From what I have read the Pads want at the very least a Major league ready outfield bat and a major league ready starting pitcher in addition to another prospect or two. They were asking for Yunel Escobar and a top pitching prospect from the Braves.

I think the problem with what the Cubs are offering is the Pads would prefer to get players with little to no MLB experience and guys like Cedeno and Marshall are entering arbitration years and will be eligible for significant bumps in pay.
