I guess they're swapping Thole and Buck. I'd rather keep Buck and get a reliever instead. I'm not immensely sold on this deal anyway though. At least Gose isn't involved anymore though.
Thole is pretty much only comin to catch Dickey's knuckler. Think Mirrabelli in Boston w Wakefield all those years. Giving up a lot though, i really don't think Dickey is worth D'arnaud AND syndeguard. Maybe one or the other, but not both. I really wish Ike Davis was coming back, I think he'd look really good with this team.

Couldn't have said it better myself Joey. Great to see you back.
The Mets won the deal but AA is actually really serious about a deep post-season run within the next 2 or 3 seasons. I think it was a win/win. Either we kept D'arnaud and Syndergaard or we have an elite rotation, while still possessing a good but not great catcher in Arencibia.
