For those of you that think he's a one year wonder, I can tell you that's not the case.
Check out Dickey's stats the in last three years of his career.
2010: 27 GS, 11 W, 174.1 IP, 2.84 ERA, 104 K, 1.19 WHIP
2011: 32 GS, 8 W, 208.2 IP, 3.28 ERA, 134 K, 1.23 WHIP
2012: 33 GS, 20 W, 233.2 IP, 2.73 ERA, 192 K, 1.05 WHIP

Fastball- 14.0% (83.4 MPH average velocity),
Knuckleball- 85.4% (77.1 MPH average velocity)
Changeup- 0.6% (75.3 MPH average velocity)
Considering the Jays are loaded in the outfield and still have D.J. Davis in the system, Gose is expendable IMO. One of the catchers can go too and I'm sure they'll get another player in the deal.
Alex Anthopoulos will get a good deal done here, I'm a fan of this if it happens.
Those are fantastic numbers. Prior to his Cy Young winning season he wins 8 games in 32 starts. The year before that was his highest win total in his career at 11.
Instead of selling off 2 of your best (and most valuable) prospects, I would rather see AA go sign a free agent starter like Edwin Jackson to fill that #5 spot. I'm sorry but I see Dickey as a one year wonder as far as his Cy Young ability.
Is he a good #5 pitcher, sure on this roster but not for that price. I would take a pass on this deal. You need an arm in that slot, not a name that you can say won a Cy Young award in previous years with another team.
