That's one of the benefits of being based in Toronto-- any starter they acquire instantly becomes a TOR starter
In all seriousness, though, I agree that the deal makes sense for the Jays. Dickey has been consistently good since he started throwing the knuckler, and if the deal really does come with an extension on the order of 2/26, it seems pretty cost-effective.
