The Mets made the easy decision last month to exercise a $5 million club option for 2013 on R.A. Dickey. But now they’re working on a multi-year extension with the knuckleballer. And working hard.

Dickey told Marc Carig of Newsday¬†on Wednesday night that negotiations have “progressed” and that he feels the “franchise is going in the right direction.”

Dickey, 38, posted a stellar 2.73 ERA and 1.05 WHIP in 34 appearances (33 starts) this season, fanning 230 batters and issuing only 54 walks in 233 2/3 innings. He should get a two- or three-year deal.

Dickey was named a finalist for the BBWAA’s National League Cy Young Award earlier this evening.

      None of my business, really. But can’t you do better for a reply than that?

        My bad…. But I get sick of nonstop Mets bashing.

        Understood. But some times I just don’t feed the trolls. Then they go away.
