    Agree. What are we doing, trying to start a new competition with Dayton Moore?

    Metsblog keeps saying Olt is 25 but he is actually 24.

    his career on-base percentage, in nearly 900 plate appearances, is .275.

    Whoa, I swear I didn't know it was THAT bad. WOW. That's below Rey Ordonez.
    Please tell me he's a Gold Glove caliber catcher.

    and that surprises you that Metsblog isn't accurate?

    Nope.

    He's not really any better a defender than Thole.

    Only in Blue Jay fantasy land. I wouldn't give up Mejia for him. I'd actually prefer they sign Miguel Olivo if the cost is even that high.

    He does potentially have a bit of upside left, but he's not young either, turning 27 in another month. He should be reaching his peak. And he struck out 29% of PA last year, while hitting .233 with a .275 OBP.

    How could they consider trading a 20 game winner fore a .230 catcher. He soulds like Thole with a little pop.

    You don't trade a 20 game winner for an 8th place hitter. You don't trade a 20 game winner for someone you may pinch hit for.

    No way this deal would ever be done.

    JPA would definitly need to be coming here along with others. No way the Mets take him over Olt.

    If Toronto's willing to throw in a prospect I'd take him off their hands, bad production and all.


    But I'd rather talk to them about a trade for Dickey.

    It just makes zero sense the Mets make a deal like that straight up.

    Arencibia's production could be found elsewhere, and it's not like he is 22 with years to grow.

    His prime is now at soon to be 27 years old and although controllable, catcher's of his ilk don't cost 10+ million dollars a season that the Mets would be financially constrained to find a serviceable addition otherwise.

    Martin went for 2 years and 17 million. JPA compares well with him. Saving 6-8 million per until 2016 isn't insignificant.

    However, I don't think JPA alone is enough either (though I think he could be the centerpiece).

    We'll just have to wait and see. I kind of want the Mets to deal Dickey not only because I want them to rebuild their farm and get better but because I'm interested to see what his value is around the league.
