The Yankees and Nationals talked to the Mets this week about acquiring R.A. Dickey, but talks went no place, Andy Martino of the Daily News said on Twitter.
This morning, ESPN New York’s Andrew Marchand said the Yankees are listening to offers for OF Curtis Granderson and starting pitchers Phil Hughes and Ivan Nova.
In his final talk with reporters before leaving the Winter Meetings, Alderson said he has no real sense of where things are headed with Dickey, though that could always change later in the day.
“Things are moving forward on two tracks,” he explained, saying no one should assume he’s waiting for a better trade offer.
However, he said, the Mets will never arbitrarily cut off talks with Dickey about a contract extension, even if they move in to Spring Training without having made a deal.
