Softening My Stance On Brian Roberts; Quick Hits

It’s so lovely to see snow outside for a change, and to have a Norman Rockwell painting outside my office window: however, in just a few weeks, pitchers and catchers will be reporting to sunny Florida to usher in the start of baseball season.

However, for many Orioles fans, the biggest issue on their mind besides the pitching rotation is of the status of Brian Roberts. A while ago, I felt that the team should trade him if needed, but now the more I think of it — they might want to give him what he wants.

Who’s in the pipeline? Who could replace his production? I have no clue. At this point, I’d say keep him, give him his extra year and flip him if needed.
