Toronto gets;

Josh Thole
Mike Nickeas

The Mets get;

Travis d'Arnaud
John Buck
Noah Syndergaard
Wuilmer Becerra

Considering that the Royals set the market for what it takes to get a a guy who DIDN'T win the Cy Young, I think this is a good trade for the Jays.

Before anyone says last year was a fluke, Dickey had very good seasons the previous two.

Pretty great trade for the Mets. Yes it sucks that a elite pitcher will be traded, but the Mets likely won't compete the next year and two and the Mets have a strong rotation and badly need young offensive help and they got the top catching prospect and easily one of the top prospects in the game and also got a top flight pitching prospect and dumped two bad catchers. Dickey will be missed and the Mets are worse off in the short term, but with the return they got for Beltran and Dickey the last few years the Mets look to be headed in the right direction even though they'll take some lumps along the way. That said short term the Jays are gonna be really good as the Yankees and Red Sox are weakened and the Jays really have a three year window to win with their core. If they don't make the playoffs during that time this trade will not be all that good for them and will cost AA his job.

The biggest retroactive indictment of the Marlins/Jays trade was that the Jays apparently still had their very best prospects available for another trade.

The Big Bossman raised the briefcase.

Dickey at least gave the Mets one day where you weren't likely to see much of the bullpen. I like the trade, but the Mets are probably going to be really terrible next year.
