Newberg Trade Ideas; Add your own if you like

We're reaching the edge of trade season. Here are some trade ideas from Newberg's 5/16 report.

(1a) Harrison and Justin Smoak for Matt Cain?
(1b) For Chris Volstad?
(1c) For Josh Johnson?

(2) Harrison, Michael Main, Max Ramirez, and Jose Vallejo for Jake Peavy

This is all in the context of drawing an analogy between Matt Harrison and what Beane did with Greg Smith, a pitchability lefty with a ceiling of #3/4 who Bean flipped with Carlos Gonzales and Houston Street for Matt Holliday.

One difference, IMO, is that Harrison isn't pitching much like a pitchability guy. He's acting more like a power pitcher.

Anyway, I don't even think about (1a). I quickly do (1b) or (1c). I'm not all that excited about (2), but mostly because I've thought Peavy was overused and likely to have an early decline. He hasn't shown any decline this year, though.

Houston Street is an interesting name I haven't thought about. He has one more year until FA after this one. What's the price? One ML-ready guy and a lower-level prospect? Maybe three prospects?
