    Good number actually as well. There was speculation he'd only be happy with 2/$28-30M.

    And ya, that Rotation is SICK, WICKED and NASTY.
    As I keep trying to tell the excuse makers - "wahh! No one will sign in Toronto! Waaah! No one will come to Toronto cause it's Canadian! Waaaah" - if you actually build a good team you can get guys to sign and.... they won't even charge a premium.

    I'd wager a hefty sum Dickey says he made the deal at $25 cause he wants to win. Novel idea.

    EDIT: Also, this is how you WIN NOW! Not by doing small, isolated deals and trying to nurture young players at the same time. Doesn't work. You are either rebuilding or you go for it. Colangelo, take notes....

    Deal's official. 3 yrs at 29m, not 2.. Pretty good deal, here's to him staying healthy.

    Toronto officially acquired Dickey, catcher Josh Thole and Minor League catcher Mike Nickeas in the seven-player trade that was announced Monday evening. The Mets received top catching prospect Travis d'Arnaud, right-hander Noah Syndergaard, catcher John Buck and Minor Leaguer Wuilmer Becerra.

    The two teams came to terms over the weekend, but the deal was contingent on the Blue Jays and Dickey being able to agree to an extension. That happened Monday morning, when Toronto tore up the final year of Dickey's contract and signed him to a three-year contract valued at $29 million plus a club option worth $12 million in 2016.

    WOW ... Well he was set to make $5M this year, but they "tore up the final year of his deal, and signed him to a 3-year $29M" ... If I understand everything correctly, which I think I do, thats actually LESS than the reported $25M .. technically. The $25M plus the $5M he's set to make would earn him $30M over 3 years.
    AA you've done it again.

    Yeah I think it's a good deal for AA but I don't necessarily think he should make the money Halladay makes because he's older and he's only had 3 good years so far, I'm not saying he won't keep it up but I think that's a pretty good reason not to give him 15M+ a year which is why I think he accepted less.
