Default RA Dickey to the Blue Jays

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.

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.

Knuckleballers are usually late-bloomers.

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.

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.

Didn't he just start throwing it recently?
