Brewers Have Possible Interest in Orioles 2B Brian Roberts?
According to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports the Brewers have been scouting the Orioles with specific interest in 2B and very good lead-off hitter Brian Roberts. Here is the link. But according to Brewers GM Doug Melvin the scouts were watching the Orioles as part of their "normal" assignments. I hope Melvin is bluffing because Roberts a "true" lead-off hitter could be a HUGE asset to this team. I would be fine with trading Weeks for Roberts (although with Weeks trip to the DL this seems unlikely now) or trading Hall and spare parts for Roberts. Here are Roberts career stats.
