    Mets unhappy with Dickey

    Mike Pumaž@NYPost_Mets

    Mets are "not happy" according to a club source that Dickey used Mets holiday party as a forum for airing of the grievances.

    He has a right to be vocal about his situation.

    He's mad about the non committal ******** this team is putting forth.

    Just leads me to believe that much more they are going to deal him either now or by July.

    The funny thing is if the Mets offered him a Ollie Perez type deal he would probably sign up in a heartbeat.

    Do you think the Mets may have realized how bad the Ollie deal was and do not want to make the same mistake again????

    Did they expect him to completely ignore the press at this public event? Sounds like something the Wilpons would expect.

    But this guy is not Oliver Perez...

    You could put Dickey's last 3 years up against almost any pitcher in baseball.

    http://www.fangraphs.com/blogs/index...ne-great-year/

    The full list of pitchers with an ERA- between 75 and 80 over the last three years: David Price, Cole Hamels, CC Sabathia, Felix Hernandez, Gio Gonzalez, Matt Cain, and R.A. Dickey. That’s his group of peers, not based on one great year, but on three excellent seasons where Dickey has been one of the game’s best starters.

    And if he is asking 3yrs/31, i don't really get the Mets objection.

    Sportswriters don't go to these events to hype them. They go there to get access to the players they need to speak to for their stories of the day. And the event gets mentioned in the story so it's a win win for all concerned.

    The idea that Dickey isn't supposed to answer questions about the Mets dissing him in these contract negotiations is absurd.

    Shame on the Mets for not knowing better*

    *Disclaimer: There's always a chance that Puma's report is BS. My post is based on the assumption that it isn't. But it's an assumption nonetheless.
    "Mr. Martin Tanner, Baritone, of Dayton, Ohio made his Town Hall debut last night. He came well prepared, but unfortunately his presentation was not up to contemporary professional standards. His voice lacks the range of tonal color necessary to make it consistently interesting. Full time consideration of another endeavor might be in order."

    The Mets... what a joke of an organization. Seriously why are we so horribly run?

    Mets unhappy with Dickey

    How about a headline where the fans are upset with Mets ownership?

    Of course. But if true, we don't really know what "not happy means" anyway. Not happy could also equal "ambivalent." Someone connected "not happy" to the Wilpons. John Ricco could have said, "Eh. Not the best place for that." The writer runs to say the Mets are not happy, and the fans overreact. Typical. Fans look for any reason mp matter how shallow it is to crucify someone they hate.
    "The 90 wins is about challenge. It's about changing the conversation. It's about framing questions for ourselves as to how we get there. So I stand by the notion that we need to get better, and in doing so we need to set concrete goals for ourselves so that we have sort of specific conversations among ourselves about how we're going to get there." -- Mr. Alderson

    Dickey is a big boy. I'm sure he understands that Alderson is not being aggressive with contract negotiations in order to buy time to explore the trade market. IMO, it was poor judgement to choose the holiday party to open up and put pressure on the FO. He probably did it because he is frustrated that the process is taking this long.

    He knows full well that in the final analysis the club will do what is in their own best interests, and he has no control over the situation since he is already committed to a $5 million salary for this season. If he were to give Sandy an ultimatum to extend him now or cut off negotiations until he is a FA next fall, he'd be cutting off his nose to spite his face. The risk that he'd have a mediocre season and lose bargaining power would be too great. He just needs to play a waiting game and see how things play out. If Sandy cannot get the deal he wants, R.A. will get his extension. All this talk about letting him play out the season without a deal is just talk, stupid talk.

    Yeah. The report is seriously lacking in context necessarily to give it fair commentary.
