Roberts talks getting serious!

According to Jon Heyman of SI.com talks are getting serious. It seems the O's want to dump Jay Payton on the Cubs in the Roberts deal so they Cubs in return send Marquis to the O's. It seems to me the Cubs and O's will hammer out a deal soon.

Here is a list of players the O's may get in a deal-

Sean Gallagher
Ronny Cedeno
Eric Patterson
Matt Murton
Mike Fontantoe
Jason Marquis
Sean Marshall
Tim Lahey
Donald Veal
Kevin Hart

Players that will not be in the deal-

Felix Pie- Hendry says he is off limits
Carlos Marmol- Same
Jose Ceda- Same

I know it's only been 5 games and it's spring training, but Pie has 2 HR's the rest of the starters 0 HR's. And more important his OBP is 385. Also even though Fukudome has only 1 hit his OBP is 500. The kids are hitting 300 or better (Soto,Cedeno,Patterson, and Hoffpauir). And we even have 3 left hand relief pitchers with 0.00 (Pignatiello, campusano, and Jones). But i can't find any stats or news on Wuertz, does anyone know what happened to him?

Nick I... cubs.com said Wuertz hasnt seen action to build up arm strength. But I never read anything prior saying he was injured. Maybe dead arm right off the bat?
