07:23 AM ET 07.04 | Tick, tock. With four weeks to the trade deadline, more and more names will start popping up as trade targets as the July 31 deadline approaches. One Mets player who could draw interest is outfielder Marlon Byrd, who is hitting .262 with 12 homers and 40 RBIs and has hit well the past two months. Byrd, who has been traded twice before, knows the Mets could potentially move him. Byrd believes that a trade would indicate he's accomplished what he's set out do in Flushing this season. "I have one goal every single year, especially a new team I'm with -- When I come to an organization, to make sure when I leave that they're better off," Byrd said. "If they end up trading me and getting some pieces that could contribute later, I've done my job."
