The Mets would want a “monster package” for R.A. Dickey
That’s the word from Andy Martino:
How you know you collected baseball cards back in he day: you hear the term “monster package” and this is the first thing you think of. Anyway, Martino goes on:
That’s not gonna happen. Dickey has had a great couple of seasons, but he’s 38. When was the last time a young Cy Young-caliber pitcher got that kind of haul?
Given Martino’s previous report about Dickey being amendable to a Jake Peavy-style extension, it seems extremely unlikely that the Mets would trade him. Because it’s extremely unlikely that anyone would give up that kind of talent in return.
