Brian Roberts

GENERAL INFO

Make no mistake, Brian Roberts is the real deal plus. He can beat you with his glove, range, bat, legs and leadership. He is a class act and one of the best infielders in baseball. We want him to finish his career in Baltimore. [2]
According to Phil Rogers of the Chicago Tribune, talks between the Cubs and O's about 2B Brian Roberts are back on. "This deal is almost certainly going to happen," writes Rogers, "The only question is when and how much it is going to cost the Cubs." [3]

MESA, Ariz. - The Cubs still hope to acquire second baseman Brian Roberts Brian Roberts and an outfielder before the end of spring training spring training, but general manager Jim Hendry shot down Internet and radio rumors that a trade is imminent. [7] I think Andy MacFAIL just started this whole thing to mess with the Cubs one more time. Any is Brian Roberts really worth 4 players! MacFAIL and Orioles deserve all the misery they get for the next 5 years. [2]

TEMPE, Ariz. — Baltimore president of baseball operations Andy MacPhail told reporters in Ft. Lauderdale Wednesday that a Brian Roberts deal with the Cubs is off the table. "We worked at it this long and we don't have deal," MacPhail said. [2] Make no mistake, Brian Roberts is the real deal plus. He can beat you with his glove, range, bat, legs and leadership. He is a class act and one of the best infielders in baseball. We want him to finish his career in Baltimore. [2] This is Reason No. 3487 why Peter Angelos and the Baltimore Orioles are a complete joke of a franchise. I'm pretty sure this was not MacPhail's doing, as many people here suspect, but rather Peter Angelos'. He's the reason why Roy Oswalt is not an Oriole, the reason why it took so long to move Erik Bedard this offseason, and more than likely why this Roberts' deal never happened. It's no coincidence that Brian Roberts happens to be Peter Angelos' favorite player. [2] Derosa is more than capable and giving up the farm for Brian Roberts is not a good move. He is a very good player but he's not THAT good. [2] Now DeRosa should be able to rest in peace for the first time since the winter meetings in Nashville in early December, when the Brian Roberts rumors began. [2] ". What gets done first — Cubs acquire Brian Roberts or Comcast and Big 10 Network come to terms for subscribers?? In the latter case, how much more must we continue to suffer?? [2] I really think Brian Roberts is really overated. Giving up to prospects for him was to much! We have a great team with what we have now. Lou is a great manager and Jim Hendry is a great GM. Both compliment each other very well. [2]

It's been a few weeks since there's been any talk coming out of Baltimore involving Brian Roberts being traded, but that doesn't mean that the Orioles had decided to keep Roberts around for this season. Now that the team they spent most of their time talking to about Roberts, the Chicago Cubs, starting second baseman Mark DeRosa has been having heart problems this spring, the talks are back on talks are back on. [8] The Cubs and Orioles have resumed trade talks involving second baseman Brian Roberts, and one person familiar with the talks indicated discussions were starting to get serious. [8] All winter, a Brian Roberts to the Cubs trade has kind of seemed like an inevitability. The Cubs and Orioles have been talking about this deal since before the Mitchell Report and it seemed like only a matter of time before these two crazy kids got together and figured things out. "I don't think we're going to do anything, to be honest with you," he said when asked about trading for an infielder. [8] I'm not sure I've ever seen a rumored trade take on a life of its own the way this " Brian Roberts to the Cubs" rumor has. Cubs' fans seem to be banking on Roberts as if he's the final piece that will magically transform the Cubs into the '27 Yankees. [8] Cubs general manager Jim Hendry alternated between being aghast and amused Saturday over a report that had the Cubs sending seven players to the Baltimore Orioles for second baseman Brian Roberts and left-handed pitcher Erik Bedard. The "deal" reportedly was killed by Orioles owner Peter Angelos, who last year hired former Cubs president Andy MacPhail to run his baseball operation. [8]

Ah the stove is getting hot once again. Of course, it's not cooking anything except wild innuendo and rumor, as Cubs GM Jim Hendry found out recently while a potential deal potential deal involving Brian Roberts grew completely out of proportion. [8]

