Yahoo - The New York Mets and Toronto Blue Jays are nearing a deal that would send reigning Cy Young winner R.A. Dickey to the Toronto Blue Jays for a package that includes top prospect Travis d’Arnaud, a source close to the negotiations told Yahoo! Sports early Saturday. As the Mets finalized their shopping of Dickey and appeared to settle on the Blue Jays late Friday, the proposed deal grew in size upon Toronto’s willingness to include d’Arnaud, the game’s best catching prospect. While the other players involved could not be confirmed, the source said the teams were in the process of exchanging medical information on the players involved.
D’Arnaud behind the plate for the next 10 years? Yes please. Anthony Gose in the outfield. Ike blasting bombs. Harvey and Wheeler on the bump. The future would be…bright? I cannot believe it. I’d take back everything bad I said about Sandy and his braintrust. A trade like this can instantly change the future.
Now granted this is the Mets so most likely all of these guys will die in a fiery crash or something absurd because none of our prospects aside from DW pan out. Its hard to build a young team when you’re hexed and cursed by God because of his vendetta against a smut blogger KFC.
