Why would the Jays trade a player like Wells to the Sox?

Also, if Coco Crisp is going to be involved...I'm sure the Jays will need more than just a prospect. I'd expect JP to ask for Papelbon, Lester and a B Level Prospect. Coco Crisp isn't as good as he's been advertised.
If Wells does get moved, I'd expect it to be to the NL.
But again...these are all Rumors.
I don't see why JP wouldn't break the piggy bank to keep Wells for a long time.

"After my fourth season I asked for $43,000 and General Manager Ed Barrow told me, 'Young man, do you realize Lou Gehrig, a 16-year-man, is playing for only $44,000?' I said, Mr. Barrow, there is only one answer to that - Mr. Gehrig is terribly underpaid."- Yankees outfielder Joe DiMaggio
