Cubs’ Talks For Roberts Reach Impasse

According to Ken Rosenthal, the Cubs are unlikely to acquire second baseman Brian Roberts prior to the start of the season.  Jim Hendry and Andy MacPhail apparently could not find a match for the players involved.  The Cubs have also been scouting the Nationals; Felipe Lopez may be Plan B.  Shortstop is the main position where the Cubs are questionable.

It sounds like Hendry’s priority may now be finding outfield help, with Reed Johnson atop his list.  The Cubs don’t want to enter the season without a backup plan for Felix Pie.
