The Mets continue to feel underwhelmed by trade offers for R.A. Dickey, tweets Andy Martino of the Daily News.
Jim Duquette made a similar comment on SiriusXM’s MLB Network Radio today.
Martino says the Mets remain undecided about whether to sign or trade him, according to ‘people involved.’

It’s going to keep coming down to this. The Mets want and need a bat, preferably someone young, with power and under contract. So, if Dickey can deliver this in trade, the Mets will do it, from what I understand. If he can’t, they’ll probably end up signing him to a two-year extension, while exploring trades for Jon Niese. If Niese can’t deliver that bat, they’ll look to the free agent market, which could drag out through the off season.
