Reds interested in Cliff Lee?

The Cincinnati Enquirer is reporting that the Reds have contacted the Mariners about the availability of pitcher Cliff Lee. Lee is having another stellar season, sporting an 8-3 record with a 2.34 ERA and 89 strike outs to just 6 walks, a very impressive total. 

The Reds came in to today 1 1/2 games ahead of the Cardinals, and could use some added depth in the rotation down the stretch. Lee would give the Reds a serious chance at the NL title, something that has been out of reach for a very long time. 

What would it cost them?

If the Reds want to get a deal done fast, they could look into offering Jay Bruce or a young starting pitcher.
