Brian Roberts leaves with knee injury

The guy has worked his butt off to get back to the "big show" and to have a setback like this has to be devastating to him. He was playing good defense, getting a few hits and stealing bases. Let's hope he'll be back in the line-up in May. The O's are a better team with him...

Orioles are saying 2-4 weeks for a ruptured hamstring but this doesn't seem good to me. Pulled hamstrings are tricky enough but ruptured tells me something else. I wonder if we call up Schoop at some point?? Flaherty doesn't seem to have much range at 2B and I have little confidence in Casilla 8-)

I've seen this same sort of love being given to other sports players. Ignore the ugly and praise the rest. I have said my peace on Brian Roberts.

I could just as easily reverse your point:

"I've seen this same sort of hate being given to other sports players. Ignore the good and criticize the rest."

Yes, he cheated and lied.

Humans are complicated creatures filled with contradictions and flaws. Sometimes they do good and sometimes they do bad. I've never met an interesting person who hadn't made significant mistakes in their lives. Redemption is among the most universal human experiences.

I've always liked Brian Roberts, and enjoyed watching him play for the Baltimore Orioles. I've always seen him as a good and decent person. And I came to that conclusion knowing full well that he also cheated and lied over the course of his career.

I hope no one out there chooses to define me by the most notable mistakes I've made in my life.

It will be good to see Brian back. Maybe that will wake up this offense!!! 8-)

Roberts will have hamstring surgery today. A reasonable guess is that he's out until around August 1st.

I wonder if that increases our interest in Utley?? 8-)

Roberts is fried; I hate to say it.The Orioles need to assume he's finished and look elsewhere for a second baseman. Probably a fill-in this year and something more permanent next yr. I think Utley w/be available at some point, although I wouldn't trade the farm to get him.And he'd have to be healthy enough to be FT for the last 65 games or so.

I dunno, I think depth is good enough and they only trade for a rental if the price is very reasonable.
