    TDA or bust honestly, we need an impact player. selling short on dickey would be ridiculous
    This is just the beginning. Let's keep it up. History is bound to repeat itself. Let's hope that this time it's for the best.

    Plawecki will be our future back-up if we get D'Arnaud.

    TDA is just a much better hitter and defender. He might have less pop though. He had a .914 OPS in AA so he's a very good prospect.

    JP is a freaking .220 hitter. You can find a .220 hitting older catcher anywhere.

    It's TDA or no trade.

    I don't see how what I posted there disagrees with what you are saying?

    What I don't understand is the love for trumbo but the hate for JPA.

    Trumbo is a rich mans JPA with no position.

    Trumbo has legit power in a pitcher's ballpark. His first half last year was incredible, I personally think the HR derby ****ed him up. He can play a passable LF. He can make an impact with us.

    One thing this brings up is that if the Mets' first intent all along has been to deal Dickey, then criticism of Alderson for not making other moves is baseless because clearly he was waiting to see what if anything transpired with R.A. and what players he might receive in return. Part of that also required the market to open up after free agents like Greinke and Sanchez, et. al. were under contract.

    Bottom line is that the knee jerk reactions to the Mets walking away from the winter meetings without a significant acquisition were premature and intellectually irresponsible.
    "The 90 wins is about challenge. It's about changing the conversation. It's about framing questions for ourselves as to how we get there. So I stand by the notion that we need to get better, and in doing so we need to set concrete goals for ourselves so that we have sort of specific conversations among ourselves about how we're going to get there." -- Mr. Alderson

    Sherman is reporting that Dickey will not sign an extension with the jays.

    Could have still signed a pen arm or something.

    I'll be extremely disappointed if we don't get TDA in a trade. It's not worth trading a guy like Dickey for so many reasons that have been overstated...unless if were for a can't miss prospect. The Blue Jays need to pay up.

    LOL

    Trumbo has immense power. He could have seasons of 40 HR's, plus he'll always have a higher avg than JP, kinda like everyone in the league does.

    JP doesn't compare to Trumbo.... WTF!!!

    "Travis d'Arnaud was a "must have" during the winter meetings for a deal with the Blue Jays to happen, sources tell Andy Martino of the Daily News (via Twitter)"

    The Mets are going to get TDA if a trade with TOR happens. In fact, they are gonna get TDA plus if he signs an extension.... watch!

    We'll if you look at his homerun tracker 6 of his homeruns last season would be questionable in NYM stadium while 0 would be for JPA.

    I also think players like JPA and Trumbo who rely on power (HR) and don't get on base are inherently streaky.

    If you remove JPA first month when he was one of the worst players in baseball for example he likely finishes with an OPS similar to Trumbo.

    He also had an OPS of .767 post all star break. Do those numbers mean anything? Not in my book. Just the mark of a streaky player.
