I know that people are going to hate me saying this... but I'm going to say it.
Brian Roberts being named in the Mitchell report, even if its hearsay or whatever, could be a blessing for Orioles fans.
Why? Because maybe Peter Angelos will finally let the front office trade him. I dont think it will hurt his trade value all that much, because people in baseball wont be willing to crucify players based on second-hand reports. Casual fans however, might not be kind to Roberts, and the good PR he gives the Orioles may fade away.
I have enjoyed watching Roberts immensely, but the Orioles need to trade him. Thats the only way we will contend anytime soon.
