Blue Jays On Verge of Landing R.A. Dickey?

According to various reports it appears the Toronto Blue Jays are in advanced talks with the New York Mets about 2012 NL Cy Young award winner R.A. Dickey. 

According to MLBTR:

All signs point to the Mets trading R.A. Dickey, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports (on Twitter). The sides aren’t progressing toward an extension, and Dickey’s one-year, $5MM salary seems quite appealing to teams seeking pitching. Here are today’s Dickey rumors, with the most recent items up top…

  • The Mets may be landing d’Arnaud in the deal, Heyman tweets.
  • Travis d’Arnaud was a “must have” during the winter meetings for a deal with the Blue Jays to happen, sources tell Andy Martino of the Daily News (via Twitter).
  • Two sources involved in the talks say not to expect any resolution with Dickey tonight, tweets Anthony DiComo of

There was a lot of talk after the winter meetings finished that the two sides had discussed different scenerios in which RA Dickey would head to Toronto but it has seemingly become a lot closer to being finalized.  I would have to assume that if the Blue Jays are pondering moving our top prospect (two years running) in catcher Travis d’Arnaud that the deal would possibly bring back more than just R.A. Dickey.

Would I like to add another starter?  Absolutely.  Would I mind adding R.A. Dickey?  Not at all.  Would I like to see the Blue Jays depleted system take another serious hit for one 38-year old knuckleballer?  Absolutely not.  Let’s reserve judgment until if and when this deal might come to fruition.

Besides, isn’t the very fact we are even discussing this mean there is no chance Alex Anthopoulos is actually going to pull it off?

What are your thoughts?

    The second set is that of a passing offensive play.
    The sportsmen using steroids field game is one of those movies
    that never ends. Not just accepting that it happens, Why shouldn’t we
    sit down relax, and say to it, to be definite. You can
    also term sportsmen using steroids it as a punishment.
    When that obligation is neglected, innocent children pay
    the price.

    I believe everything said was actually very logical. However,
    think about this, what if you were to create a awesome title?
    I ain’t saying your content isn’t solid., however suppose you added something that makes people desire more?
    I mean Blue Jays On Verge of Landing R.A. Dickey? | AL Eastbound & Down is
    a little vanilla. You might look at Yahoo’s front page and note how they write news
    titles to get people interested. You might try adding a video or a related picture or
    two to grab readers interested about what you’ve written.
    In my opinion, it would bring your website a little bit more interesting.
