They don't.
Ridiculousness across all sports:

(1) "You have no valid opinion because you never played the game."
(2) "Stats are irrelevant. This guy just doesn't know how to win."

The Red Sox likely didn't value Brent Lillibridge much either but they were willing to take him to get $1 million of salary relief from Kevin Youkilis as well as open a spot for Will Middlebrooks. Teams do value dollars and open roster spaces for young guys. Fringe prospects do get moved for salary relief and potential valuable players. It happens every year. The Red Sox got a solid lefty in Matt Thornton from us for Brandon Jacobs just last season. Not every deal or trade cleans out your farm system.
The very existence of flamethrowers proves that some time, somewhere, someone said to themselves, "You know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but I'm just not close enough to get the job done." -George Carlin
