The Mets initiated a smear job campaign against Dickey earlier this week; his departure was sealed.
Is there a team in baseball that you don't
accuse of smear campaigns?
Dickey reportedly bitched about the Wilpons dragging their feet on his extension at a Christmas party; within hours his name was in trade talks and there were "sources" within the Mets organization saying that there were concerns about his arm and his knee. It wasn't a Larry Lucchino hatchet job, but there was definitely an element of a smear campaign going on.
