Why haven't more teams inquired about Carlos Marmol?

Since we all know this team is in rebuild mode and other GM's obviously know that as well it seems like more teams should be inquiring about Marmol in my opinion. Carlos would be very valuable to a playoff contending team in 2012. I do think Carlos would be so much more valuable in the 8th inning role rather than the closer role to a team like the Tigers or Red sox or Phillies or a team like that. Do you think Theo and Jed have been contacted about Carlos? What kind of mid prospect/high prospect could Theo and Jed get in return? If any? Marmol doesn't really fit into our plans two or three years down the road does he? so lets get something for him why not right? If Tyler colvin and DJ can land us our starting 3rd baseman in 2012 what can a guy with the kind of stuff that Carlos has land us? just sayin. I am totally fine with Shark or even Russell closing in '12 if dealing Marmol can help us down the road. Thoughts
