Rumor Mill: Mets hung up with Texas on Dickey


Dickey Tidbits:

The Mets are looking for top hitting prospects Mike Olt, 25, and Leonys Martin, 24, from the Rangers for R.A. Dickey according to John Harper of the Daily News.

However, the Rangers have not countered that proposal, Ken Davidoff says in a report for the New York Post.

The Mets and Rangers (and Mets and Blue Jays) have only had general discussions about talent; with neither team putting a deal on Sandy Alderson’s desk.

The Rangers are still working to acquire OF Justin Upton from the D-Backs, though they reportedly need a fourth team involved to help deliver Indians SS Asdrubal Cabrera to Arizona in the deal.

At the same time, free-agent Anibal Sanchez is still available and an option, as is OF Josh Hamilton.

The point is, Texas has options and will likely work through them before trading their best young talent for a 38-year-old knuckleball pitcher with a one-year deal.

Meanwhile, the Jays prefer Niese, and are asking for additional pitching prospects from the Mets in a deal for their young catcher and outfielders.

Rumor Mill: Mets Working on a deal to send Dickey to Rangers?


The New York Mets have proposed a trade to the Texas Rangers that would send knuckleballer R.A. Dickey to Arlington in exchange for a "rich package" of prospects, including third baseman Mike Olt, reports Ken Davidoff of the New York Post.

Davidoff adds in a separate tweet that the lack of a counteroffer from the Rangers on the Mets’ initial proposal could indicate that Texas is not interested in working out a deal for the Cy Young winner.

Andy Martino of the NY Daily News reports, however, that the Rangers are in fact willing to move Olt in exchange for Dickey, but that the hang-up lies with the other pieces that New York wants for the knuckleballer.

The Mets can also go to the Blue Jays, Dodgers for a trade for Dickey, but I guess the plan might be  to get Olt and trade him for other needs...

The Mets in the past said they wanted the Rangers to get involved as they have a plethora of prospects they want..
