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.
