Is the price for Gio too high?

Danny Knobler writes that the price for Gio Gonzalez is very high.  Knobler writes "How high? Well, when the Marlins asked about Gonzalez at last week's winter meetings, sources said that the A's asked for budding star Mike Stanton in return. Understandably, that conversation was brief". The A's are also interested in Justin Turner, and a source tells Knobler that the Tigers would move Turner for Gonzalez, but the Athletics also asked to prospects Nick Castellanos and Drew Smyly.

Knobler also writes that the Athletics won't trade Gonzalez and Bailey to the same team because "they don't believe that any interested team has enough available players to get both of them".

Knobler tweets "If Tigers don't get Gio, they'll likely try to find a veteran Penny-type for 5th spot in rotation." @DKnobler

If the Tigers or Red Sox acquired Gonzalez, he would be part of one of the best rotations in the game. These teams could also be part of the Yu Darvish posting, which ends today.
