The issue with giving a contract to R.A. Dickey has always been about the length of the commitment. He’s 38 and even if he is a knuckleballer, you just don’t want to go long on a 38 year-old athlete.
In light of this, however, it sounds like Dickey and the Mets may soon be able to get something done:
As for Dickey, I’m hearing he’ll accept 2-year deal. So it’s just meeting of minds on the money. Mets people seem confident it’ll get done.

I don’t know how the Mets don’t do that.
