Re: Dickey to Jays almost done
Great financial deal for the Jays, but the cost in prospects is high. I like Gose (if he can fix his K and contact issues) as a leadoff hitter, especially. I also really like D'Arnaud. This, IMO, makes the Mets much better as early as this year.
A middle of the order including Davis Wright, Ike Davis, and D'Arnaud with Gose and Daniel Murphy is solid, if not spectacular. Add a couple corner OF bats (Duda and Baxter scare no one), and you've got a solid little lineup in front of a middling pitching rotation and a bad bullpen.
