When you have a young catcher with a bat this thrilling, you cannot help but wonder about his defense. You ask yourself if he will be devoted to his most important job, collaborating with a pitching staff. You hope that there’s a little Brad Ausmus in there with his Jorge Posada.

"We know now that Alex Anthopoulos is no fan of prospect porn"

UGH. Blair doesn't get it. AA is (and mentioned that in his interview on Prime Time Sports), but unlike many fans of prospect porn he gets the goal of ANY team is to WIN not just collect prospects.

Have Some Perspective Jays Fans - Jays Journal - A Toronto Blue Jays Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

When news broke that the Toronto Blue Jays were trading for R.A. Dickey there was obviously a lot of excitement among the Blue Jays fan base. When Blue Jays fans found out Travis D’Arnaud and Noah Syndergaard could be a part of the trade the excitement turned into skepticism. After all D’Arnaud and Syndergaard were among the Blue Jays top prospects and no one knows how long the Blue Jays will have Dickey.

Trade Analysis: R.A. Dickey to the Blue Jays - Beyond the Box Score

"The Blue Jays are now the best team in the AL East, not to mention a team I would not want to face in the playoffs. R.A. Dickey probably won't win another Cy Young award, but he will thrive in Toronto. The Blue Jays never regret this deal."

I hope this is correct.
