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. December 15, 2012 3:18 pm via Mobile Web (M5)ReplyRetweetFavorite @NYPost_Mets Mike Puma According to the Post, “The Blue Jays will not be willing to swap d’Arnaud, who grew up idolozing Mike Piazza, unless Dickey signs an extension with them, Sherman reports on his Twitter. …Toronto must be confident he will with trade talks progressing.” According to Baseball America, d’Arnaud ranks as the #1 prospect in the Blue Jays organization, receiving the highest rankings for both batting average and power in their farm system, while Syndergaard ranked as the team’s top pitching prospect. “[d'Arnaud has] a chance to be an offensive catcher with .275 BA, 20-25 homers,” a scout who has watched him play said, according to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York.  “Works with pitchers well and calls a good game. 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
