Scott Kazmir trade?

Hey everyone, I was just thinking about the Rays and their stacked pitching. With the seemingly inevitable trade of Peavy, could the Rays set Kazmir up as a consolation prize for a desperate second place finisher in the Peavy sweepstakes? They both have comparably attractive contracts:

Kazmir - three-year, $28.5 million extension w/2012 club option. 2008: $3.785 million, 2009: $6 million, 2010: $8 million, 2011: $12 million, 2012: $13.5 million club option w/$2.5 million buyout

Peavy - three-year, $52 million extension w/2013 club option and limited NTC. 2008: $6 million, 2009: $8 million club option w/$500,000 buyout, 2010: $15 million, 2011: $16 million, 2012: $17 million, 2013: $22 million club option w/$4 million buyout

Kazmir's is obviously cheaper, but he also carries a higher injury risk, making the contracts comparable (no numbers here, just logic/intuition). So just out of curiousity, what type of package do you think the Rays could receive for Kazmir, and from whom?
