Like most businesses in the city, the Mets are impacted in the early part of this week by Hurricane Sandy, closing Citi Field offices Monday to everyone but stadium operations workers, according to a team spokesperson. So on the first morning of baseball's offseason, all members of the Mets' front office worked from home, with important business to address later in the week. The team has until three days after Sunday's conclusion of the World Series to exercise a $16 million club option on David Wright for 2013, and until five days after the series to do the same on R.A. Dickey's $5 million club option for next year. The Mets' top offseason priorities are to reach long-term resolution with both, identified by general manager Sandy Alderson as the the team's "core players." If the team agrees to contract extensions with Wright and Dickey later in November, the options that are likely to be exercised this week will be rendered moot, folded into the new deals.
