Now before you all kill me on this. I got a few emails today saying the Cubs are close to getting Roberts from Baltimore. Then another emailer send me this link- http://forum.orioleshangout.com/forums/showthread.php?t=56595.. Now giving this is a message board you can take it with a grain of salt but it seems logical. The board has 3 reliable posters on there( Peace, Bigbird, and Belkast). They have already said the deal would likely include Murton, Gallagher, and Patterson and could be done by tomorrow. If the Cubs can get Roberts for those three players it would be a decent deal for both teams. A little FYI, Peace is the same poster who called the Tejada trade a full 24 hours before it happened! Check it out on Orioles Hangout.
I hope this is true because Roberts would be a big spark to this team!!
