what would it take to acquire chris nelson from the rockies?

i am guessing pitching, but how much? obviously, not matt garza, but how about trey mcnutt, robert whitenack and michael bowden? or maybe carlos marmol if we pay all of his salary-9.8 million-this season? nelson would solve the cubs third base problem as he could platoon with ian stewart and also give darwin barney a day off once a week and starlin castro a day off every other week while barney slides over to play shortstop. i realize that valbuena can also play ss-2b-3b, however, limiting his at-bats seems like a good idea.
