R.A. Dickey going to Toronto Blue Jays

espn.com / 12-17-12

Cy Young winner R.A. Dickey has reached an agreement with the Toronto Blue Jays on a two-year, $25 million extension, pending a physical, that will allow Toronto and the New York Mets to complete their trade, sources tell ESPN's Buster Olney.

Dickey will be getting the dollar value that he had requested in failed extension talks with the Mets. Some of the money will be paid out immediately this year, along with his $5 million salary, in the form of a signing bonus to offset the difference in taxes between the United States and Canada. The sides are still haggling over how much money will be front-loaded, sources said.

SNIP

ESPNNewYork.com's Adam Rubin reported earlier Monday that the Mets will receive highly regarded catching prospect Travis d'Arnaud and Class A right-hander Noah Syndergaard from Toronto. The teams also will exchange catchers, with Josh Thole headed to Toronto and John Buck to the Mets.

The Blue Jays will include cash to lessen the Mets' responsibility for Buck's $6 million salary. Other prospects also will be included in the trade, a league source said.

Blue Jays are going for broke in 2013.

3. AL East should be interesting next year

Blue Jays suddenly look dangerous, the Orioles could still win 80 or so games and the Yanks and Rays will still be their usual contender selves. The Red Sox will still suck, but you have four teams all capable of winning at least 80 games.

4. As the nuns in school used to say, "Out of the frying pan...

...and into the fire."

Can't imagine Toronto ever being any good.

7. Dumb Move by the Mets

Dickey was not only a great player, but he's one of the best people in all of sports. He gave the Mets fans a reason to like their team.
