3-way AZ and Oakland Trade?

Javier Vazquez has reportedly asked for a trade out of Arizona, despite having $24 million coming to him over the next two years of his contract.

"As a pitcher traded in the middle of a long-term contract, Vazquez had the right to request a trade. The Diamondbacks, who acquired Vazquez last January in a trade that sent Randy Johnson to the Yankees, would have until March 15 to deal the right-hander. If they do not trade him by then, he can elect to become a free agent or rescind his trade request. If he elects free agency, he would void the final two years remaining on his contract at a total of $24 million."

I know that some people on here have proposed the idea of an Oakland-Arizona trade, being that the D-Backs are desperately in need of pitching, and we would like to acquire a right handed batter.

Vazquez's almost certain departure from AZ will only exacerbate their need for pitching.  Also, Vazquez says he wants to go to an east coast team, so perhaps Billy will works his 3-team magic.  Anyone got any ideas?
