    Do you have a link or source for the payroll parimeters for 2013? Or any other type of proof to say that others are wrong?

    Until AA or Beeston tells us what the ceiling is on the payroll this year, and tell the truth, nobody really has a clue how much we have to spend. Hell for all we know they could have 100+m to spend.
    But sadly I would expect thats part of the "cone of silence" so we can only guess.

    Davidi laid it out. I refuse to believe the Jays are going to increase the budget by 30% to push the team over 100m+. Makes no economic sense. This team was 23rd out of 30 in attendance and as Rogers has shown, balancing the books is important. There's always that phantom money 'for the right player' though. For whatever thats worth..

    I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

    Which isn't evidence.

    That's like saying "I have a good feeling" = something true

    No, that's not like saying that at all. What it is, is Davidi's educated guess.

    A very educated guess at that

    Would you guys be interested in Dickey?

    How does a package of D'Arnaud and Gose/Rasmus sound? Maybe JPA, Marisnick, and another prospect would be good too.

    I really, really doubt TDA gets traded for a 38yr old pitcher, I dont care how good he was.

    JPA you can have, i'll pack him myself.

    Way too much, the Jays are not giving up their top prospect plus an MLB CF for a 38 year old knuckle ball pitcher who isn't signed beyond this year ( no matter how awesome he was this season). I would love to see Dickey in Toronto but not at the price I think the Mets would command. The timing isn't right for Toronto on this one unfortunately.

    Davidi did lay it out and said that he had no idea what the parameters were. I suggest you go back and read it carefully. He use $100m as a figure to keep it easy.

    You're high... Why on earth would the Jays trade the best catching prospect in baseball for a 38 year old knuckleballer with one good year (abeit, a fantastic one).

    I'd absolutely trade for Dickey but D'Arnaud is untouchable unless we're talking about someone like King Felix. I'd consider trading JPA for him + a lesser prospect, sign him to a 3 year deal with an option incase he's still throwing it a la Wakefield and hope it works out. No clue how he'd do in the AL East? Though given his numbers last year I suspect he'd not have any problems.

    I would trade JPA and Marisnick in a package for Dickey in a heartbeat but doubt the mets are interested
