From the Dept. of Why Didn't I Think of That, The Cub Reporter offers Great Moments in Brian Roberts-to-Cubs-Trade-Rumor-History. Seriously, is the longest we've ever seen a significant trade discussed for so long before consummation? It's been nearly four months, with updates every day. And more than two months ago the Chicago Tribune reported, "This deal almost certainly is going to happen -- the only question is when and how much it's going to cost the Cubs." That was the big question then and it's a big question now.
