...The talks with the Orioles are back on; or maybe they were never actually off. Anyway, Phil Rogers over at the the Chicago Tribune has reported that the Orioles will remain in talks with the Cubs and the Mariners for players Brian Roberts and Erik Bedard. Phil Rogers believes that the holdup in the Rogers deal may exist over Tyler Colvin and Felix Pie. Rogers thinks that if either player is involved in a trade, it will be for both Roberts AND Bedard. I say send over Colvin in a package for both of them and call it done. Easier said than done probably, but this would solve two pretty big needs and would help the club immensely. Hopefully this happens soon, to turn speculation into fact.
