It looks as though the New York Mets might be sending pitcher and last year’s National League Cy Young Award winner, R.A. Dickey to the Toronto Blue Jays. It seems that the Mets are looking to have a rebuilding year and are looking to get top value for their ace pitcher especially after winning the Cy Young Award.
In regards to players that would be involved in the deal it looks like Blue Jays outfielder Anthony Gose would go to the Mets and one of Toronto’s catchers; Travis d’Arnaud or J.P. Arencibia. Even with the Blue Jays getting Mark Buehrle and Josh Johnson earlier this off season from the Marlins, the Jays are still wanting to add more solid pitchers to the rotation. Dickey is looking to have a contract to go through the 2015 season and is looking to get around $25 million for the entire length of his contract. Last year Dickey had a record of20-6 with a 2.73 ERA and the Blue Jays are looking for that trend to continue for the knuckleball pitcher. Sources say that deal looks like it will go through and it is just a matter of time.
