I don’t off the top of my head. But we can extrapolate based on players that are slightly less than Harper. Like a 5 or six win player. Do you think that someone is going to give a lot more for that 3 or 4 extra wins? There is a reason there aren’t many examples. Because teams don’t do it because they will never get equal value in return.

The Nationals' trade for Soriano isn't too far off that, and suggests that the return would be utter crap.  Things have evolved a lot in the last decade, though.
