David Wright said he understands the trade of R.A. Dickey.
"Going back to when Sandy came down here and we were having those honest conversations, I was well aware that not only was Sandy looking to better this team now, but that he also wanted to build a solid foundation for the future -- and the not-too-distant future," Wright told ESPNNewYork.com on Wednesday. "That definitely came up.
"I think it was important for us to get a little bit younger. I think it actually kind of works out well for both sides. You have Toronto, obviously, with their situation, and us with our vision. I spoke to R.A. earlier this morning and he seems to be happy. The players we've gotten back, I've gotten a chance to speak to them. They're excited. And I think it fills needs for both sides."
