    Say Baltimore gets Marshall or Hill for Roberts.. would that mean they would be more up to dealing Bedard?

    Deal could be coming...

    8:45 p.m., from Steve Phillips
    • The Cubs and Orioles have discussed a Brian Roberts trade. Baltimore would get Rich Hill and Sean Marshall for the second baseman.
    Does that open the door moreso for a Bedard trade, or is it a sign that they may decide to keep him and build around him?

    I can't believe they are going to give up Marshall and Hill for Roberts. If I'm an O's fan, I'm on the edge of my seat right now.

    That sounds like a lot to give up for Roberts, even though I do like him.

    That would be a pretty solid deal for the Orioles. Hill allows his fair share of homers, but he also posted a .695 OPSA last year and a very solid 8.45 K/9. In addition to Hill, Sean Marshall profiles as a solid #4/5 starter. Roberts is a nice player and all, but I would pull the trigger on that deal if I were the Orioles.

    It does make one wonder. I suppose with Hill and Marshall in hand, the O's would no longer be worried about their pitching. I wonder if that's when Wayne steps in with an offer of Brandon Phillips for Bedard?

    if that deal goes thru and the O's get Rich Hill, maybe they will trade Bedard for a package of Bailey, Stubbs, Votto and Maloney for Bedard..

    Or maybe they'll keep Bedard, Hill and Marshall and hope they stand a better chance against the Yankees, Red Sox and Tigers lineups.

    Are the Cubs serious? As a closet O's fan, I hope this goes through.

    Is Roberts really that much of an upgrade over Theriot and whoever else the Cubs had playing 2B this year? I think they are crazy to make this deal.
