Lee (0-4), who has not won a game yet this season is still considered by many an attractive commodity and would undoubtedly net the Phillies a significant amount of value in return. There also seem to be a handful of teams who could afford and be allowed to bid for his services.

Quite an investment indeed but his Cy Young and postseason pedigree may be enough impetus for a contender to pull a trigger. Here are five teams who may be willing to just do that.
