Blue Jays try to close deal for Mets ace Dickey

Dickey drew attention earlier this month when he showed up at the baseball winter meetings in Nashville — he lives in Tennessee, near the hotel where the gathering was held.

Last week, Dickey ruffled Mets management when he spoke about his contract situation during a team event at Citi Field for children displaced from their schools by Superstorm Sandy.

Dickey said it "would be disappointing" if he merely played out his option year and became a free agent.

"If that's the decision that they make, I feel like it would be unfortunate because it probably is going mean that I'm not going to be back," Dickey said at the event. "And that would be sad."
