Jeff Wilpon said he would have to consider the ideas of the new general manager. But asked if ownership could conceivably consider trading David Wright, who is widely considered the face of the franchise and the organization's ambassador as a player, Wilpon expressed pessimism such a move would materialize.

"I can't imagine it," Wilpon said about trading Wright, "but if you're going to listen to the new GM and he's going to tell you [it will] bring back five pieces or something, then I guess you have to listen. I'm not saying we're going to do it, but you'd have to listen."
