"Sources say that Orioles second baseman Brian Roberts will be traded to the Cubs as soon as the Orioles decide which pitchers they want in return. . . ."
We have heard this before but it seems more likely to happen now that Derosa seems to be out for a bit. I know Derosa is not expected to miss too much time but health does raise a concern and now I see a deal happening soon, before the games start this week. I can also see the package increase to something like this-
O's get Marshall, Gallagher, Cedeno, and Eric Patterson
Cubs get Roberts
Just my thoughts though!
