According to multiple media reports, the Red Sox have met with the Mets regarding knuckleballer R.A. Dickey. The 38-year-old Mets pitcher went to the All-Star Game last season and won the 2012 National League Cy Young Award. But would the Boston be ready to get involved with another knuckleball pitcher, after the retirement of Tim Wakefield, and if so how much would the Red Sox be willing to give up for him? Reports indicate that New York is asking for top prospects.
