On one hand they want elite prospects for Dickey. On another hand they are claiming his contract demands are too high. So which one is it. If he is good enough for the prospects he is good enough to get paid. Going into the season without an extension can not be an option

What they tell the media and Dickey's agent isn't necessarily the same thing they tell other GMs.

"Going into the season without an extension can not be an option", agreed!

If the Wilpons cannot afford Dickey's asking price, just as they couldn't with Reyes, he needs to be traded. I just find it comical how this team couldn't afford to pay a batting champion, and CY Young Award winner in consecutive offseasons.

Well, we know Reyes, and we know the big contract was a high risk due to Reyes's injury history. There's no doubt in my mind that Reyes is slowing down. We fans should be thankful for having Reyes, and all the good years he gave us.

Age is an issue concerning Reyes, but, age is not an issue concerning Dickey, and especially that Dickey is not demanding a huge long term contract.

I agree, The Mets must come to terms on an agreement.
