Brian Roberts?!

Wow.

I picked this guy up thinking to get steals and runs galore, but in the past few days..he's been slugging the ball and knocking in RBI like mad. Believe it or not he's leading my team in HR..Pretty scary, but i'm gonna enjoy this ride ;-D

I picked him up off the waiver wire to help with my runs and steals. Started him in my utility position and then at 2B for the injured Marcus Giles. I love what I've seen from Roberts so far. He's one of those little scrappers that can sometimes make or break your team. Let's hope he keeps it up, and I'm hoping the guy that dropped him is paying attention. :-D

I have him and I'm loving it.

He's one of those 27 year old players who should break out.

It's hard to believe the 27 year bit but I feel like having one team that features all players that are 27 and that are about to have career years. The thing about this is that most of the breakouts are superstars. Don't expect JFrasor, MDiaz, Endy Chavez to fall into this category.

It's very interesting. I'm trying to get some of the players on the list.

He's carrying my team right now (well, him and Godzilla Matsui). It's allowing me the luxury of being patient until Thome and Vlad break out.

On my team in the H2H World Series, I have guys like Arod, Ortiz & Edmonds...and Roberts is currently my best HR guy!

Roberts is also in his third complete season, when his confidence is built up to the point where he is primed for a breakout year according to a thread that was going around here in the preseason.

More proof he was on to something!
