Will the Roberts trade ever go away??
According to Chicagosports.com baseball reporter Phil Rogers the Cubs and Mariners are both still in talks with the O's. He expects the Roberts and Bedard to be traded within the next two weeks.( We have been hearing that for months). The O's want Colvin and Pie, Rogers says if the Cubs do move one of those guys they would want Bedard too! I honestly would give up Colvin and Pie along with Marshall, Gallagher, and Cedeno for Bedard and Roberts. That would really boast the lineup and rotation up. Then you could just sign Lofton as a stop gap for CF. But there is no way I would give up Hill in a deal for Bedard and Roberts. He is too valuable! He also stats the Cubs may just pass on Roberts, which we have heard recently because of the high asking price. Either way it would be nice to see Hendry and the O's to make a decision soon!
