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.
