Perhaps the more things change, the more they stay the same.
Well, read what I saw below on ESPN this morning. Read into it what you wish, but does Andy MacPhail have the power or what? Killing a 7 for 2 deal is a little puzzling, but of course we don't know the details.
Then again, it is only a rumor; this, take it for what it's worth. With less than a month before spring training, perhaps MacPhail is still waiting for the deal he wants since he's got two big hands to play; however, it is looking more and more that both Roberts and Bedard will still remain Baltimore Orioles heading into Spring Training.
The fans wanted more change; however, it may not be happening soon. Is 2008 already a throwaway year like my tag team partner James Baker opines on Oriole Magic?
In one word, yes.
Well, Camden Yard is still gorgeous, and the new HD scoreboard will be a welcome sight.
From ESPN.com: Orioles owner Peter Angelos killed a 7-for-2 trade that would have sent second baseman Brian Roberts and left-handed pitcher Erik Bedard to the Cubs, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
"I don't think we're going to do anything, to be honest with you," Cubs manager Lou Piniella told the newspaper when asked about trading for an infielder. "If we do, it'll be in the outfield. ? It would be a right-handed bat to help out in center field. I would think that's probably a possibility, as opposed to the other things you all have been hearing about."
The Cubs reportedly are interested in Rangers outfielder Marlon Byrd.
