Rumor is the White Sox are looking to trade pitcher Gavin Floyd to the Orioles for second baseman Brian Roberts. If this happens, it could rekindle that Bailey for Dye trade talk, IMO.

Roberts to the "other" Chicago?

Brian Roberts always seems to be linked to the Chicago Cubs in trade rumors, but White Sox general manager Kenny Williams loves the guy and is trying to acquire him.

The two sides have discussed former Mount St. Joe pitcher Gavin Floyd as a starting point in trade talks. The Orioles might need more, though the White Sox would want it to be straight-up, since they'd be surrendering a 17-game winner.

At least Orioles president Andy MacPhail could say he brought a local kid home. It's just not Mark Teixeira.

Anyway, that's the buzz.

I'd like to have had Roberts at @ and Pillips @ SS, but I'm guessing Varndon's ar second to stay.

Yeah, I think Roberts might have the versatility to play @. Varndon definitely doesn't though.
