Ranaudo And Cecchini Theo's Price for Garza?

Ranaudo (L) & Cecchini (R)
Reports are surfacing that Theo Epstein will demand both Anthony Ranaudo and Garin Cecchini in a trade for Matt Garza. Cecchini is tearing it up in AAA, while Ranaudo (despite the shelling he took at the Futures Game on Sunday) is having a good year at AA Portland. The question for Ben Cherington is whether two months of Garza is worth your #3 (Cecchini) and #6 (Ranaudo) prospects? Clearly, the Clay Buchholz injury situation demands some kind of move for a more reliable starter—but this may be too high a price to pay.
