MLB Trade Rumors: Assembling Perfect Packages for Each Top Available Target
Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports
Is there a team that can put together a good enough trade package to entice the Marlins?

Trade rumors are fun, especially when they involve big-name players. But, realistically, most of those rumors involving the best players in the game aren't happening. 

It's not that the big names aren't available. Unless there is a full no-trade clause in place, any player can be had for the right price. Even Mike Trout. Even Clayton Kershaw. Yeah, seriously. 

But the right price would be a package of talent that teams either don't have or one that would completely deplete the team's farm system and/or create bigger holes on the major league roster. It's almost like buying an amazing house, but the high price that you paid isn't going to allow you to have furniture or eat or pay for cable. 

I've put together what I think are perfect trade packages for five big-name players that will be targeted by teams this winter. By "perfect," I mean that it's a trade that would help both teams involved.

Keep in mind that these are really good players, and it should take a lot to pry these players away from their respective teams. Quality over quantity is a key.
