MLB Trade Rumors: What Price Brad Penny?

Peter Gammons reports the Boston Red Sox are looking for "a Justin Smoak, Matt LaPorta or Brett Wallace." Wow. Stupid is as stupid does aside, are there any contending teams who have a need for starting pitching and who is there elite prospect? This would be a match for the most retarded price tag I've seen in a while.

The Detroit Tigers, Los Angeles Angels, and Chicago Cubs don't have elite Top 20 level prospects.

Additionally, Gammons relays rumors of past deals that fell through - Takashi Saito the the Texas Rangers for Hank Blalock and discussions with the Los Angeles Angels for infielder Macier Izturis.
