I can't believe the Brewers are even considering this unless the Cards are gonna pick up a substantial amount of his contract just to get rid of him.
Apparently that's the thing that's held up the deal, St. Louis won't pay enough to satisfy Milwaukee and I don't know how they could. Mil. needs a 3rd basemen pretty bad but I would go with Feliz everyday over Rolen at this point. Maybe Feliz is asking way too much or is waiting things out to try to get some of the teams that miss out on the bigger fish to have a bidding war for his services.
