Cerrone: Dickey Looking For A Five-Year Deal
Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that the Mets have very little interest in signing R.A. Dickey to a contract extension and instead confirms what Joel Sherman had reported earlier which is that the Mets are actively discussing trading him with several other teams at the GM Meetings.
Also, Matt Cerrone of MetsBlog is reporting that his insiders at the GM Meetings tell him “Dickey will want four years, and probably $60 million after 2013, but the Mets are thinking more like two years and $30 million.” Cerrone also says his insiders say that Dickey’s agents are looking for a five-year deal.
Yesterday, Dickey sounded happy with contract talks, but now it sounds like there’s a chasm between what the Mets think his value is compared to what the Dickey camp believes.
That MetsBlog report of a five-year deal sounds very far-fetched to me and unrealistic. If there’s any truth to that, the Mets will have no choice but to trade him.
