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: #bbpBox_269843548696870912 a { text-decoration:none; color:#0084B4; }#bbpBox_269843548696870912 a:hover { text-decoration:underline; } Mets sources: team made 2 year offer to Dickey approx 2 weeks ago, sides have been negotiating $. As we’ve reported, Mets know he’ll take 2 about 2 hours ago via UberSocial for iPhoneReplyRetweetFavorite @SurfingTheMets Andy Martino 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: #bbpBox_269854848680349697 a { text-decoration:none; color:#009999; }#bbpBox_269854848680349697 a:hover { text-decoration:underline; } Sources: R.A. Dickey wants more than $10 million a year, if he were to agree to a two-year extension for 2014-2015. about 1 hour ago via webReplyRetweetFavorite @Buster_ESPN Buster Olney Andy Martino of the Daily News has echoed that sentiment: #bbpBox_269856280036917248 a { text-decoration:none; color:#0084B4; }#bbpBox_269856280036917248 a:hover { text-decoration:underline; } 1 more thing about Dickey. It has become clear in negotiations that he will sign for a deal comparable to, & likely less than, Peavy’s 2/29 about 1 hour ago via UberSocial for iPhoneReplyRetweetFavorite @SurfingTheMets Andy Martino 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.
