Mets Haven’t Spoken To Rangers Since Nashville, Decision On Dickey Looming
A day after Dickey upset team brass by using a holiday party at Citi Field as a forum to voice his displeasure with recent contract negotiations, the two sides remained in limbo yesterday on the knuckleballer’s future according to Mike Puma of the Post.
Puma is also hearing that the expectation around the game is that the Mets will try to resolve the situation by the end of this week. You may recall that Sandy Alderson hinted at that on Tuesday, when he said he expected “clarity on Dickey’s status” within a few days.
An industry source says the Mets have four potential trade partners that are willing to include one top prospect in a deal for Dickey. However, the Mets aren’t budging from their position of seeking multiple highly rated prospects in any trade for Dickey.
Finally, despite the rampant speculation, multiple sources have told Puma that the Mets HAVE NOT spoken to the Rangers since the Winter Meetings which concluded over a week ago.
