moving on the the next disappointment?

 

just thought i'd propose a thoughtful trade for roberts, based on nothing in any media outlet other than my own boredom, curiosity, and snooping...

as always, the cubs appear to be the the team most in desire of b-rob, and what with their recent shipping of derosa, maybe their interest will be rejuvenated.  so scouring their system, my thoughts for a decent trade might be as follows:

in return for roberts we get:  micah hoffpauir, ryan flaherty, and sean marshall, or if they're unwilling to part with marshall, then 2 of the following in his stead:  tony thomas, starlin castro, junior lake, casey coleman, esmailin caridad, or mitch atkins.  we get a serviceable 1st base with some pop and a projectable 2b/ss prospect, plus either a pitcher we need or a couple other prospects who at least have a chance in hell of panning out...

i'm sure there are a million reasons why this won't or shouldn't happen, but thought i'd say what those more in the know might think...i love b-rob, but what are we going to get for him?  other trade ideas?  other teams?
