The Cubs?

Don't really get that...but 5/75 is still a slight overpay for Sanchez

A win now contract on a rebuilding team. I don't get it either.

Do the Cubs realize that Sanchez doesn't get to pitch against the Yankees every start?

Looks like Ichiro gets 2 years/13 M over 2 seasons from the Yanks.

Shouldn't take long for the Yankees to realize that offering 2 years to Ichiro but not to Martin was a tremendous tactical mistake.

It's way easier to find a decent corner outfielder than a catcher.

Good point, especially when you consider the age difference.

Signs point to #bluejays leading in dickey chase. Have the prospects to get it done.

Jon Heyman ‏@JonHeymanCBS
Blue jays want to keep d'arnaud but have arencibia and others. Also have OFs. Trade seems like strong possibility.

Jon Heyman ‏@JonHeymanCBS
Orioles and rangers don't seem in middle of dickey talks at moment. As said, blue jays are frontrunners

Say it aint so... Please..

Why not just sit tight and see where we're at? This is overkill IMO..

On paper the team looks great, but we've seen many teams be good on paper and suck on the diamond.. I think it would be foolish to give up the wealth of prospects in one offseason with no guarentees we're even ready to go deep in October.

In reality though, AA said himself that if we hear rumors, look the other way... Many GM's say this, but Alex has proven that he keeps it close to the chest.. I would bet its purely speculation based on the simple knowledge that AA inquired..

Dickey wants an extension and I'd much prefer to keep some money in the bank and extend JJ if his play warrants the cash. I highly doubt theres room for two 18-22 million dollar pitchers next year.. If Johnson pitches well, he'll likely want Greinke money. Not to mention both Buehrle and Reyes' contracts being backloaded...

Nobody can question what Alex has done so far this offseason, but this move would be very questionable IMO.. Especially considering what they Mets have reportedly asked for from Boston. Too rich for my liking.

@jonmorosi: #BlueJays have the pieces to do this -- Gose and Arencibia or D'Arnaud -- although I do not have confirmation that is the offer.

Jays might give up Gose and Arencibia or D'Arnaud for a 38 year old with one year left on his deal?

I think Dickey will get lit up in the AL East.

He's actually pitched quite well facing AL opponents as a starter. Despite that, I just don't think Dicky would be a good move, especially since he was contemplating retirement just a year or two ago. Without an agreed extension in place, I think it would be too risky. Would much rather target Niese.

The Baltimore Orioles have the acceptable offer on the table for Dickey #Mets #O's, Alderson seeing if he can play Toronto

Britton, Delmonico/ Schoop and what... not a fan.

Arencibia is awful. No idea why the Mets would want him. His only good tool, his power, would be mitigated in Citi.

True but if I was AA D'arnaud would be completely untouchable.

Arencibia is pretty popular among casual jays fans but he is an average player at best. The only thing he really has gong for him is he still has time to improve.
