R.A. Dickey Unofficially Off The Yankees Board

The deal that will send reigning National League Cy Young Award winner R.A. Dickey to the Toronto Blue Jays is all but complete, taking him off the Yankees board. The Yankees and the Mets discussed a Dickey to the Bronx trade and realized that we did not have the pieces, or not willing to give up the pieces, to make the deal happen but I still wanted to post that he is coming off the board. The deal is not official and the players named are not officially released yet but the rumors look like this:

Toronto Blue Jays get:

SP - R.A. Dickey

New York Mets get:

C/1B -Travis d'Arnaud
OF - Anthony Gose
C - JP Arencibia

Last night on twitter I was wondering how if it only took Gose and Arencibia to get Dickey that I was upset with the Yankees brass for not at least looking at the cheap upgrade. With the Blue Jays apparently willing to give up their top prospect AND Gose it all makes sense now. Way too much for a 37 year old on a one year deal, extension coming or not. Especially one who makes his living with a "trick pitch" with the knuckle ball.
