To be honest with you, I highly doubt the Mets will do any trades with the Yankees, who is their biggest rival in both performance and attendance, and especially one that involves a very popular player.
The Sox does not have that great of a farm system now, and certainly don't have the pieces for Dickey.

From what I heard, there were only 5 or 6 teams who are interested, and other than the Blue Jays, only the Rangers are willing to give more than 1 good prospect for Dickey.
What the Rangers offered, however, were just not quite what the Mets were looking for.

My information might not be correct, but it seems like teams are weary of Dickey.
I think the Mets made out extremely well, and only time will tell if the trade is worthwhile.
