What is Tejada worth on the trade market?

I am looking for your thoughts here.  Feel free to be as specific, specific teams, specific players, or generic as you like.  Here are some of mine. 

I'm an Astros fan, and want to see Tejada traded, along with Valverde, and others if possible.  I think Tejada would bring in a big bounty right now.  Here's why: 1. several teams are on him as either a SS or 3B.  Simple supply and demand.  Playoff teams need to improve on the left side of the infield.  Tejada is the best available.  The Cards and Red Sox are both known to be interested.  2. He's only going to cost another $6 million this year, and then he's going to be a free agent.  I think teams will jump all over Tejada knowing they only have to pay him for a few more months.  3. He's going to be a type A free agent and could be worth two first rounders in next years draft.  So, you may give up a couple top prospects, but you could get some of that value back once Tejada leaves. 

I especially see the Red Sox are a fit.  Michael Bowden or Justin Masterson would be a nice start and would give Houston a #2/3 starter they desperately need. 

What do you think Tejada would bring back to Houston if they traded him?
