B-Rob Stays An O (For Now)

With Andy MacPhail's recent comments, it sounds like Brian Roberts is going to stay on the team for the foreseeable future. I've said (multiple times) that the Orioles wouldn't be a much worse team if they got back a package that included Ronny Cedeno and Eric Patterson (probably no more than one win, maybe two).

I have very little reason to not trust MacPhail's decision making, and if Roberts is traded later for more than Cedeno, Patterson, Sean Gallagher, Matt Murton, and a C+ prospect then I'll forgive his (maybe excessive) patience. If Roberts plays out two years and leaves, or has his value drop due to age/injury/luck/etc... then waiting will have been a mistake. I would trade him now, but I'm not the GM.
