Jays, Dickey reportedly agree to an extension

The Toronto Blue Jays have come to an agreement on an extension with the reigning NL Cy Young-winner for a reported 2 years and $25M ($1M less than his reported demands from the New York Mets) after the Jays were given a 72-hour window in which to negotiate with Dickey after agreeing to a trade that would send top prospects catcher Travis d’Arnaud, RHP Noah Syndergaard, John Buck and Mystery Prospect A for R.A. Dickey, Josh Thole, and Mystery Prospect B.

If the terms as reported are correct, then the deal represents a nice “F— You” to the Mets (and the New York media) after he was dragged through the mud following Dickey’s comments at a Mets’ team party. Good on him. He was probably asking for less than what’s fair and put his money where his mouth was when it came down to it.
