Mets could have new contracts in place for Dickey and Wright before the World Series Begins


It's likely that Mets third baseman David Wright and starting pitcher R.A. Dickey could have new contracts in place by the time the World Series begins, a source told the New York Post's Mike Puma.

The Mets hold options on both players for 2013 -- $16 million for Wright and $5 million for Dickey -- that are all but certain to be exercised should new deals not be in place in time.

Wright is believed to be seeking a contract valued at at least $125 million over seven years. He hit .306/.391/.492 with 21 home runs and 15 stolen bases in 670 plate appearances this season while being selected to the All-Star team for the sixth time.

Dickey, a contender for the NL Cy Young award, was 20-6 with a 2.73 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and led the NL with 230 strikeouts and 233 2/3 innings. The knuckleball pitcher turns 38 this month.
