Getting better prospects in trades

So I know a lot of us die hard Astros fans read every bit we can on the team. We probably go to mlbtraderumors at least a couple times a day. It seems like the rumors for the Astros players.... ie... Wandy, Myers, and Lyon are non existant with all the other pitching out there. It has really made me think that in order to sell on our guys and bring a good haul back we need a couple of things to happen. 1. We need teams to be desperate. 2. We need teams to realize that our players are not rentals. Because there is no draft compensation for rentals, it is driving the price down. 3. Go after teams that have multiple needs. Pair Myers and CJ for.... or Wandy and Lyon for... 4. Swallow all the money. I'd prefer that we get less prospects for quality prospects. For example. Why did we trade Lee for 2 players? I would of prefered one really great prospect. I think we have enough filler in the minor leagues. We need more upside. BTW... One positive with losing all the time is that we get a high draft pick and get to pick earlier in each round. That's a big deal. Especially when we don't have a supplimental pick this coming year.
