Granted, but if the FO wouldn't get rid of Gregg (a player the fans DIDN'T like) at half of Roberts' salary, what makes you think they will get rid of a player the fans (and PA) DOES like?
The worse that Roberts will cost us is a spot on the 40 Man over the winter and I don't think he'll bump any solid prospects. I don't see us going for a Rule 5 player so we should be OK there. If he's unable to make the opening day roster we can always put him back on the 60 Day DL and clear a roster space on the 40 Man.

I think if you keep playing this guessing game you put the organization behind in its ability to prepare a workable 25 man roster.
