According to the New York Post, the New York Mets are close to trading Cy Young winner RA Dickey to the Blue Jays in a seven-player deal built around elite catching prospect Travis d’Arnaud. #bbpBox_279980459092488192 a { text-decoration:none; color:#0084B4; }#bbpBox_279980459092488192 a:hover { text-decoration:underline; } #Mets #Bluejays still working thru matters, but feeling is they will get deal done to send Dickey to Tor December 15, 2012 11:05 am via TweetDeckReplyRetweetFavorite @Joelsherman1 Joel Sherman #bbpBox_280044122725826562 a { text-decoration:none; color:#DB0F23; }#bbpBox_280044122725826562 a:hover { text-decoration:underline; } So to recap, Dickey, Thole and another player to Jays for d’Arnaud, Buck, Syndergaard and another player was on table this morning.

Still needs work blocking balls to his right. Future good No. 6 hitter with potential leadership.” Whether you agree or disagree with the decision to trade R.A., you have to give Sandy Alderson and the Metsexcutives a ton of credit. First of all, it’s a bold move to trade a fan favorite — coming off a Cy-Young Award winning season — for prospects. More impressively then having the stones to make such a move is the fact the GM will have added three of the top 50 prospects in baseball with two trades.  As Sherman tweets, that is #prettygood. #bbpBox_280142677209649152 a { text-decoration:none; color:#0084B4; }#bbpBox_280142677209649152 a:hover { text-decoration:underline; } If this goes thru, Alderson will have cashed Beltran/Dickey into 3 Top 50 prospects: Wheeler/d’Arnaud/Syndergaard. #Mets #prettygood December 15, 2012 9:49 pm via webReplyRetweetFavorite @Joelsherman1 Joel Sherman
