08:13 AM ET 10.08 | The clock is ticking in Queens. Sandy Alderson's definition of "quickly," when it comes to David Wright's and R.A Dickey's future with the Mets, could mean before the first pitch of the World Series is even thrown. The Mets general manager made it clear earlier this week a resolution on both players' futures could come quickly. A baseball source with knowledge of the team's thinking was more specific [late last week], saying it's conceivable Wright and Dickey will have new deals in place, at least in principle, by the time the World Series begins later this month. Wright and Dickey are under club control for 2013, but have indicated they will test free agency next offseason if they do not receive new contracts by spring training.

Is it move quickly on, or move on quickly?

They have no choice in signing Wright the clubs franchise player if they want to keep their fans happy, but for Dickey a career 500 pitcher you are taking a big gamble on him giving a long tern deal hoping he can have the same success he had this year.

Once again...Dickey will probably sign because he's grateful.....but Wright is another story...who's to say Wright even wants to stay.....If were him I'd be looking to play for a contender...

Dickey's been pretty good the last 3 years. But still - he's 37. And he had a career season. You can't get crazy with hiom.

It's good that the interns have gotten Eco-friendly. They've recycled this story three days in a row.

I say he has two good years left in him. You'd expect a knuckler to have more tread on the tires, but he throws a hard knuckler, unlike Wakefield..
