Rumor Mill: Mets up offer to Dickey - Not Good Enough, Trade still being explored?

According to the New York Daily News, “team insiders continued to indicate an irreversible aversion” to matching Dickey’s desired deal, reportedly $31 million over three years, including the $5 million he’s slated to earn in 2013.

Meanwhile, the New York Post reported there’s “little chance” the knuckleballer would get a no-trade clause from Mets brass.

“Dickey wants this deal so bad, he’ll probably do it,” a source told the Post.

New York reportedly upped its offer this week to three years at $25 million, closing the gap to around $6 million from the knuckleballer’s asking price. An American League exec told the Post that it sounded like “a pretty fair offer.”

General manager Sandy Alderson told reporters there was “some progress” in the ongoing Dickey talks, and he hoped to have “more clarity in a few days” — one way or another. With the market shaking out, trading Dickey has to still be considered as a real possibility.

The Mets “consider four teams as ‘serious’ potential trade partners” for Dickey, meaning they’d include one major prospect, the Post reported. But the Mets reportedly want more than one top prospect.

So in conclusion, either one team caves in and gives the Mets what they want or they will have to give Dickey what he wants.... DD   Still say he will be traded...

Will the Mets..... free polls

Rumor Mill: Latest Dickey Rumblings

Latest Dickey Rumblings:

Dollars, not years, are the stumbling block in extension talks between Dickey and the Mets, Dickey's agent tells Adam Rubin of
Dickey's agent Bo McKinnis says little progress has been made with the Mets in extension talks, according to Brian Costa of the Wall Street Journal (via Twitter). "We're just talking in different neighborhoods in terms of dollars," McKinnis said.
McKinnis wouldn't be surprised if Dickey is traded, tweets Adam Rubin of
The Mets are telling teams that they won't go the "Carlos Beltran route" with Dickey and just trade him for one prospect, according to Joel Sherman of the New York Post. Because suitors would have Dickey for a full year rather than a half-season and would have a better chance of extending Dickey, the Mets are seeking multiple prospects (Twitterlinks).

Dickey Chatter Around the Internet:

The two sides had dialogue today and the Mets are willing to improve their offer, Jim Bowden of and MLB Network Radio reports (on Twitter). However, the sides aren't close to a deal.

Talks "could heat up really soon" a team insider told Andy Martino of the New York Daily News (Twitter link).

Adam Rubin of hears that Dickey will accept a two-year contract that would presumably begin after 2013 (Twitter links). Now, Rubin writes, it’s just a question of agreeing on an appropriate annual salary. Mets people seem confident they’ll complete a deal with Dickey, according to Rubin.
