get some great players out of this deal and finally have a team again.
