4 more years: O’s sign Roberts

The Orioles will announce tomorrow that second baseman Brian Roberts has agreed to a four-year extension worth about $40 million.Brian Roberts isn't really this tall.

One of the few bright spots at Camden Yards over the last few seasons, Roberts is a home-grown O and sounds fairly pleased to remain in Baltimore. They’re still putting the last touches on the deal, but this morning, Roberts told the Baltimore Sun, “If it works out the way we want it to, it’s great for me and my family.”

His family is his new wife, Diana Chiafair, who also happens to be some kind of softcore model. Huh! What a coincidence! A ballplayer and a model? Who the hell knew?

Anyway, Mr. and Mrs. ChiaPet can now settle down and start a family in the Land of Pleasant Living.

Or can they? Andy MacPhail has been trying to deal Brian Roberts since the day he arrived in Baltimore in June of 07. Roberts has almost been a Cub several times and has been linked to trade rumors almost nonstop for the past two seasons.

I don’t know what kind of trade veto the 31-year-old has, but it seems to me that, at $10 million a year, he could still be dealt. But then, Chase Utley made about $7.8 million last year. Dustin Pedroia signed for six years and $40 million in December. And Brandon Phillips makes something like $3 million. So maybe MacPhail really is finally comfortable with Roberts at second and in the leadoff hole.

Roberts, who we shouldn’t forget has admitted to using performance enhancing drugs, has been a favorite at Camden Yards, both in the stands and in the warehouse. Owner Peter Angelos has made no secret of his affection for Roberts.

And I make no secret of my fondness for Roberts’ on-base percentage, his occasional home run pop, his durability, his stolen bases and his doubles.
