Despite being 36 and injury prone, it's looking ever more likely that Brian Roberts will be returning to Baltimore in 2014.
According to Roch Kubatko of MASN, Roberts wants to stay and the front office wants him to stay, presuming he'll come back for a cheaper price than his previous four-year, $40-million contract.
Although that seems like a good thing, it may be a step backwards.
At no point in Roberts' career have the Orioles been a winning team with him in the field. Even the last two years with the Orioles' making the playoffs and nearly missing, with B-Rob in the lineup, the O's have a losing record, as they went 7-10 in 2012 and 38-39 in 2013 with Roberts in the lineup.
Still, fans still love Roberts and he wants to end his career in Baltimore according to Brittany Ghiroli of mlb.com, making his chances of re-signing with the Orioles pretty high.
