The winter of the Toronto Blue Jays continued as they were able to come to terms with reigning National League Cy Young Award winner RA Dickey on a two year extension worth $25 million. The deal also includes a 2016 option worth $12 million. With the two sides coming to an agreement, the trade between the New York Mets and the Blue Jays is finally complete. The Blue Jays will receive Dickey and two catchers, Josh Thole and Mike Nickeas. The Mets will receive highly touted catching prospect Travis d’Arnaud, right handed pitching prospect Noah Syndergaard, and 18 year old outfielder Wuilmer Becerra.
The trade not only illustrates the directions that each franchise is heading, but it also is confirmation of a new way of operating for each club. For Toronto, it means they are operating strictly in the present.
