R.A. Dickey, please do not get to upset with the schmucks that manage the NY Mets.
Alderson is a puppet for Selig, Selig is the worst League president that has ever disgraced the office. As for the Wilpons, there are no words except ingrates.
Dickey, do the math and realize that this organization thrives on eating itself alive to the detriment of the team and fans.
As one of your fans, I only want the best for you and your family. Selfish, yes I am, I wish that the morons that be would recognize your talents and contributions, but all I can do is blog and e-mail the organization.

Dickey had a breakthrough season in his late 30's and then expects to be paid like an elite player after only one outstanding season that may or may not have been a fluke. Yes, he deserves a substantial raise, but not a raise that would put him among the top 20% of all pitchers in the Majors. Perhaps a bonus laden contract predicated on a certain number of starts and a certain ERA target would be more sensible for all. That way, if he keeps up his performance level of 2012, he will be well compensated and if not, the Mets are not saddled with overpriced baggage.
