"The Mets and R.A. Dickey have agreed to terms on a two-year deal, with a club option for third year, major league sources tells Daily News."
This deal is a no brainer, and the positive end of it is not just that Dickey is signed, but shows that Elvis isn't opposed to multi-year deals. This, hopefully, will turn out well for the Mets SS, Jose Reyes.
On a day when the Mets ownership finally came clean about financial issues, to the point where they are considering selling off 25% of the Mets, this signing comes as no surprise. This might deflect some of the press the Wilpon's will get for being less than honest about the state of the Mets.
