Mets' R.A. Dickey-to-Blue Jays rumours pick up steam
By MELISSA COUTO, QMI Agency
TORONTO - Rumours that the Blue Jays could be close to landing knuckleballer R.A. Dickey from the New York Mets began to gather serious momentum on Friday night.
Though the Jays have been showing interest in Dickey for a while — GM Alex Anthopoulos reportedly inquired into his availability during the winter meetings — numerous online reports suggested that a multi-player deal to send the 2012 National League Cy Young Award winner north of the border could be ironed out as early as Saturday.
Heading to New York from Toronto’s roster could be 26-year-old catcher J.P. Arencibia, and 22-year-old centre fielder Anthony Gose.
