    It's a two year 25 million dollar extension, which adds up to a third year being three years for 30 million?


    Toronto Gyarados.
    NHL Pokemon logo's for the win.

    Slight correction: Dickey's signing bonus from the Jays will apply in 2012 -- immediately -- not 2013.
    Again, no prob.

    Great news. This makes it better. I honeslty thought it was going to be a two or three year deal worth at least 35 million-45 million.

    The Mets got a nice return for RA Dickey, but getting a frontline starter for what looks like 3/30 is a solid move for Toronto too.

    Yeah it makes way more sense when you factor the dollars in.

    Even with the trades, Toronto still has Sanchez, Osuna, Stroman, Davis, Alford, Barreto and Tirado. That's how you build a deep farm system.

    d'Arnaud and Syndergaard are obviously the entire Jays farm system.... and those two guys are the only guys there who has any chance of being a good ball player.

    So there's that.


    Had to be done! Go T-Rex

    #Bluejays getting beaten up for giving up major prospects for 38-yr-old knuckleballer, but not long ago were getting beaten up for overvaluing/hoarding prospects. Never make all happy. key will be winning in 3-yr window #Bluejays have now given self to do that

    #Bluejays believe Dickey is an ace who can stay at the level from 2013-15 and that cost in $ for that type in free agency is so much greater by comparison than 2 hi-level prospects, plus would that ace go to Canada in fr agency. #Bluejays saw this as deal had to do.
