The New York Mets have no plans to blow things up this winter, but instead hope to extend veterans R.A. Dickey and David Wright.

New York Mets general manager Sandy Alderson told Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com that he’s not prepared to blow up his current roster and start over.

"I'm not prepared to blow up the team and start over again," Alderson said. "I don't think we need to do that."

While the Mets aren’t expected to be active on the free agent market this winter, they’re also resolved to make every attempt to re-sign third baseman David Wright and National League Cy Young candidate R.A. Dickey.

Alderson believes the team is in a position to sign Wright and Dickey to contract extension. Both players have expressed interest in remaining with the club, while Dickey has specifically said that he would be more inclined to stay if the Mets attempt to stay competitive in the short-term while they grow for the future.

Overall, Alderson listed the organization’s goals as: 1. Build through the farm system. 2. Retain core players. 3. Add free agents/trade acquisitions on a "fairly judicious basis."
