Brian Roberts’ name came up often in our recent reader survey. It’s a love/hate thing – people either want more Roberts updates or none at all.
The Roberts frustration is not unlike our experiences with Erik Bedard and Johan Santana earlier this winter. Readers were happy to see those deals finalized; they dragged too long and many of the news items weren’t interesting.
One thing I can’t do is stop posting updates on the Roberts trade or any other predominant hot stove story. This site exists to provide the latest trade and signing news. If you’re sick of a certain deal it should be easy to glance at the headline and scroll right past it.
