Thanks for putting the trade spec in a separate thread.  You obviously enjoy this and put time into it.  It's not a bad idea to have a spot to kick around ideas and keep the offseason thread to more press info and sourced rumors.

I'll start with the Red Sox/Yankees division:

Harper to Boston for Hanley Ramirez, Allen Craig, and Jean Machi, but only if the Nats take on some salary.  Strasburg to New York for Adam Warren.

Trade the Nationals for the Astros. And we can throw in Syracuse.

IF you want to do a deal with Boston, then Jonathan Papelbon for Albert DeSalvo, Whitey Bulger, and several defrocked priests be named later.

Add in Tamerlan Tsarnaev and you've got a deal.

Considering the appeal process, you could keep him locked up for the next 15-20 years for peanuts...just don't let him near the clubhouse buffet fondue pot.

Yes, but that'll help him fit in with DeSalvo, who had plenty of experience with dead people and is dead himself.

On a serious note, Boston might be the only team we could unload Papelbon on. They actually liked him. Give him to Boston for nothing in return if they take on his salary.

+1

All the Red Sox fans I've talked to emphatically said yes when I asked if they wanted him back.

I think they may be salary constrained so they may actually give something (not a superstar) in order to avoid taking the full salary.  Maybe I'm not reading it right.

A low-level reliever and half the salary would make me happy.
