Roberts Update. Cubs first ST game.

Thanks to MLBTR-

Nothing groundbreaking on the Brian Roberts front, but here's the latest from Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun. Zrebiec says the O's won't send their scout to watch the Cubs until next week. It's still looking like Ronny Cedeno, Sean Gallagher, and one or two others. Zrebiec adds:

Both sides remain optimistic that a deal could get done.

This is obviously dragging, but the Orioles have no incentive to rush.

I still think a deal will get done, especially if Soriano's legs are not 100%.


The Cubs had a pretty decent first game, scoring 12 runs on 15 hits. Fukudome got HBP in his first AB, walked, and had a nice RBI single that was chopped over the 3b head. The player of the day was Fontenot, he went 2 for 4 with a 3 run homer. Pie also added a homer in the 4th inning on the first pitch he saw from Matos.

As for the pitchers, Dempster did pretty good giving up a homer and 2 hits while walking 0 in 2 innings of work. Ceda did not look good lacking control and giving up 2 ER in .2 innings pitched.

Lets go get them tomorrow Cubbies!!
