The starting pitchers market for nediocre to below average pitchers is pretty high. Maybe its just the Twins. $10/2 for Correia and $4/1 for Pelfrey with incentives. Turns out non-tendering Jeff Karstens wasnt the best move

Pirates should go after Villanueva.

If we can move Hanrahan + another piece for Porcello Id prefer that, but I doubt Detroit does that. We have some young back end guys who might be ready. Villanueva would be ok. Its just a bit off for the market for 5th/mop up depth

RA Dickey for the Blue Jays #1 and #3 prospect? well done Sandy, well done.

i wish Dickey nothing but success in Toronto, I'm glad he got his money. Under other circumstances, I would've loved to keep him, but this trade makes a lot of sense. I hope this guy pans out, and solves our catching problem for the next 6 years.

2012 Starting Staff: 1) Santana 2) Niese 3) Gee 4) Harvey 5)(we need to sign someone) 6)wheeler/mejia
2012 Lineup: 1)Kirk 2)Tejada 3)Wright 4)Ike 5)Duda 6)Murphy 7)Buck 8)Baxter

okay the mets need to sign a journeyman pitcher and journeyman outfielder, BADLY.

I think he at least realizes this is probably a transition year.

If the Mets end up getting Noah Syndergaard and Travis D'Arnaud from the Jays, Sandy Alderson should be GM of the year for life
It's a good return, but not insane.

considering the jays gave up their #1 position player and, arguably, their #1 pitching prospects for a 38 year old journeyman with essentially 2 years of success, i'd say that's pretty crazy - knuckleball or not.


EDIT: on the other hand, if you're going to trade the reigning NL cy young award winner, this is how it's done.

I agree, but I do like the Lannan and Adams signings although I think they overpaid a little bit for Adams.

Also my reaction to everything the Blue Jays are doing

Props to them though if they actually make the postseason this year.

Yeah, don't really mind them. I'd rather we just use Cloyd, though.
