Just to show how little I follow baseball, this is the first time I've heard of either player involved in the trade lol
The Jays time is now. I think giving up futures for a guy like Dickey is a good move. You can't always be preparing yourself for the future. At some point in time you have to say it's now of never and go all in for a couple of years.

Dickey on (rough) average over the last 2 years has pitched 200 innings and has an ERA of about 3. Those are solid numbers and since he has averaged that the last 3 years I think we can assume he will do that for at least 1 more since his numbers have improved over the last 3 years.
