Dickey Bids Fans Farewell: “Thanks For Making Me Feel Wanted”
Updated by Joe D. at 6:05 PM
R.A. Dickey tweeted a fond farewell to Mets fans this afternoon, writing:
“Now that it’s official, I want to say that I don’t have the words to express how grateful I am to you for the steadfast support and encouragement I received from all of you. I’ve always felt that there was a connection beyond the uniform. Thank you for making me feel wanted.”

R.A. Dickey has passed his physical as reported by Andy Martino Of the Daily News. While the players have yet to be informed of an official trade, this can all be a formality to either announce it today at a makeshift press conference, or to hold it off until tomorrow and introduce all of the new players to their respective franchises.
Dickey, Josh Thole and Mike Nickeas have been traded to the Blue Jays for top C prospect Travis D’Arnaud, veteran C John Buck, Toronto’s top pitching prospect Noah Syndergaard and 18-year-old OF Wuilmer Becerra.
The teams are likely to make an official announcement soon…
While it seems like this has been going on forever, this has been a four day process and that has finally ended the never ending rumor mill.
