Listening to Sandy Alderson last night on SNY gave me little hope the contract extensions for David Wright and R.A. Dickey will reached any time soon, but he did say there’s more a sense of urgency with the latter.
“R.A.’s situation is a little bit different in the sense that there is more immediacy there,’’ Alderson said. “Here’s a guy that’s 37 years old and is pitching and presumably doesn’t have the same horizon that a David Wright might.
“So at the end of the season we’ll talk with R.A. and see what he’s thinking and try to have him back. He’s been a great story this year. He’s been a great asset over the last three years, really.’’
Dickey has been solid since getting here, but this season has been a breakout one for him as he’s on the cusp of winning 20 games. While Wright has already had one payday, this will be Dickey’s only chance.
Dickey said he’d like to stay, but also realizes what’s at stake. Just last week he said it would take more than one piece to make

The unmistakable chants of “Cy Young” echoed throughout the cavernous Citi Field as R.A Dickey emerged from the dugout to deliver his post-game address to Kevin Burkhardt. Dickey, at 37, had just become the first Met in 22 years to win 20 games in a single season and did so in front of an overwhelmingly supportive crowd at Citi Field.

Fred Wilpon and Sandy Alderson gazing into the future and watching their plan unfold?
On Wednesday I posted this comment R.A. Dickey made regarding his thoughts on signing an extension with the Mets after this season:
“If I don’t see them pursuing David hard,” Dickey said, “I think it would be a message to everybody that they’re content to spend the next five or six years...
The Pirates lost yet again on Thursday as their hopes at salvaging a .500 season continue to go down the drain, but hey, at least the game will make SportsCenter. It was notable for two reasons: RA Dickey’s 20th win and an absolutely incredible catch by Travis Snider.
The Pirates actually got off to a good start against Dickey, scoring twice in the second inning. Garrett Jones...
