The shock has worn off. Now it's time for the anticipation to take over. The three principal players the Mets acquired from the Blue Jays in the R.A. Dickey trade took part in a conference call on Tuesday, and they spent the time addressing their excitement about joining a new team. Travis d'Arnaud, the centerpiece of the deal, joined big league catcher John Buck and pitching prospect Noah Syndergaard on the call to detail the early returns. d'Arnaud, a catcher who grew up watching Mike Piazza and Russell Martin, said he can't wait to join his new organization.
