Go for D. Roberts. He's a started, while the two are questionable.

Umm....Brian Roberts is a starter. But Dave Roberts has the potential to match the others' three-day total in one game.

i dont know... figgy has a higher AB-steal ratio... if he played as much as roberts he would probably have more... he's batting .333 or so too... ya gotta get on base to steal

I would have to go for Dave Roberts. He already has like 12 stolen bases already. Especially if you are only needing him for a few days/games. He is much more likely to have a 3 to 4 steal night than the other two. Just my opinion,

I have Brian Roberts and have been very happy with him this week he has 2 steals in the last 2 days, I picked up figgins for an injection of steals until GA comes back, Dave Roberts is facing the mets and hit a homer last night so i would expect him to do something considering Mike Piazza couldnt throw out Cecil Fielder.

Expert Opinion: Theyre all good, id pick up Figgy for 2 weeks

Figgins is the fastest in terms of pure speed but Dave Roberts is more knowledgeable, the better base stealer.
Fantasy Baseball is GOOD for the game. Everyday is exciting; it makes following baseball a blast!

Brian Roberts' starting stint might be in question when Jerry Hairston, Jr. gets back from the DL. He was sidelined with a fractured finger and has been sent to the minors for a rehab stint. I don't think the O's are in any hurry to rush him back but they might trade either Hairston or Roberts depending on which one is having the better season. Hairston might have the upperhand in that regard. Roberts wasn't a prolific base stealer by anymeans in the minors and was kind of a surprise last season. Hairston, on the other hand, was leading the league in steals last year when he went out. He might be an injury problem though.

If you have to choose between those three I say definitely go with Dave Roberts. He plays almost everyday, and anytime he is on base he has the greenlight. He has a very high OBP as well which will help him get a lot more steals.
