Barring extensions sooner, R.A. Dickey and David Wright are due to have their 2013 options locked in this week.
The completion of the World Series on Sunday night does have a modest impact on the Mets.
In Wright's case, his $16 million team option for next season actually needs to be exercised within three days after the World Series, per his contract. Dickey's $5 million option must be picked up on or before five days after the World Series, which is the industry standard.
The Mets would like to sign both players to longer-term extensions. But given a recent report indicating no figures had been exchanged, it would appear logical for both options to be picked up in the interim while talks get more involved.
