Could we actually trade away starting pitching?

I think that in any other year this would have been laughable.  However, all of our pitchers are relatively young and pitching well under Kerrigan.  Our Starters have actually been our strength this year.  While everyone knows that you need to stockpile good starting pitching to compete, management is focused on winning in the future and not now.  I know the trade names that always get thrown around are Adam Laroche, Freddy, Jack, even Nate (please no).   Capps and Grabow are often mentioned from that group of guys who hang out in the outfield and fill the pitcher position late in games (I will not call that a bullpen just because they are often in said physical structure.)  Does anyone see a situation where a team in need of starting pitching comes in with a package of prospects for Maholm, Snell, Duke or O-dorf?  I'm not advocating this, just wanted to see what others think (not at as much if we should, more if we would/ could).  Possibly our old trading buddies the Dodgers or Yankees? Brewers?  Texas?    Both have stacked systems and need starters.   Seattle?  They'd be a good fit for some of our guys with their solid d and huge park.   Just a few teams that crossed my mind.  I'm not suggesting there aren't better/ more likely teams.  If there are I'd be interested to hear.
