I know the game isn't played on paper (see: last year's Angels), but if the Jays get Dickey, it's all over in that division.
I haven't heard the O's linked to Dickey, but the Mets want catching or OFs. The O's could offer them young pitching to replace Dickey (though clearly not as good), and they have some OF depth. I don't see a match either, but we'll see. Duquette needs to do something. It almost seems like he's banking on the O's being better than the Red Sox, Rays and even Yankees by default.
