Brian Roberts is currently riding a season high three game no hurt streak!

And Arrieta will be the Cubs potentially great pitcher. Being the top prospect doesn't translate into success.

And Strop is Strop. He threw a ball at the dugout bench in frustration. The bench hit it for a three run homer.

I think the Cubs were robbed in this deal.

Brian Roberts is welcome to quit. Even if he plays 30 or 50 games this year, though, we are better with him than without him.

You are correct there. Keep him or cut him loose, the Orioles have to pay him. And in his current condition even if they trade him, they'll still have to pay most of what he gets. But they are probably insured.

But your contract statement is actually similar what Mr Angelos told Davey Johnson when Jonson was demanding a new contract in 1997. To paraphrase, because the exact words escape me, "I have a contract with Mr Johnson and I will honor it and I expect the he will be a gentleman and do the same." To which Johnson replied "Oh yeah? Well I quit!" and never got another dime of Mr Angelos' money.

Should Showalter just pull the plug on Roberts or does his patience pay dividends with the players?
