Jayson Stark of ESPN is hearing from several clubs who are telling him they don’t believe that R.A. Dickey is really on the market — yet.
The Mets have listened to offers on him since the GM meetings. But teams that kicked those tires came away with the impression the Mets still prefer to sign him, and are just lining up trade options in case those talks fall apart.
Sounds like the Mets might have just been on a fishing expedition at the GM Meetings, and this does go hand in hand with what Mets COO Jeff Wilpon said on Tuesday.
Anybody else get the feeling that Alderson may not have any real say on what ultimately happens with these Dickey and Wright negotiations?
