Why are you putting Robers on the 60 day DL? Players can only be moved to the 60 day if a spot on the 40 man roster needs to be created

And last time I checked, Casilla was doing decent against LHP.

Woops, sorry bout the Roberts take.

Casilla has been awful, though.

Bring up Navarro and send down Flaherty.

I don't think that is going to happen. I called for it to over the weekend but now I see this:

With 20% of the season played

Flaherty 0 errors

Navarro 4 errors

Schoop 5 errors

Multiple those numbers times 5 for a full season and they tell the story of why Flaherty stays. As long as the O's keep scoring 5 runs a game with Flaherty in the lineup, the O's management probably thins they can afford to keep him there for his defense.

AND there is no particular reason to think that Navarro will hit better than Flaherty going forward. Their career minor- and major- league numbers are quite similar.

Roberts shouldn't be in Sarasota..he lives there. Make him rehab in Norfolk. Or just FDA him already

Roberts should be in Sarasota. That's the best place for him to rehab right now. I think that it's good that he lives in the same town that he's rehabbing in. Hopefully, he'll make to Norfolk to play in some games.

Well actually I think I would really have trouble accepting 40 million dollars for no ouput considering:

1. PED's abuse aided in creating performance that led to contract.

2. Concussion which caused lost time was self induced.

I'm not sure how much this bothers Brian, but I'd like to think there are honorable people (maybe me) that would return a large portion of his contract to a good cause. I mean he has done nothing for 4 years and 40 million dollars... even Albert Belle provided some value.

I respect your points, however, baseball contracts are guaranteed. So I would have no trouble accepting the 40 million that was negotiated by my agent. My further rationale would be as follows:

1. I still produced those numbers in the majors against others who were using as well.

2. While tapping myself on the helmet didn't help, no one was complaining about the headfirst slides that contributed to my head injuries.

I doubt that Brian Roberts has trouble sleeping at night, nor should he. I'll say it again it's a guaranteed contract. IMO there is no dishonor in being paid the terms of your contract while you are injured. Further, I'd be surprised if he doesn't donate a significant amount of money to charity.This despite your catagorizing him as a lazy PED abusing, self abusing, dishonorable money hoarder. Finally, Roberts has provided much more value than Belle ever did during his tenure with the Orioles IMO.

Brian has owes nothing to anyone. He signed a contract, all MLB contracts are basically a risk as they are guaranteed. In this case the O's lost out and did not get even close to full value. That said one could argue there a number of years were Brian outperformed his compensation. At least it was just a 4 yr deal and not some really long term deal ala ARoid or Pujols.

Honestly there is no reason to cut him at this point. He is going to get paid regardless and if there is even a chance he can get back and provide some increased production from 2B its worth the gamble of keeping him on the 40 man. If he cant get back on the field on a consistent basis by the first week of July then the O's need to take stock of what 2B options may be available to them via trade. Utley might be a guy to look at as he is a impending free agent but lets see if he is on the field come July. The guy has not had the best track record health wise over the past few years. It also give time to continue evaluating Schoop IMO.
