What's the trade market like for Ryan Ludwick?

Something to get the trade juices pumping again; feel free to yell at me if this should be in the hot stove thread...

 

Aside from Colby Rasmus, I'd say Ludwick is out hottest trade chip right now, but the teams that were purportedly looking for a corner outfielder with a bat (or should be looking for one if the aren't) either A) already got one this offseason (Tampa got Matt Joyce, Philadelphia got Raul Ibanez) B) aren't offering what we want (Matt Cain is off limits, Jonathan Sanchez seems hard to pry loose, and Kelly Johnson is extraneous if we're keeping Kennedy) C) don't have what we want (Texas has no starting pitching) or D) are in our division (Pirates bounty). 

However, it does seem like our old friends in Cleveland might be able to help out. They very well might have the worst corner outfield in their division, and they have Jeremy Sowers, a young, cheap good pitcher and Rafael Perez, a fairly nasty, also young, also cheap lefty reliever. Ludwick for Sowers/Perez/prospect certainly seems like a good fit for both parties to me, in addition to being probably the only fit that doesn't fall into those 4 categories I mentioned before. Just curious to hear what you all think. I'm getting hot-stove withdrawal.
