According to ESPN the Bedard deal is finally near completion. Adam Jones and the rest of the players in the deal are now getting physicals. Once completed the deal will likely be announced this afternoon or tomorrow morning. League Officials now expect the deal that would send Roberts to the Cubs to be finalized and completed by the weekend. They now expect that George Sherrill to be part of the deal. The O's have no use for a 31 year old reliever in there pen and want to get younger. Sherrill will ensure that the O's will get at least two pitchers in the deal from the Cubs.

Officials say that the deal will include at least 4 to 6 players going to the O's for Roberts and Sherrill.
