He does look like a coach in the dugout.Rising O's wrote:I really do not understand why he is still with the team. Is he looking to coach? Is Showalter showing him the ropes? Its the only thing I can come up with.
Beaker wrote:Every game I watch and see Brian Roberts in the dugout I always get to wondering will he ever hit the field again in an Orioles uniform or any uniform at that. Not only is he dealing with the head injuries, but also the emergence of Robert Andino at 2B. I think his time is over for the Orioles. What do you all think?
Beaker wrote:He was much better than Andino pre-concussion, but the affects of a concussion can take a long time to recover. I like Roberts and really hope he can return to his old form, but if he misses this entire year and Andino has a good year I think his options at least with the Orioles are up.
Beaker wrote:They can possibly try and trade him, but really coming off an injury like this one it would be hard to get something equal in trade for him.
I have heard even loud noises like big crowds at the games bothers his head.dan72 wrote:I have heard some baseball experts say that he is done. I feel that if he is able to come back, the least minor jarring to his head would finish him. That could come from a swing and miss, a slide into a base, diving for a ground ball ,virtually anything. I have played football at a high level and I have seen what concussions can do to a person.
Unfortunately money is involved here. Brian doesn't want to walk away from a mountain of cash, I would think that the Orioles should have some sort of insurance on a contract of that size. If I were the club, I would force his hand.
