I don't think they'd ask for Rosenthal+Taveras+ another piece.
You'd see Texas take Taveras + Rosenthal, IMO.
I think a third piece becomes involved ONLY if Joe Kelly is part of the deal. He's not a strong enough second piece by himself. The third piece would likely be a minor-league guy, and not part of the elite core that is basically ready to start for an MLB team (Miller, Wacha, Rosenthal)
