my view was either trade both or extend both. this whole standoff smacks of the kind of pettiness the wilpons have been famous for...to initially offer a 2/16 extension is pretty ridiculous and to top it off by floating that "mets brass" is upset at dickey's newfound celebrity is just classic mets. i get that dickey is old, that there is still skepticism about his future success, but seeing what guys like dempster, blanton, guthrie are getting (none of whom are young guys) and then the mets' initial offer is comedy
of course, removing sentimentality for the equation, selling high and getting d'arnaud/gose would make me pretty happy, honestly
@TBrownYahoo: Phillies, Mike Adams close on two-year deal with vesting option. Club expects deal to happen. Could be as soon as tomorrow.
Jeff Passan @JeffPassan
Source: Mets and Blue Jays on the verge of deal that would send R.A. Dickey to Toronto, Travis D'Arnaud to Mets. Teams looking at medicals.
There would be more players involved in the trade than Dickey and D'Arnaud. They are the principals.
I'm wondering who else Toronto is getting. What other holes do they have on the ML roster right now? 1B?
Assuming D'Arnaud and Gose, the Jays will have dealt 4 of their top 5 prospects, right?
bah, that's a good pickup. wish the mets could have got him, but beyond their price range most likely
2/12 for Adams. Too much for a set-up guy, but I guess the Phillies have plenty of money.
Andy Martino confirms Gose and D'Arnaud in the deal to NY, but additional names on either side are still unknown.

I bought and currently wearing a Dickey Mets T-shirt jersey in memory of Dickey. :(
well, there's that then
why do i have this sinking feeling the mets added something valuable to the deal?
@JSalisburyCSN: RT/ Sources: Phillies have agreement with LHP John Lannan, pending a physical. #Nationals
$2.5M for Lannan is actually a pretty nice deal.
Brilliant move. Lannan is a star against 29 teams in the league but he is a dud against Philly. He won't have to face them now so his numbers should be good. sub 4 era, 1.2 WHIP, 60 GB%.
That groan you hear is from Atlanta. That's at least three guaranteed losses for them next year. I really didn't see him ending up in Philly. Mixed emotions for sure. Wanted to wish him well from afar. Oh well.
no gose in potential dickey trade? fuck that!
The is sort of a fun fact :
@PatGallen_975: That's fun. MT @jaysonst: #Phillies agree to deal w/ Lannan, pending physical. 3-13, 5.53 vs Phillies, 39-39, 3.80 vs everyone else.
hes still awful. and the mike adams deal makes no sense. i love RAJ. poor offseason and he hasnt even made that big splash for an old player.
media covering the mets beginning the smear campaign. shocking!
the Adams deal makes the MOST sense out of anything he has done so far. stop saying stupid things. stick to your teams (plural) its more money than a setup guy should get obviously, but its all relative to what you are desperate for as a team.......that was a GREAT signing for the Phillies team.
yes, Lannan sucks...I was just being funny with the earlier comment.....I hate him......its not a ton of $$ so I am not that pissed.
RAJ hasnt wasted big $$$ on big/long contracts for guys who dont deserve them....he is finally learning.....thankfully
adams was bad last year, losing velocity fast AND he is coming off surgery. lol @ great signing.
I hate that trade. This takes away the Mets ability to compete in the near future. Either go all in or all out. Don't go with that in the middle bullshit. That indecisiveness was the sole reason Isiah didn't work with the Knicks.
Adams is a really good deal. They aren't overpaying for the guy and he's having surgery to correct the issue. I think this has been a really good offseason for the Phillies minus Michael Young.
Wouldn't be too surprised if we capped things off with Cody Ross who, despite my personal hatred, wouldn't be the worst signing in the world.
They have about 7 million left to spend for this year. I said before the FA season that I wanted Adams and Ross. I feel like you that Ross will be a Phillie and then Rube is done.
If only he could have blown his $$ on Upton and dealt for Walden. Can't have everything I guess!
$10M signing bonus
Detroit evidently isn't too fond of Hanrahan so the Pirates may not be in the Porcello sweepstakes after all :(
Not quite final yet, but deal is Dickey, Thole, non-elite prospect for D'Arnaud, Snydergaard, Buck, non-elite prospect
