Mets agreed to send RA Dickey and Josh Thole to the Blue Jays in exchange for Travis d'Naurd, John Buck and a minor league pitcher. The Blue Jays do have a 72 hour window to try and extend Dickey.

Never trust anyone with an apostrophe in their name.

I thought D'Arnaud was their franchise player?

I guess that means they're sticking with Arencibia.

Extension reportedly signed.

Wow. Last years' Toronto 1-2 is now their 4-5. They've gotta be feeling pretty good that Ricky Romero, just one year removed from a great season, is their #5.

And he probably could've held out for more than $25 million over 2 years.

Seems like the rare win/win trade. Really like the Jays going for it and that is a huge return on a real wild card for the Mets.

Don't knuckleballers have trouble indoors? Correct me if not.

Heyman tweeted that Dickey has a 1 something ERA indoors, specifically in the Tropicana Dome. Also the Rogers Centre has a retractable roof so that shouldn't be too much of a problem.

I remember Dickey being pretty terrible with Minnesota, hard to believe how he's turned his career around.

And he's going to be 38 this year? Wow, one of the wilder roller coasters of a career. :o:

Knuckleballers are usually late-bloomers.

I dont know about late bloomers but they can be long stayers.

Didn't he just start throwing it recently?

I thought he started throwing it at the end of his tenure in Texas.

Yep.

Decided to use it almost exclusively to begin 2006, gave up six homers in his first start, and was sent down to AAA.

Bovada has made the jays the fav to win it all at 15-2.

Jays have been bringing prospects through the system to no avail for quite some time, looks like they got tired of it.

Takes notes, Kansas City. THIS is how you go for it all.

Yes. Exactly why many would like to see Chris Sale develop more offspeed weapons. With his sidearm style the knuckle-curve would be a good and devastating pitch. Would be cool if could get some consult with retired Burt Hooten who had like a 30 win season with that pitch. Thats what RA Dickey really signifies for the White Sox.:cool:

Thats what RA Dickey really signifies for the White Sox.:cool: I'm going to think that you exaggerated a bit there. Hooton certainly was a solid SP for the Dodgers from 1975-81. Another guy who blossomed when he left the Cubs, and yes that knuckle curve was at times pretty unhittable.

The most wins Hooten ever had in a season was 19.

OK I stand corrected. I guess one season Hooton got off to a great start and was slated to win 30 but ended up with 19. Still a hella pitch the knucklecurve and Sale is just the man to learn it.
