According to Marc Carig of Newsday “the window between Thanksgiving and the winter meetings are going to be an important window in Mets’ talks with Dickey/Wright.” That window may be even tighter as rumors today have suggested the team is making a 2-year offer to Dickey. In fact, depending on what you read, the team may have made an offer as long as 2 weeks ago:
So perhaps Ken Rosenthal’s report that the team “could be on the verge of a breakthrough in their negotiations with National League Cy Young Award winner R.A. Dickey” is referring to a new offer as the sides continue to discuss what it will take to keep the 38-year-0ld in Queens through 2015. Buster Olney of ESPN tweeted today that as far as money goes, it’s likely to take more than $10 million annually to make that happen:
Andy Martino of the Daily News has echoed that sentiment:
So I guess this Saturday won’t just be about college football as the rumor mill has decided today is the day to churn out the R.A. Dickey stories.
