    I agree. I said this last year as well though so I wouldn't be surprised if he stinks the place up again. I can just picture his terrible swing against breaking balls in my head right now.

    I wish the WBC started earlier (say late Jan/early Feb)...I'm already antsy for spring training.

    Apologies if you interpreted my comment like that. I was merely trying to say that we got a cy young pitcher in the trade. Considering Greinke is gone, there are no free agents available of that...

    Exactly. You're arguing the Jays would have been better off keeping their prospects and not landing Dickey. I'm arguing the opposite.

    We have a 2-3 year window with our roster being in their prime...

    If you want to improve the club immediately (ie. without waiting for prospects) you have no choice but to pay that absurd market price. You can't have your cake and eat it too.

    As a Jays fan, I consider it an overpayment, but when you look at the market costs of pitching (FA such as Greinke, or through trades like Shields), I don't think it was an unfair trade. Most league...

    True, but I think you're underestimating just how dominant Dickey has been lately. On top of that, he is CHEAP and regardless of his age, knuckle ballers have less injuries and can pitch longer into...

    Agreed. We are stuck with him, so we may as well see (and hope) that he continues where he left off last season. If he craps the bed, release him quickly and don't let it drag on all season.

    People would have freaked if we traded Snider and Cecil for a Cy Young winner a few years ago as well. People need to realize that in base, more than any other sport, prospects flame out. I will...

    We traded our top prospects who were on the verge of being MLB ready; however, we have a ton of high ceiling guys who were drafted in the past couple years that will be ready in another few....

    The thing with giving up prospects is that they're no sure thing. If TdA and Syndegaard both become all-stars, it could bite us. However, there's a chance both become nothing, zip, nada. TdA...

    Keep in mind the Jays had little leverage in the Halladay trade because Doc wouldn't go anywhere else.

    I hate Lind and want him gone, but he actually hit quite well after he returned from AAA last year. No one is going to take his contract through a trade so we are stuck with him anyways unless we...

    For the price, would anyone have been opposed to bringing Yunel back to play 2B and trade one or both of Izturis/Bonifacio?

    Assuming, of course, that Yunel would even be willing to play 2B.

    With TDA's injury, I'm fairly certain he either starts in the minors to see if he can resume where he left off or gets traded in the off-season.

    My guess would be seeing him start in AAA and if he...
