    I wouldn't really want both pitchers if I could get Murton. Either Pie or Murton sets our five OFers. For the sake of Murton:

    LF - Scott (Murton)
    CF - Jones (Redman)
    RF - Markakis (Murton)

    ...that is the best OF we'd have since, well certainly Surhoff-Anderson-Belle (1999). Wow, that was a big-time OF, even for the steroid era (300 hitter & two 400 OBP guys). Too bad the locker room was a mess.
    Deal on table per the OH is Gallagher,Murton,Cedeno, & Veal.

    I think JW is most likely correct, the outfield will most likely be:

    LF- Luke Scott/Matt Murton (maybe Nolan Reimold if no Murton)
    CF- Jones
    RF- Markakis

    Then in a few years it very possible that Billy Rowell could occupy LF in 2-3 years. He's currently playing 3rd, but alot of scouts think he's too big. So he'll either switch to OF or 1B. Definitely watch this kid in the minors this season. I think he's going to have a huge year and skyrocket to the top of alot of prospect lists this time next year.

    Pie is probably Corey Patterson version 2, without the power and speed but with better contact ability. I do not want him coming back in a Roberts trade. Marshall, Cedeno, and Gallagher is great. Let's leave it there.

    Pie's totally overrated ... May not hit for average! Hasn't hit for power (no more than 15 HRS in any year & thats not at the majors)

    Jones is the Orioles CF , Scott was brought in to play left ... If they bring in a 4th OF from the Cubs his name will be Murton ... A far better hitting /Power prospects than Pie!
    Actually, I have seen Pie numerous times. He has some power.

    - Will be 26 years old this season.
    - Guy already has three years' MLB experience.
    - Most similar batter: Andre Ethier.
    - Above average defender.
    - RH, would platoon with Scott & spell Markakis.
    Looks good however I would probably take my chance on Pie

    From what the scouts say he was suppost to be the main guy in the Roberts deal, his potential is there however never heard of this Murton I'll have to look into it, (I know we're not getting Pie notice the parenthesis after Roberts, just thought what if.)
