Bo McKinnis, who represents R.A. Dickey, tells ESPN New York that the stumbling block in the negotiations is the dollars and not the years. McKinnis says:
“As we’ve spoken of number of years, I think we’re both in a general area,” McKinnis said. “We’ve talked about various proposals and different structures and there’s multiple that I think we both could be happy with. That’s definitely not the issue. It would definitely go back to the actual dollars.”McKinnis said talks with the Mets have been cordial.
