For now David Wright and R.A. Dickey remain in the Orange and Blue, as the franchise according to sources have extended the options for both All-Stars for 2013. Reports are that the Mets are quietly working on a deal to make the two ‘cornerstones’ of the team remain in Queens for the future.
For Wright the third-baseman is now slated to earn $16 million next season, while Dickey will earn $5 million. From what has been heard from General Manager Sandy Alderson’s office, the executive hopes to have long-term extensions for both players-and hopes to get that done during the course of the offseason.
The Mets rumor mill has been turning like crazy as of late, though according to reports there may not be the splash that fans may want.
Names like Marco Scutaro have been spotted, though many feel that is a move that will not actually happen.
Either way Mets fans should stay tuned to see what Alderson does have planned for the franchise, as the GM has to walk a very delicate line of balancing a tighter budget, while finding the pieces that will help bring a World Series trophy back to Queens.
