Carlos Lee, worth pursuing?

As if we couldn't assume, the Astros will likely be one of the sellers this summer. Richard Justice blogs that the Astros will be selling on Carlos Lee and others, and even willing to pick up some of the salaries. I don't see anyone they have worth pursuing for the Giants other than Lee and Oswalt, but Lee obviously fills a greater need.

Here's some of the Pros and Cons of Lee:

Pro: Middle of the order hitter. Projects for a high .800 OPS. Averaged 20.9 replacement runs from '06-08. Averaged a dollar value of $12.66 M over '06-09. Right handed hitter, whom the Giants already had interest in.

Con:  Butcher in left field. 32 years old (33 in June), and has recent injury issues. Remaining salary of $18.5 M through 2012 (74 M over 4 years). Would likely move Freddie to the bench.

 

So is Carlos Lee worth pursuing? If so what would it take to get him?
