I was offered a trade where I give up Rollins and receive Peralta and Lilly in return.
He really wants Rollins. Will I be getting enough in return, or should I ask for more or different players?

You should expect to receive a top 10 pitcher + Peralta for Rollins. Rollins is a late first round, early second round pick. Think at least Haren, Halladay, Webb, or Hamels. As is you are getting the (very) short end of the stick.
looking at it more in depth the only trade i would even think about from him is Peralta+Beckett for Rollins, but that still isn't enough given your SP situation... i think you need to put Rollins on the block and like someone else said look for a Hamels, Halliday, Haren type with a SS coming too... rollins is worth a ton more and with Lackey headed to the DL your already dismal staff just took a HUGE hit, your looking at a 1/2/3 of Wainwright/Harang/Weaver on some teams thats a 3/4/5 if not a 4/5/6 combo... you need some huge pitching help...
Obviously, reject the offer and he doesn't have anything you need that is worth dealing Rollins. If he had a top flight ace like Lincecum, it would be worth looking into the options because QS and W are both stats but his team has basically the same strengths and weaknesses as yours ie strong OF, below average closers, lower tier starting 1B, ok starting pitching but an upgrade would be nice and so forth.
