I have no idea where you could possibly even gauge these numbers right now.
It's my estimate based on what I've seen other teams get for similar players (not what the Sox have been getting for ours the last few years when we basically gave productive players away).
I agree that Alexei wouldn't yield a top 100 player, but since we have no other SS, I figure we'd need a good prospect to deal him. Maybe that's where Dee Gordon comes in - not a great prospect but he can play SS. And the Dodgers have a big need for a SS - they may think they can fix Alexei and overpay, just as Williams has done before (and he often did fix them).
