Brain Roberts ?

Postby ninremix » Thu Feb 21, 2008 3:54 am

The Baltimore Sun reports that Brian Roberts did not show up in camp Wednesday in Fort Lauderdale. But before everyone starts talking "imminent trade," a team spokesman said the second baseman has a stomach ailment and he had to visit the local hospital.

The team insists that the situation has nothing to do with ongoing trade rumors. Roberts indicated Tuesday that he wouldn't be against a trade if it gave him a better chance to win. Asked specifically about potentially being dealt to the Cubs, Roberts called them "a great organization" and indicated that he wouldn't mind playing in Chicago. "It's just a touchy situation just because I love the Orioles," Roberts said. "Wherever I am Opening Day, I'll do my job."


Roberts is among the classiest players in all of baseball IMO. I'm torn on roberts. I love him as a baseball player and love seeing him in an Orioles uniform, but hes probably the best trading piece left on the team. I think Roberts realizes this as well...
