GM: Cubs not done dealing

05:24 AM ET 03.17 | The worst-kept secret of spring training is the Cubs' desire to make one or more trades before Opening Day. ''You try to hold off and try to get the best guy you can,'' Jim Hendry said. ''And that's what we're still going to try to do. And the other things, you don't know whether they are going to happen.'' The ''other things'' likely center on the Cubs' hunt for Orioles second baseman Brian Roberts, though sources from both sides indicate a deal probably wouldn't be struck until the final days of camp. The Cubs also have interest in Red Sox center fielder Coco Crisp, a switch hitter, and the Rangers' Marlon Byrd, a righty-swinging outfielder who could play center. The need for another outfielder has become so great, manager Lou Piniella will give right fielder Kosuke Fukudome some looks in center this week.
