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.

Reyes and "The CLAW"


Some players on the Mets call it "The Claw" others call it "The Spotlight," whatever you want to call it, we've been seeing a lot of it lately. It started off last season when Reyes made the gesture at Razor Shines, who was then the first-base coach. But it has become more common this season, for two reasons. The routine involves a handful of Reyes' teammates now. And the way he is hitting, he has had more reason to do it. While the Texas Rangers made it famous last season during their World Series run, Reyes has said he picked it up from Miguel Tejada when they played together for the Dominican Republic in the 2009 World Baseball Classic. "I do it for my teammates," Reyes said. "I just want them to have a lot of energy like me." Reyes for President or starting shortstop in the All Star Game Vote Here

Texas Rangers are interested in Beltran and K-Rod???


WFAN and SI.com’s Jon Heyman reports that the Rangers are “interested” in Mets outfielder Carlos Beltran and Francisco Rodriguez.

Beltran and the Rangers are not an obvious match, since Texas is set at the outfield corners with Josh Hamilton and Nelson Cruz. Of course, there are ways to make it work, as Hamilton and Beltran are capable of playing center field. Plus, Hamilton and Cruz are not locks to avoid the DL from here on out.

Mark Cuban Won't Chase Mets


According to ESPN's Ian Begley, Mark Cuban does have interest in ownership of a MLB team but does not want to be used as bait for a higher potential offer in the bidding war of the Mets. "If they want to contact me, if they have an interest and they think I'd be a good owner, I'd take their call and I'd be more than happy to discuss it," Cuban said Wednesday night before the Knicks-Mavericks game. "But I'm done chasing and bidding on baseball teams." Cuban the owner of the NBA's Dallas Mavericks, had previously bid on ownership of the Chicago Cubs and Texas Rangers. Both of whom he lost to other ownership groups. Any sale would be limited to a 20-25% stake in the team and not SportsNet New York or Citi Field. "It's a great franchise in a great market. So I'm sure there's going to be a whole lot of interest. But I'm not going to, whether it's here or the Dodgers for that matter, I'm not going to put myself in a bidding situation. I did that twice and learned my lesson."
