That said, we would clearly need a significant chunk of Lee's salary for a team like ARZ to bite. They do not have the pockets for a 25M a year pitcher. Eating that salary contradicts half the value fo a trade for either imo.
Unfortunately even if acquired Charlie wouldn't put him in the leadoff spot. That's Rollins' spot until he is no longer on the roster.
