    Cubs increase offer for Roberts

    They seem determined to get this deal done one way or another.

    I just don't see why Chicago needs him so bad, they have plenty of talented infielders. BTW, when does derosa come back from his heart problems?
    Go Cardinals!

    Re: Cubs increase offer for Roberts

    I think they should make a move for Ron Belliard instead...

    Yeah, he was a good player for the cards, and you have to love the dreads.

    We always seem to want to mortgage the future for a washed up player. This deal is no different IMO.

    Re: Cubs increase offer for Roberts

    I got to watch him alot last year and he is a very underrated player, especially defensively. He has decevingly good range and a decent arm. He also had a number of clutch hits for the Nats last year. He's also a pretty decent clubhouse guy.

    Belliard .290 11 58 32ys old
    Roberts .290 12 57 30ys old.

    Roberts does have a huge advantage in SB's though.

    So then why they heck do they need Roberts? Derosa is a good player.

    They are wanting a leadoff hitter who can steal bases. That is what Roberts does.

    What happened to Alex Cintron? I thought that's what he did best?

    I don't think many people are sold on Cintron as an every day player. He hit .243 with only 2 SB last year in 68 games and 185 AB.

    The thinking behind getting a true leadoff hitter is it allows Soriano to move down in the lineup where he belongs (more RBI).

    Why not Ryan Theriot?

    I'm a cardinals fan, but the riot has to be the coolest last name ever. What if he gets in a fight? I can imagine the headlines.
