Papelbon trade seems eminent, but...

Small problem.  Who do we try to get?  The obvious first option is other relief pitching, but I don't think a team will give up young or talented relief pitching for Papelbon's salary and attitude.  The second option is prospects, but I don't see that happening either.  For now, we should try to keep Papelbon until his situation becomes a problem.  The Sox are pretty complete, aside from a few more bullpen slots.  Additionally, after a bad year, Pap's trade value probably isn't very high.  Will a team really come to the Sox with a good offer for Pap? Maybe, but I don't think so.  Hang on to him as long as we can, even if that means most/all of 2011.  A trade would be pointless.
