His stats from May 18 (day after his last HR and RBI) to May 31 (last full game played before he went out):

12 games
16/47 (.340)
7 R
0 HR
0 RBI
0 SB
2 CS

Except for batting, I don't consider this "hot up until the injury". The point of this thread is that I'm missing all the other stuff that he provided so abundantly earlier in the season.

B-Rob hit .358 average and 1.0 OPS in May.

He can't control RBIS or RUNS. I think you're nitpicking.

;-D Exactly. He is back in the lineup now so we will see what he does in the next week or so and judge him off of that.

LOL, I think someone is getting defensive after non-stop butt kissing of Roberts. Where did all that 40-40 talk go?

I traded him high and you guys should of done the same. That #1 tag in Yahoo goes a long way to getting the players you want.

Roberts will be solid from here on out, but the honeymoon is over. :-P

He got injured and you're saying the rides over cause he hit .358 and 1.0 ops in May? Good for you.

He got injured thats what happened, hard to drill hrs and steal bases when your hurt.

Or maybe the 2 and a half month hot streak has ended and we can all expect a regression to the mean .270 avg. chuckle.

Watching the game. 1-2 with an RBI. Would have been 2 RBI but fat Ponson was at 2nd.

Like I said, he will be solid.

But to think he will be a top 10 or 20 player from here on out is very unlikely.

The best sell high period was a few weeks ago, that's all I'm saying. His stock was never higher, and never will be higher, then back then.

I was in the process of trading him for Johan Santana on the day he missed his first game. Obviously, that deal didn't happen :~( :~( :~( :~(
