The Orioles want to sign Brian Roberts to a contract extension, but it's not close to happening yet. At least that's my understanding. But it's on the to-do list.

I also should clarify something Jim Duquette said concerning Carlos Lee, because it led to some vice president bashing: When he noted how Lee's first preference was the Houston Astros, "as we found out in the end," he didn't mean the Orioles suddenly discovered this as Lee was signing a contract. He was referring to how it became obvious to everyone. The Lee-to-Houston speculation started before the playoffs did.
