Toronto Going Hard For Dickey

The deal for R.A. Dickey has not been consummated yet, but if you had any doubts whether or not Toronto's desires for Dickey were strong, this tweet by Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports should quell those doubts.

Yes, my fellow Mets fans.  The Blue Jays have a major hard-on for Dickey and are willing to go south of the border to grab him, even offering top catching prospect Travis d'Arneau when they weren't willing to do the same for those teams who did not have a Dickey to dangle.

I'm sure I'll have more on this potential pitcher-for-catcher deal involving Dickey and a B. Jay as we go deeper into the night.  Stay tuned!

Haven't I seen you on Scott Hairston's Wikipedia page before?

If this happens it will be a sad day in Mets history. Does Tom Seaver ring a bell?

The Mets were just beginning going downhill in 1977 when Seaver was dealt. I think the current Mets, with four consecutive losing seasons, have just about gone as far down as they can. There's no place to go but up!

How can you misspell the catcher's name when a tweet ith thw correct spelling is embedded right in your article? Sloppy and unprofessional
