Here's a summary of the topics covered on conference calls by Sandy Alderson and Blue Jays GM Alex Anthopoulos: Toronto approached Mets at the GM meetings in early November about Dickey, but there was no substantive trade discussion until a week before the winter meetings. At the winter meetings, Anthopolous thought the deal was dead. The teams ultimately signed an agreement on the players involved Thursday afternoon. Anthopolous and Jays manager Jay Gibbons met with Dickey in Nashville on Saturday afternoon, after MLB granted negotiating window. Anthopoulos and agent Bo McKinnis agreed to extension deal at 6 p.m. Sunday.
