According to the Boston Globe for the Boston Red Sox to acquire Johan Santana they would need to give away Jon Lester or Clay Buchholz. But the Red Sox would not be willing to give away both. Also if they were to do the trade the Red Sox would want to be able to resign Santana for a long-term deal. Same idea with Dan Haren, Billy Beane would be looking for one of the two starters with probably two more prospects.
For one of these deals to go through Coco Crisp would probably be included in some way, maybe in a three way deal, to get maximum value out of moving him.
A rotation that looks like: Josh Beckett, Johan Santana/Dan Haren, Dice-K, Schilling, Wakefield would be the best in baseball by far.
