Reds - Orioles Trade

Interesting deal just announced on ESPN.  The Reds sent Ryan Freel to the Orioles for Ramon Hernandez.  This opens the door for Matt Weiters to take his place in Baltimore.  He's the early favorite for 2009 AL ROY.

Related to the Cubs, does this give some hope or merit of a potential deal moving Roberts to the Cubs in the Peavy deal (Ivy Walls, I'm talking to you!)?  Does this mean Freel may come to the Cubs instead of Roberts? 

I've always liked Freel.  He's a gritty player who'e best year's are probably behind him.  He could take a walk and always seemed to be a tough out versus the Cubs.  I think the floodgates of multiple deals and signings is about to happen.