The Flyers won despite playing poorly once again. They were bailed out by nine late points from Brian Roberts and a miserable shooting night from Leemire Goldwire Leemire Goldwire Leemire Goldwire. [8] Dayton's injuries and defensive deficiencies are part of the story but not the whole problem. They had six assists today and that lack of offensive balance has exposed their reliance on Brian Roberts (1-of-9 from three today). Whether he's on or off, though, there's no shortage of ways to beat the Flyers. [8] Jim Hendry Jim Hendry Jim Hendry Jim Hendry has a bugaboo that he just can't shake: He wants Brian Roberts. Wants him bad. "It's funny for me," DeRosa said Friday at Hi Corbett Field. "I feel like I've done enough. where I shouldn't be put in this position. Hopefully Jim and realize I'm one of the best hitters they have and my bat should be in the lineup." [8]

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. [9] Insert your own punchline in the comments. Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun could see the O's making a minor trade for a veteran second baseman if they acquire Ronny Cedeno but not Eric Patterson in a Brian Roberts deal with the Cubs. Brandon Inge is trying his best to talk his way out of town. [9]

SI.com's Jon Heyman wrote that the Cubs-Orioles Brian Roberts trade talks still have a little life, and the O's are scouting various young Cubs. On Sunday Jim Salisbury said the Orioles only needed to decide which pitchers they want to complete a deal. [9] SI.com's Jon Heyman wrote on Monday that the Cubs and Orioles had resumed talks for Brian Roberts. Cubs GM Jim Hendry came out on Wednesday and said he hadn't had any trade talks for five or six days. [9] According to Jon Heyman of SI.com, the Cubs and Orioles are talking Brian Roberts trade again. [9] ESPN's Jayson Stark has a new blog post jam-packed with hot stove rumors. The Cubs are getting frustrated with the Brian Roberts situation, wondering if they'll ever complete this trade. The Orioles are scouting players but still haven't given the Cubs the names they crave. [9] The Cubs and Orioles continue to be linked in trade speculation involving Brian Roberts. [9] The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec says the Cubs offered the Orioles Ronny Cedeno, Sean Gallagher, Donald Veal, and possibly Jose Ceda for Brian Roberts earlier this spring. [9] Dave van Dyck's sources agree that no deal is imminent. FRIDAY, 7:13am: We've actually got some movement this morning on the Brian Roberts front. According to Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times, the Cubs have added hard-throwing 21 year-old reliever Jose Ceda to their offer. They'd also send Sean Gallagher, Ronny Cedeno, and Donald Veal to Baltimore. [9] There's nothing cooking with the Cubs and Brian Roberts. The O's still intend to trade Roberts this year, along with pretty much all of their other veterans. Their hot start is unlikely to halt the farm sale. [9] Brian Roberts update: Stark talked to a club official who's in touch with the Cubs and O's. That guy expects a deal to be done next week. [9] SI.com's Jon Heyman said the Cubs and Orioles had resumed talks for Brian Roberts, and one of his sources said these talks were getting serious. [9] Here's the one-liner that has caught some readers' attention: Sources say that Orioles second baseman Brian Roberts will be traded to the Cubs as. [9] According to Paul Sullivan of the Chicago Tribune, the Orioles asked the Cubs for 21 year-old righty Jose Ceda as part of a Brian Roberts deal at some point this winter. [9] Andy MacPhail told reporters that "a Brian Roberts deal with the Cubs is off the table," according to Paul Sullivan. [9] For now I just have a tidbit to add from the esteemed Peter Gammons in Saturday's blog: The Cubs will eventually get Brian Roberts. Andy MacPhail has to decide whom he wants. [9] According to Ken Rosenthal, the Cubs are unlikely to acquire second baseman Brian Roberts prior to the start of the season. [9] This morning it was reported that the Cubs had two scouts at the Orioles' spring game yesterday to watch Brian Roberts. [9] Let's discuss. Rosenthal does not see the Cubs taking on the salaries of both Brian Roberts and Coco Crisp, even if they shed their Jason Marquis commitment. [9] Here are a few links to whet your appetite, including a Brian Roberts sighting. You didn't think we could go two days without a Robert update, did you? Phil Rogers of the Chicago Tribune notes that the White Sox are looking for a middle infielder and wonders if they might get involved in the Roberts sweepstakes. [9] MLB Roundup is back, hosted by Stephanie Rosa. This week I talk about. what else? Brian Roberts. [9] Jeff Zrebiec and Roch Kubatko of the Baltimore Sun are on top of the Brian Roberts rumors. [9] Here's the latest. Brian Roberts is not in Orioles' camp today; he's gone to a local hospital for a stomach ailment. Roch Kubatko does not believe he's secretly been traded. [9]
