Mets Notes: Davis, Wright, Dickey

Mets general manager Sandy Alderson offered some insight into the team’s offseason plans in an interview with Gary Cohen and Ron Darling of SNY on last night’s Mets broadcast (transcript via Andrew Keh of the New York Times). Here are the details…

  • Alderson suggested rival teams won't "put a lot of stock in" the report that the Mets are frustrated with Ike Davis’ attitude and lifestyle. The Mets dealt with the matter internally and are not looking to trade Davis, according to Alderson. “For us to trade a guy that’s hit 30 home runs, we better know where the next 30 are coming from,” he said.
  • Alderson repeated that the Mets are interested in extending David Wright and R.A. Dickey this offseason. “Our intent is to work hard to try to keep them both,” he said. The Mets are expected to exercise 2013 options for both players then discuss long-term contracts.
  • The Mets aren’t likely to spend big on outfielders this offseason, Andy Martino reported earlier today.

Am I the only one that things RA Dickey will be a 1-year wonder? I wouldn’t sign this guy long term..

Dickey has actually been quite good for 3 years now. Obviously this has been his best year, but take a look at his overall numbers the last 2 years and you’ll see a very solid pitcher. Still, if I were the Mets, I would trade him while his value is at his highest and try to bring in some good young offensive players.

So he’s a “1-year wonder” for the past 3 years? Huh?!

You’re absolutely right; one needn’t look any farther than the “quality starts” column to see that Dickey’s not only led the Mets over the last three years, but much of baseball. The problem before this year was run support (and a few of his six losses this season can also be chalked up to a poor Mets offense.)

Over three seasons Dickey’s given the Mets an excellent chance of winning in well over 90% of the times he’s taken the mound. Statistics don’t lie.

I didn’t know that he’d turned it around quite so handily. Changes my opinion of him considerably.

His average is skewed by his 1st 2 months when he was horrid after basically not playing baseball for a year. As Classic12 pointed out since June he has been much better.

if you assume Harvey will have an up and down year in his first full year – 2013, they don’t give Wheeler his first full year into 2014 that means this team is at least 2 years away from really starting the climb back to the top. Baxter, Duda , Bay and Valdespin are not everyday players that will give you enough to justify their playing time. I would trade Dickey and Wright, since by 2015 I doubt they will be a big part of the plan or at their prime. This teams needs more young players it can mold into a good 2015 team , then sign some Free agents in 2015 to join the young players

So your telling me that the Mets will suck again next year?
This is a pretty shocking development

Why extend these guys? The Mets are a long way from being competitive. They aren’t going to win. Move them and get what they can for them. Then, in a few years, when they can get out from under the stupid contracts, they’ll have something to build around. Trade them. I’d rather see the suck to death for a couple years and build to win, than finish 74-88 every year.
