According to Marc Carig of Newsday, Sandy Alderson is not necessarily seeking a resolution to either David Wright’s or R.A. Rickey’s contract situation right now, but would like some clarity after Thanksgiving and before the Winter Meetings.
“At some point we need resolution on these discussions to be able to move on, but that time is not now,” Alderson said, according to Carig.
Alderson does not believe Dickey winning the Cy Young will impact negotiations, since he expected he would win, Carig explains.
The Winter Meetings take place from December 4-6 in Nashville, Tennessee.
Last month, the Mets exercised the 2013 options for both Wright and Dickey – Wright will earn $16 million in 2013 and Dickey will earn $5 million. Both can become free agents after next season.
