They are negotiating with Wright and Dickey a year before they become free agents precisely because they don't want to repeat what happened with Reyes. It has nothing to do with a down year or a good year.

Despite what Jeff states are theiir #1, 2 & 3 scenarios, if they can't reach extension agreements with either of them, they are gone. Either they'll trade them at or after the winter meetings, or of they can't get their price, they'll go into the season with them and trade them in July. Believe me, they won't just let them walk at the end of next season without getting something in return.
