According to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe he still believes that the Cubs are not out of the race for both Bedard and Roberts. He says that sources are telling him that Bedard and Roberts could become northsiders in a deal that would send the O's the Cubs farm system. I honestly believe the Cubs are done with the O's ridiculous demands. I see no reason to give up guys like Hill and Pie along with guys like Veal, Gallagher and Colvin among others for Bedard and Roberts. Giving up Hill would be a big mistake and I don't see Hendry doing that. Sources also say they see Bedard being traded within the week but doesn't mention Roberts being delt. My wishful, unlikely thinking would be for the Cubs to get Byrd, Bedard, and Roberts without giving up Pie or Hill but that would never ever happen!
Nick also notes that Towers really wants to get his hands on Murton. I say give us Greene and we will throw in Gallagher and Cedeno.
