I originally thought this but I don't think that's the case really. I think it's as simple as DM sick of his garbage rotation every year, and the fact that guys he counted on (Paulino, Duffy, Hochevar, Montgomery) refused to/couldn't pan out. He's exasperated, and he thinks his current team could be .500 or better with a trade. I think he likes Wil Myers quite a bit but knows it's one of his few trade pieces and he used that chip.
