MLB.com’s Anthony DiComo Discusses Dickey Trade on Game On [AUDIO]
Now that R.A. Dickey has agreed to a contract extension with the suddenly stellar Blue Jays, the trade is complete. The New York Mets have traded the reigning Cy Young award winner and platoon catchers Mike Nickeas and Josh Thole for catching prospect Travis d’Arnaud, single-A pitcher Noah Syndergaard, Wuilmer Becerra and journeyman John Buck.
It’s always difficult to digest a trade involving prospects, given that they are such an unknown commodity. With that in mind, Anthony DiComo, Mets writer for MLB.com joined Game On earlier today to shed some light onto the young talent the Mets received. DiComo and Bruce discussed the upside of prized addition d’Arnaud, the realistic timetable for his debut as well as other issues and concerns facing the front office.
