Jeff Wilpon told reporters today that R.A. Dickey and the Mets are still far apart on the overall value of a possible contract extension, and it’s possible they could go into next season with no new agreement.
Dickey later told ESPN.com that he is hopeful a new deal can be worked out, but he understands that Sandy Alderson is paid to make the Mets better.
Alderson later told MLB Network that he has to look at all possibilities and that he is more likely to keep Dickey without an extension at this point, though that is not his preference.
There is absolutely no mandate that an extension must be done now. Two years ago with Jose Reyes, the Mets let him play out his option and took the picks.
Jeff Wilpon has already said that could happen again with Dickey, and I’m starting to believe that is exactly what will happen.
