The salary dump alone makes trading him worthwhile. No reason whatsoever to pay $5 million for two months of outfield play on a go-nowhere team when someone else can do it for $200K. Even if you have to pay half the salary, it's worth it just to recoup the other half. Whatever salary can be dumped from a Melky trade, when combined with the cash already saved on Robertson and Frazier, will almost have Robert's bonus paid off in its entirety.
