    A decision about Wright and Dickey Thanksgiving and the winter meetings

    DPLennon RT @MarcCarig: Sounds like window between Thanksgiving and the winter meetings are going to be important in Mets' talks with Dickey/Wright.

    Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said that they need to have more clarity on talks with free agents David Wright and R.A. Dickey between Thanksgiving and the winter meetings.
    The Mets have already made a formal extension offer to Wright and are awaiting a counter proposal, but aren't as far along in talks with Dickey. They'll seek resolutions to both situations before the winter meetings, in order to determine the team's direction for the remainder of the offseason. Nov 16 - 7:32 PM

    The Mets never get anything wrapped up quickly.

    It's a little hard to get contract details hammered out promptly when the units of currency the Wilpons prefer to use are half-full bags of jelly beans...

    That seems old. Earlier reports had said the Mets and Wright already exchanged offer-counteroffers. And the NYDN had said the Mets send an offer out to Dickey a couple weeks ago.

    Ahh..so many different rumors its hard to know which is right.


    Just get them signed already!

    I would like to be a temporary citizen of Missouri. So "Show Me" something Mets anything that would get the old blodd going for the next eason. If I see another .167 batting average minor leaguer signed I'm gonna have a nervous breakdown. Same goes with another rag armed pitcher signed.

    I see where Jeff is very much involved in negoitatons for Wright. What was said in an article I read was that Jeff sticks to the low end of a proposal as opposed to seeking middle ground from Wrights agents offer. With this kind of mindset, it might be ST before a deal is ironed out if any. Example would be Jeff says 6 years and Wright's people say 8 years and Jeff counters with 6 again. Most people would say OK lets meet in the middle 7 years. But since its Wilpons money, well I can see his point. It might be a long winter before a deal is struck!

    Only another 40 or so years of Jeff Wilpon running (ruining?) the Mets to look forward to.

    Well spent some time thinking of potential suitors for them if they don't resign. Tigers seem like a great option (pending extensions)

    Tigers Get:
    Wright, Dickey

    Mets Get:
    Castellanos, Dirks, Porcello
