That said, they likely have no intention of re-signing him.

I agree.

However given where pitcher's contracts are, a $26MM two year extension is extremely cheap when placed alongside his production over the past three years and compared to the contracts of other, less productive pitchers.

Again, I agree. I know that the Mets need an everyday outfielder who can hit and they also need a "talented" catcher but to give up the Cy Young winner to get those positions filled is just unacceptable in my opinion.

And yes, Dickey is not a youngster but he's only looking for a two year extension. Plus - he's a "draw": the games are sold out when he is pitching. Given how empty the seats are otherwise, this is just a totally "***hole" decision by Met management IMNSHO.
