Alderson confirms he is talking Dickey trade
Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said Monday he is not “buying billboards” to drum up interest in Cy Young winner R.A. Dickey. But he is listening to offers. Interested teams “will come to us,” Alderson said.
According to ESPN, eight teams met with the Mets on Monday, including the Red Sox. The Mets reportedly sought two of Boston’s top prospects: power-hitting shortstop Xander Bogaerts and center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr. Another ESPN report had the Rangers and Royals as the best fit for a Dickey trade.
The New York Daily News reported that the Mets did not have their mind made up yet that they would trade Dickey. The knuckleballer is under contract for the 2013 season, and wants an extension.
