Selling to restock, but buying again?

 With the Cubs wanting to restock their farm system would it make sense to start dealing guys who have deals or are going to make a lot through abirtration? What would be done is trading the likes of Geovany Soto, Carlos Marmol and Marlon Byrd. Some want to trade Garza, but the only way Theo moves him is for a monster package from the Yankees or Rangers.

Soto- He's under team control for 2 more years and is considered to be a top offensive catcher while healthy. Because of his age and his cost a team would probably pay a pretty penny for him. Teams like the Angels, Red Sox, and Mets make sense for me.

Marmol- His value is low right now, but people in baseball acknowledge that ability to miss bats on a constant basis, and he is still seen as a closer so a team like the Mets, Blue Jays, Marlins, Padres, Diamondbacks, Orioles, and Red Sox could all be possible landing spots for him.

Byrd- Not the greatest player, but they could get a nice prospect or two from a team like the Nationals who need a center-fielder.

Now since you have probably traded off about (rough estimate) 20 million, that was going towards your next payroll, you can buy again going after the likes of Jackson, Buehrle, Fielder and ect. Trade proposals I leave to you.
