With the 2012 Winter Meeting set to begin today, New York Mets general manager Sandy Alderson arrived in Nashville last night and spoke with the NY media.  According to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, most of the conversation surrounded Cy-Young winner, R.A. Dickey: AP Photo “Well, we expect to talk to a lot of teams about a lot of different things. That’s why we’re here — to explore various combinations. I would suspect, yes, we will have conversations about R.A. That doesn’t mean we would prefer to go in that direction or reconcile to go in that direction. …I don’t negotiate directly with R.A. That would not be professional under the circumstances. He’s represented. So there never was any intention of having that conversation here today. On the other hand, we continue to have conversations with his agent. I would expect that we’ll see him some time during these three or four days. When, exactly, I’m not sure.“ #bbpBox_275400455012638721 a { text-decoration:none; color:#0084B4; }#bbpBox_275400455012638721 a:hover { text-decoration:underline; } Contrasting Jeff Wilpon’s recent comments, Alderson suggested likely will be resolution one way or other with Dickey–not play out option. about 4 hours ago via EchofonReplyRetweetFavorite @AdamRubinESPN Adam Rubin #bbpBox_275404097870524416 a { text-decoration:none; color:#0084B4; }#bbpBox_275404097870524416 a:hover { text-decoration:underline; } Alderson on Dickey: “I haven’t resorted to the chocolate box yet.” about 4 hours ago via TweetDeckReplyRetweetFavorite @AdamRubinESPN Adam Rubin According to Rubin, Adlerson added that it would difficult to address all of the Mets’ needs via free agency given the payroll constraints, saying: “We’ll know more in two or three days. I mean, I think there are free agents out there who can help us, who are in our price range. Whether we’re able to fill all of our needs through free agency, I think, is a separate question. I’d say probably unlikely, depending on what our standards are for the outfield, catching, relief pitching, etc., etc.”
