He's gotta get his money before his name comes out as 1 of those 104 names.

If you are Roberts, what are you thinking? You have Boston, NY, and the Rays in that division, does he really think, they can compete with that?

What exactly is wrong with a guy staying with the team he WANTS to play for rather than going to the highest bidder like some kind of a mercinary?

If the Rays can win that division with a good young team then anyone can. I like what the Orioles have been doing lately with their young players. If it'll work, who knows?

Exactly. The Birds are not that far away. They need a starter or two, plus Izturis and Wigginton are competent players for now. Wieters is going to be a star very soon. Their outfield could become the best in the game if Pie responds to the opportunity. MacFail has them moving upward, for sure. Roberts must feel the same way, otherwise he would bolt. He also may just want the money before his name gets revealed. Who knows?
