Bedard To Mariners Finalized, Roberts To Cubs Next?
The Mariners and the Orioles have finally completed a deal that sends Erik Bedard to the Mariners in return for Adam Jones, George Sherrill, Chris Tillman, Tony Butler and Kam Mickolio. This most likely means the Orioles will now shift their focus to trading Brian Roberts. There is two offers i could see. One, Marshall, Murton, Cedeno, and probably Marquis, for Roberts. The second one would involve George Sherrill. I would think something like, Gallagher, Colvin, Cedeno, and Murton and Marshall would maybe get it worked out. Hopefully something can get done and will be able to report to spring training the same day as Lee, Ramirez, Soriano, etc. report.
