Not sure what to think about the Blue Jays possibly picking up Dickie. Looks like the only thing holding up the deal is for Dickie to sign a long-term deal... and apparently he's not too psyched about going to Toronto.

can't believe they would ship the number 5 prospect in all of baseball for a 40 year old knuckleballer.

wow toronto. wow.

Dickie is pretty old, 38 years, but he's a knuckleballer so he should age well and stay healthy. Plus Toronto has had a pathetically bad team for so long now, close to two decades of apathetic play. The Jays have consistently been a .500 team for way too long and I'm actually glad that they dropped some prospects for a player of Dickie's caliber. Who's to say that d'Arnaud will turn into a stud baseball player?

Most teams are looking to build from within, they went completely the opposite direction in shipping their entire future for the team they have this year, nothing against them, but like the angels they will age very quickly very soon, but they traded away their Mike trout.

Sure he might not be that good, but a 38 year old knuckleballer? Id take the catcher/first baseman any day.

Yeah great trade for the Mets. Dickey is great but hes old and theres nothing as unpredictable as a knuckleball.

Zero people get in, get off your high horse voters. This is why the hall is a joke.

Bonds, piazza, clemmens. Some of the greatest players we will ever see, piazza for his position, bonds for overall player, and clemmens for a right hander.

And now that liriano deal is in doubt due to him injuring himself.

I'm actually with the baseball writers/voters on this one, but I've been in this debate too many times to get in to it again. The Hall of Fame is whatever people want it to be -- whether a place in the Hall really means "greatness" -- so who really cares what they/the voters think? If people view The Rocket and Bonds as worthy of the Hall, then it doesn't really matter whether they're in or not.

Personally, I hope the Hall is always barred to guys like Bonds/Clemons/A-Rod/McGwire/Sosa, etc., but I'm a bit of a purist. Whatever. I think it'd be bull**** though if Bonds got in and Pete Rose was left in the cold for the rest of time.

piazza tested positive when? bagwell tested positive when?

there has never been a 3000 hit player that didn't get in on his first ballot... until now.

the writers are acting like joe west, no one cares about the umps or the writers, it is about the players, and these players deserve to be in.

Really? Biggio's the first 3000 hit player to not get in on the first ballot?

(Piazza and Biggio will get in, so what's the big deal there?)

Rafael Palmeiro, 3000+ hits and 500+ homeruns.

It is a joke. Bonds, Biggio, Bagwell, Clemens, Palmeiro, Raines, Trammel all deserve to make it.

I'm going to Brewers On Deck tomorrow. I hope to get a few more autographs for my collection. Players like Ryan Braun have to be done by raffle, so I'm crossing my fingers. Otherwise I'll probably just get John Axford's autograph.

I got John Axford, Wily Peralta and Martin Maldonado. Didn't win the Braun raffle but my dad won the Rickie Weeks one. John Axford seems like a really nice guy.

The NL Central just evened out a bunch. Looks like Chris Carpenter won't pitch this year...or maybe ever again.
