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.’
Matthew Cerrone, MetsBlog.com:
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.
