R.A. Dickey and the Blue Jays have agreed to a 2-year $25 million extension and has just landed in Florida at the Blue Jays spring training facility to take a medical exam. Blue Jays GM Alex Anthopoulos flew down to Dickey's Nashville home to personally negotiate with R.A. and his agent and quickly came to a deal. I am a little surprised Dickey didn't get more money than he did because he held all the leverage as well as there were reports he was asking for 3 years from the Jays. They did structure the deal to give him more money next year to help with the Canadian taxes and all that stuff.

A lot of applause for the Mets around the league by being able to pull this deal off cause this d'Arnaud is so highly touted around the league as well as Snydergaard. I like the deal from the Jays perspective also cause now they have a pretty damn solid rotation and have a legit shot at winning the east this season.
