What compensation for Theo would be a "Win" for the Cubs?

I think the Cubs hold the cards here as they have other options to hire at GM and the BoSox will have a PR nightmare on their hands if they return from negotiations in a damaged relationship with a lame duck GM that doesn't want to be there, no prospects to show for it, and an additional $7mil that needs to be paid for salary and bonus to Mr. Epstein. Personally I don't think it's worth giving up anymore than a few low level prospects and I would walk away if the deal required anyone considered a top 15 prospect.
As a Cubs fan what compensation to the BoSox in exchange for Epstein would you consider a win for the Cubs?

Now, that feels like the bare minimum the Cubs would have to give up - and it would be a win. So, if the Cubs could give up a couple prospects not named B Jackson, McNutt, Vitters, or Szczur, I suppose you'd have to say it's a win.
But, then again, if the Cubs give up, for example, Marco Hernandez and DJ LeMahieu? If I'm the Sawx, I'm thrilled with that return.
