    He said he's a PR guy, so he knows how to spin it, not how to calculate it.

    Scarecrow: I don't know... But some people without brains do an awful lot of talking... don't they?
    Dorothy: Yes, I guess you're right.

    No, this offer won't work.

    He already has $5 million coming to him. So in essence you're asking him to sign for 3 years, $26 million.

    Cy Young Award winners don't sign 3 year contracts for 8 mill per.

    Consider your offer RE-JECTED!
    Isn't he just asking for a 2 year extension for $26 million? Which would be the same money over the 3 years, my way they pay him more up front when his value will be the highest.

    No. Because in essence, you're paying him 35 million over 3 years, or 40 over 4 if you count this year.

    Sorry but RA Dickey has to sign for a lot more than what they're paying Angel Pagan.

    LOL, well, I wasn't his agent when those numbers came up. If i was I'd tell him he was nuts to agree to that.

    If those numbers accurately represent Dickey's demands, and maybe they do, I'm sure the Mets will agree to it if they cannot get the deal they want with another team. Sandy is playing it smart for buying time.

    But all the reports in the press about disappointment because of this or that are just ridiculous.

    It is believed that it takes a brilliant man to admit his own short comings.
