The Mets GM Sandy Alderson is in Nashville for the Winter Meetings and just finished a media briefing. Here is some of what he had to say courtesy of Adam Rubin of ESPN New York.
Regarding talking to teams about Dickey:
“I would suspect, yes, we will have conversations about R.A. That doesn’t mean we would prefer to go in that direction or reconcile to go in that direction.”
Regarding the chance of there being a resolution with Dickey before the Winter meetings conclude:
“I think it’s possible,… On the other hand, it could go on for a while. I just can’t predict. … R.A’s situation needs to be resolved, but it doesn’t necessarily have to be resolved here in Nashville before Thursday. I think we’ll have a lot more information by the end of Thursday both in terms of his negotiation as well as other options. But I don’t think we have to have resolution by Thursday.”
