My first thought was why would they be interested in Martin Perez as a 'center piece' with his 4.1 walks/9ip and 4.9 strikeouts/9ip in AAA this year? He has a good arm and he is pretty young, but those aren't exactly the results you want to see from someone who is one of the main parts to a trade for a legit ace.
My guess is that it would take a Major League starter (position or pitcher) and several top prospects.
