    Think more Brian McCann.
    Thank you gentlemen for the info. I'll take a Brian McCann clone anytime to be our starting catcher.

    He'd be fine as a throw in to replace Thole. He'd just hold d'Arnadu's spot until he's ready.

    If you're shipping Thole, you'll want a decent 2nd catcher not named Mike Nickeas or Rob Johnson TDA won't be in the ML for atleast a month into the season.

    Becareful. Saltalamacchia had more hype than TDA and he turned into nothing. Prospects are crapshoots.

    Dickey, Thole, Flores for TDA, Gose, Syndergaard, and Buck is fair.

    These Jays fans are really acting as if TDA, Gose, and Synder are already proven MLB stars or at least guaranteed to be great MLB players. Seriously we'd be lucky if one was great and another was decent.

    That's more than fair for a proven Cy Young winner, plus a good hitting prospect.
    I agree...fair deal. If we insist on Gose they have the right to ask for a possible thirdbaseman of the future. The two teams match up well..we have a surplus of thirdbaseman so lets do it. I would be disappointed if Gose wasn't included because we would not have improved the outfield and our best chip was gone. And if tor is worried about JP catching the knuckler than asking for Thole makes sense and we would need Buck back in the deal....also having a veteran catcher here would help TDA grow with instant pressure to perform.

    Is this a feeling or a hope?

    If feeling, what makes you think that?

    Brett Lawrie?

    I don't know. Doesn't really make sense to add the Gose-Flores part in from the Jays POV.

    Andy Martino said no dnags in the deal, still working the quantity of players.

    They said don't expect a deal tonight but I would expect something by Monday

    Buck makes sense as he'd hold it down until TDA is called up, plus Jays would have 3 catchers. Selfishly hope it's not Flores but it would be worth it if Gose is included. I like JA Happ too. Still young, good arm and I think he'd be better than Gee.

    Blue Jays are doing the right thing going for it. It doesn't matter if it is D'Arnaud and Syndergaard you're giving up because Dickey could give you a World Series. Maybe in a few years these prospects sucks and thanks AA for the trade.

    I think it will be a win for either side unless the players the Mets are getting don't live up to their potential.

    Its a fair trade for either side because u guys get an ace and other specs and we get possibly a perennial all star catcher and an OF with tremendous speed and good upside for many years to come.

    Latest information I've seen is that Gose is no longer in the deal.

    Maybe Sandy has his doubts as to Gose's real potential. I have some doubt too, but we really need a CF and Gose is still very young. I'd try like hell to get Alex A to keep Gose in the package, even if I had to add another prospect to do it.

    Buck is a better back-up than Recker, but I'd just as soon he weren't in the deal. I guess it is to get the Mets to take on some salary. My ideal deal is still d'Arnaud, Gose, Syndergaard and a lower level prospect, but I'd take Buck as the fourth player too.

    If I had to give up Dickey, Thole, and Flores or Familia to do it, I would. I'd even add a lower level prospect to our side of the deal.
