MLB Trade Rumors: The St. Louis Cardinals Won't Pay What for Mark DeRosa?

Buster Olney of ESPN.com reports the Cleveland Indians are ready to deal OF/2B/3B Mark DeRosa and are looking for young pitching in return.  He mentions' the St. Louis Cardinals will not part with any of their relievers.

Maybe I am more aware of how inconsistent middle relief because I play fantasy baseball, but I think major league clubs should be too.  It is not as if fantasy baseball isn't rife throughout the under-40 crowd in the major leagues.

To think the Cardinals would pass on a player of Mark DeRosa's abilities at the cost of Kyle McClellan is ridiculous.  The NL Central is there for the Cards' taking and improving the infield production by replacing Joe Thurston with Mark DeRosa appears to be a no-brainer.
