Add another team to the list. Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports that the Dodgers have talked to the Mets about a possible trade for R.A. Dickey.

Zack Greinke remains the Dodgers’ top priority, but there’s a chance they could try to add both pitchers. Of course, the thought is that the Mets could get more in return for Dickey after Greinke signs. The two clubs ultimately aren’t a great match, as the Mets are looking for young, cost-controllable players for their outfield and behind the plate. That’s not exactly the Dodgers’ area of strength from a prospect perspective.

It’s worth noting that Dickey is only making $5 million next season, so that’s reasonable enough for most contending teams to at least inquire about the potential asking price. In other words, look for lots of these types of reports regarding Dickey this week.

      Right. Because the Dodgers control DJ’s mind.

        If they get him, Dickey will be just one more over-priced loser the Dodgers are hell-bent on signing. He will feel at home with the rest of them as they watch next year’s World Series from their couches at home.

    Another disaster waiting to happen…One great season and a team will over pay…too bad might be my Dodgers.

      One great season? He’s been overall solid the past 3 seasons,go look up his stats.

      The guy’s ERA has been fantastic the past 3 seasons. He cannot help it if the team behind him was not very good. He’s not a one year wonder. It coincides with him becoming a full time knuckleballer.

    Our jackass owner might make this move since he worships the dodgers and built a shrine to them we call citi field.

    So, it’s Dee Gordon, right? And who else is left, fer chr’sakes?

    The Dodgers are interested in everyone. They have considered buying the Mets outright and making them their east coast minor league affliates.
    I say strike now while the Yankees are in save mode or before the ghost of Steinbrenner visits his scrooge sons Hank and Hal this xmas.

    We don’t really have the trade pieces to land him, but maybe of we eat Santana’s contract we can pull it off.
