Byrd/Buck trades are an example of how you build a good team. They are not in Mets longterm plans so might as well get whatever you can for them. You may not get a major league player but you do add depth to your minors. Look at Astros. Sure the major league product is horrible but over past couple years they've built one of the best farm systems in baseball. Smart trades. They trade Pence for 3 promising prospects (one of them is their 1B of the future and the other guy has #2 upside). Traded Bourn. Traded Carlos Lee for Matt Dominguez. They also drafted well.
