Orioles Focused On Markakis, Roberts

According to Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun, the Orioles are focused on signing Nick Markakis and Brian Roberts to contract extensions.  Markakis is under team control for three more years, while Roberts is under contract for 2009 at $8MM.

Zrebiec talked to Orioles president Andy MacPhail, who says the team has talked generalities with both players' agents.  Roberts does not want to talk about a contract once spring training begins.  It makes sense for MacPhail to figure out his situation soon, to allow time for trade talks if Roberts cannot be extended.

My guess at possible Roberts suitors if he hits the market: the White Sox, Indians, Cardinals, Cubs, Diamondbacks, and Brewers.
