Mets could get more for Niese than Dickey

Jon Niese Jersey Circle“The Mets have also discussed Jon Niese enough to lead one source to conclude that early interest was not overwhelming,” Andy Martino reports for the Daily News.

According to Martino, the Mets are not inclined to trade Niese right now, “despite a widespread view among rival executives that the lefty would yield a far better return than Dickey.”

Dec. 4, 4:24 pm: “We’ve really had virtually no discussions with anyone about Jonathan,” Sandy Alderson told reporters today in Nashville. “So we’d be starting from scratching on that.”

Yesterday, Alderson said the Mets had talked to teams about Niese, but he was talked about less than R.A. Dickey.
