2012 - 2013 Offseason

The Mets replaced David Wright's one year deal with an eight year, $138 million deal.

They then traded R.A. Dickey and catchers Josh Thole and Mike Nickeas to the Toronto Blue Jays for the Blue Jays' top prospect, catcher Travis d'Arnaud, their top pitching prospect, Noah Syndergaard, 18-year-old outfielder Wuilmer Becerra, and veteran catcher John Buck.
