The Royals have "talked to the Mets about" knuckleballer R.A. Dickey, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.
But Heyman doesn't see a fit there because Dickey is 38 years old and under contract for only one more season. And the Royals aren't willing to give up young catcher Salvador Perez or top prospect Wil Myers to acquire him. The Mets have been discussing a contract extension with Dickey for at least the past two months. If they can't work anything out, it's highly possible that Dickey will be dealt.
