Mets Raise Majority Of Ticket Prices For '13; Dickey Reportedly Traded To Blue Jays
Published December 17, 2012
KNUCKLING UNDER: A source said that the Mets yesterday agreed to trade P R.A. Dickey to the Blue Jays "for top catching prospect Travis d’Arnaud, top pitching prospect Noah Syndergaard and others." In N.Y., Andy Martino reports the deal is "pending an agreement between Dickey and the Blue Jays on a contract extension." A separate source said that the parties "had already begun preliminary talks on Sunday afternoon, in advance of a Tuesday deadline." The source said that they "did not know when an agreement would be reached" (N.Y. DAILY NEWS, 12/17). The WALL STREET JOURNAL's Daniel Barbarisi writes the reported trade "signals a commitment to a brighter future -- and virtually assures a dismal present" for the Mets (WALL STREET JOURNAL, 12/17). In N.Y., Tyler Kepner writes the Mets by trading Dickey "essentially told their fans that they do not expect to contend for the next three years" (N.Y. TIMES, 12/17).
