So who's gonna finish last in the division this year, the Mets or the Marlins?

I'm assuming D'Arnaud will be the greatest prospect ever when he becomes a Met?

Ken Rosenthal ‏@Ken_Rosenthal

Sources: #Mets, #BlueJays have agreement in principle on Dickey trade. Window open for Jays to extend Dickey, which would complete deal.
I know everything about Sixers.

My word means more than a paper.

This actually sounds like a really good trade for the Mets.

Dickey/Thole/prospect for D'Arnaud/Syndergaard/Buck/prospect. Very nice haul for the Mets.

d'arnaud can't stay healthy and doesn't draw many walks. he has good power, but i think hes far from a surefire stud at this point.

Any catcher that tears knee ligaments has to be viewed as a risk. Add the concussions in 201, a bad back in 2010 and you have enough reasons for the Jays to move him. I don't think the Mets were going to find a better deal than that and extending Dickey doesn't make much sense for them. To be honest, I don't think they had the money for him and Wright anyway.

Mets.com:

While trading Dickey might be an admission that the Mets don't expect to contend for a championship in the near future...

Wheeler is their #1 prospect and D'Arnaud is #2. Both should rank pretty high overall. That's really a good haul.

D'Arnaud must stay healthy though and he hasn't managed that so far. Both of these guys have a chance to be pretty hot stuff though.

And oh yeah. Syndergaard is their #3. Yowsa.

Doesn't change the fact that he's been awesome since he's joined them.

yea. I realize he's a knuckle-baller and everything but last season seems like such an anomaly due to age and previous performance. The Mets really did well for themselves in this trade.
