Signs Indicating R.A. Dickey Will Be Dealt
According to Ken Rosenthal, signs are pointing towards R.A. Dickey being traded, he reports via twitter. The Mets and Dickey’s inability to come to an agreement on a contract extension and that 1-year, $5 million deal for 2013 is beginning to look a lot more attractive to teams who missed out on the likes of Zack Greinke, James Shields and now Anibal Sanchez.
The Mets are currently at a standstill with R.A. Dickey on contract talks. Dickey is looking for two-years and $26 million while the Mets camp seems to be fixed on two years at $10 million per year.
Buster Olney of ESPN reported earlier today that a general manager told him that if the Mets could extend Dickey’s contract, his trade value would increase.
We’ll keep you posted as more news comes in on this new development….
