It doesn't make much sense to the Mets to trade Scott Hairston and/or Tim Byrdak to a contending team, especially since most of those clubs are offering mid-to-low level prospects in return. Or at least that's what the New York Daily News is reporting.
The Daily News' Andy Martino reports that while general manager Sandy Alderson is "fielding calls and brainstorming strategies -- and would, of course, like to obtain a legitimate prospect for either veteran --- he is more likely as of Saturday to retain the pair."
That doesn't mean there won't be any moves, since the organization has been in pursuit of a high-profile reliever for a while now. But one executive tells the Daily News to expect a quiet trading season.
