[/quote]I'm not interested in trading Roberts unless I get an insane offer. If you're like me, you drafted him for his SBs and Runs; the HRs he's hitting right now are a lovely bonus.

(SB and R already today!)[/quote]

Yeah, I'm watching the game right now as well. He walked, stole 2nd and got home on a Tejada single.(This should be happening most of the year) As he crossed home plate I started thinking what I could offer to get him. I won't do it b/c I'm an O's fan and would prob overpay, but if the right deal came along I would love to have this guy on my team.

I'm not sure when I should move willis, or if I should considering old boy Jack's statements about lettting his pitchers pitch full games and my league counts CG.

Robrts is a HUGE sell high right now. He is ranked #1 on yahoo lol

there is no way. NO way he keeps this up, I doubt he will even hit 10 Home Runs and his avg will fade back down below 280.

He never been that good, last year after the break he hit like 245 with an OBP of 280.

Roberts will steal 30-35 bases making him valuable like always in that regard with 100 runs, but the HR and RBI and avg will drop like flies.

i would be looking to get a real second basemen like soriano in some sord of package trade if u can.

Roberts and some1 for Soriano

Roberts for Kent

or i u think giles can stay healthy
roberts for giles

If you got Willis after round 10 in your draft, I think you be thrilled at what you got with that pick and not sell high. Right the D-Train!

Totally agree this is the real Beckett we have been expecting.

Brian Roberts & Willis.

Lump me in with the pro-Becket camp. It's not like this was not expected out of him for quite some time.

I don't know, but Roberts seems like the guy everyone is going to sell high on, and be sorry. I mean, he'll probably hit 12-15 HR. 60 RBI. 100-110 R was pretty much given, and 30 steals too. He hit a lot of doubles last year, and they are turning into home runs. Even if he bats .280, thats about as good as Giles, and he has the chance to hit better than .280.

Not all doubles hitters turn into home run hitters. The 15 is a bit of a reach for him. I know how much he has already, but I would be surprised if he was to double that amount. There is not much evidence to support his continued power spike. Not a .300 ba, I might add. Plus let's recall that after the break last year, he only stole 4 bases.

Probably no buyers though. But there are some rookies out there.
