With today’s remarks I think a contract extension between R.A. Dickey and the New York Mets is less likely to happen. Dickey took to the media today to express his frustration with contract talks. In turn, a Mets’ official made it be known that the team is “not happy” with the pitcher.

“In the context of the market you want what you think is fair,” Dickey said at Citi Field, where he helped distribute gifts to school children. “Even for me, what I feel we are asking for, I feel we are asking for even less than what is fair, because that is how it has been for me and this place.

“There is a surprise sometimes when things don’t get done quickly and you think you are already extending the olive branch. But at the same time they have a budget to adhere to, and that is part of it, too.” (Mike Puma – New York Post)

By all of this I’ve got a feeling that the negotiation talks are turning ugly. Dickey brought up a great point about asking for a contract that was more then fair.

Dickey wants $13 million per season which is a good price for a reigning Cy Young Winner and all he actually asked the team for in the last round of talks was $10 million. I hate to say it but I can’t blame him for going public, the guy is being MORE then reasonable.

Talks better pick up soon or they’ll be over before you know it as Dickey said he won’t negotiate during the season. That would leave the Mets with only one option, a trade, which really does look like their best option at this point.
