It's "conceivable" 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.
