How not to handle a star

John Perricone at Only Baseball Matters has his usual fine post in which he expresses amazement as to how poorly the Mets' have front office has bungled contract extension negotiations with Cy Young winner RA Dickey, essentially bashing Dickey and telling him that he got lucky this year. I concur with John's assessment. 

I've had my share of disagreements over the years with front office moves from the Giants but I do give them a lot of credit for not giving into the temptation to go around bashing players. What in the world does it get you to do that? Aren't free agents going to think twice about signing with you? How are your fans going to react?    

Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports just tweeted that the Mets have a deal for Dickey --
Sources: , have agreement in principle on Dickey trade. Window open for Jays to extend Dickey, which would complete deal.
