In my opinion that is a fair deal. Blue Jays are getting a 26 year old lefty with contract control and has already tapped into his potential. He is just entering his prime.
JPA is a decent player. He has power but lets face it he is a .220 hitter. Gose and Syndergaard are both to risky for the Mets to accept just one in a deal. I don't see the Mets taking a deal of just JPA, Gose. I think Syndergaard would need to be included. In no way is is Gose and JPA an equivalent talent to Niese. If Gose reaches close to his ceiling its different but more talented players fail then succeed.
I knew there was a reason I liked you.
