I think they were maintaining that teams weren't offering enough to warrant dealing Byrd and not field the best possible team. My guess is the Pirates upped the ante by including something the Mets wanted. The Pirates were sorely lacking in RF production — so I don't think the timing of this move has anything to do with what transpired yesterday. The only Harvey-related aspect is feeling freed up to move Buck.
