Lowrie and Bowden is what it would take but the Red Sox would never do that for a situational lefty. What you would need to have any chance to get a package for Sherrill that MacPhail would take is a contender with a need at closer. I don't think that team exists.

Sherrill and Reimold for Ellsbury is an awful trade for the Orioles and nobody in their right mind would make that deal. Sherrill for Ellsbury alone is a terrible trade. We don't need to focus on the outfield I think we're doing pretty well with Scott, Jones, and Markakis. We need to lock down that middle infield with a good young player ala Lowrie but Sherrill's value has risen to a point beyond that where we could pick and choose a second prospect. If the Sox want him bad enough, and I think Francona is enamoured by him, then Lowrie and Bowden makes more sense for the O's and more probable than the Sox giving up their starting CF which makes no sense on either side.

I can't see the Sox giving up Lowrie and Bowden for a "piece" like Sherrill, but that's just me.

What would you guys want from the Rays? Brignac and who else?

If any of you say David Price, I'm going to have to neg-rep you. You've been warned. ;)

Brignac and Hellickson. I like Brignac less because I don't think he can stick at SS, but he might be Mora's replacement at 3B.

The Dodgers fit the bill but if they can't make a deal that's fine. MacPhail will hang on to Sherrill and the Orioles will have a dominant LHP in the bullpen for the next 3 seasons.

Anyway you look at it, the Orioles win...

I would have never thought that but I really think Francona has a man crush on Sherrill and his performance in the clutch under the bright lights to where he knows he could perform in the post season. He wouldn't be trading for a set up man he would trade for a second closer. Imagine a situation where Papelbum works hard one night and can't save the next. No problem! Sherrill has MORE saves than he does. He is a set up man and top closer and it makes Boston's BP absolutely DEADLY. But, I'm willing to do it for Lowrie and Bowden.

Could you imagine Tillman, Bowden, Arrieta, and Matusz all coming up together. Thats scary.

I'd certainly try to get one of their big 3 (Price/McGee/Davis). Davis, IMO, would be the most likely to be dealt. I think we may be able to pull Davis out if we throw in something small (Berkan).

Sherrill and Berkan for Brignac and Davis

Man, that'd be an awesome trade. I doubt Boston would do it, but there's no harm in asking. :D

I kind of hope the MFY's creep up on Boston. Faced with the threat of not making the post season they would be more willing to make a deal that mortgages more of their future to make it happen this season.

He hasn't been a situational lefty for us.

They gave up Gabbard and Murphy for Gagne. Of course, EG was going to be a type B so they got a sandwich pick, but OTOH Sherrill is under control for a few years.

They've moved up to 4 games behind them...
