09:07 AM ET 01.15 | The Milwaukee Brewers have exchanged contract proposals with Japanese outfielder Norichika Aoki, but general manager Doug Melvin said Saturday it was too early to tell if a deal could be worked out before the Tuesday deadline. "We've made an offer to him and he gave us a proposal back," said Melvin, who has been negotiating with Nez Balelo, the agent for Aoki. "That's where it's at. We're evaluating it. We're going to look at this vs. the other options out there with outfielders. We're still negotiating and exploring other options."

I'm sure that will replace the loss of Braun and Fielder's bats in the lineup.....

$2.5 mil posting fee and roughly another $1-1.5 mil per season... even beyond bonuses and performance perks, that's a pretty sound deal.
