Rangers interested in RA Dickey

The Rangers are interested in trading for Mets pitcher R.A. Dickey. The Mets, who are in a rebuilding mode, are trying to work out a contract extension with Dickey. He is signed for $5 million in 2013 but is a free agent after that. If the Mets can’t work out an extension then they would consider trading him. According to sources, the Rangers are definitely interested in talking more with the Mets at the Winter Meetings.

Dickey was the Rangers No. 1 draft pick in 1996 and pitched for them from 2001-06. It was while with the Rangers that Dickey started working on the knuckleball that sent his career soaring. He was 20-6 with a 2.73 ERA for the Mets this past season, winning the N.L. Cy Young Award.

The Mets have multiple needs but outfield is high on the list.

This makes absolutely no sense. The Rangers would have no interest in R.A., no disrespect to the pitcher and his talents. But $$$$ wise this is not a fit. Who would he replace in the rotation? Not happening.

Mets: Sell high on Dickey. He wants an extra 2 years. The mets aren’t winning in that time. REBUILD (again)

Keep Dickey. If Rangers want him, give us Hamilton and nothing less

Even IF Hamilton was not a free agent and were a member of the Texas Rangers a swap of Dickey for Hamilton would not happen from the Rangers side. I’m guessing you were just kidding.
