Dont get me wrong, I am happy the Jays are pulling out all the stops to win this year but how many of us saw them as a potential playoff team after the Marlins deal?
Many say that D'Arnaud and Syndergaard havent played a MLB game yet, but neither have the 2013 Jays.
I am happy the Jays are improving their rotation. I said that had to be their priority going through this offseason and thankfully they are addressing it. Dickey is still a question mark for me because of his "lackluster" career numbers short of last year. (I dont buy this 3 yrs of performance.) I look at the important number and thats W's and Dickey doesnt excell there short of last year (only the second time in his 10 yr career that he has surpassed the 10 W mark).
You can say the Jays are getting a Cy Young winner, but until he wins one for the Jays, or performs like one, he's still a Cy Young winner for another club, which doesnt help the Jays today, or tomorrow.
I was thrilled at the Marlins deal, but this one I am skeptical of. Once the year starts up, I hope I will look back on this thread and say wow, I was wrong, good on ya RA for proving me wrong. Until then, I still see us pushing all our poker chips in a little early for my liking.
