R.A. Dickey's future in New York is uncertain as of now, but mutliple indications lean towards R.A. being in the blue pin stripes next year.
The Mets are reportedly offering the reigning 38 year-old N.L. Cy Young a two-year, $20 million extension, which is on top of the $5 million he will make in the upcoming 2013 season. Dickey is reportedly looking to sign a two-year extension in the range of $26 million to $28 million.
Last week, the Mets aggressively excersized talks in the Nashville, Tenn winter meetings in a desperate effort to determine what they could get for Dickey in a blockbuster-of-sorts-trade.
Despite their efforts, Mets officials have still not yet found a suitor willing to offer "difference makers" in exchange for the Mets ace.
In addition to the Dickey saga, the Mets still need to do some work this off-season, and pitchers & catchers date is rapidly approaching. They are still seeking an outfielder, and a catcher to platoon with Thole. As far as pitching, the Mets could use another starter, as well as a combo-reliever to complement Frank Francisco.
Dickey is still a Met, as off now, and he is playing an elf in the team's holiday party today, and is expected to speak to the media later this morning.
