Hairston Jr vs. Roberts

Postby Armed and Hammered » Tue Jul 20, 2004 4:23 pm

Would anyone take Hairston Jr. over Roberts for the rest of the year? Roberts has slowed down considerably but still gets the majority of starts in the leadoff spot. I did see Harston batted leadoff and Roberts ninth about 2 days ago but I think that was the first time all year. Anyone see that happening full time?

Now I see Roberts left the game with an 'undisclosed injury'. Anyone see it? If it is a hammy or leg injury I think I am droppin him for Hairston Jr. right now.

Someone just told me Hairston Jr. left the game w/ an injury also. Pretty much makes this post useless. :-t

Hairston just seemed a bit shaken up when he went flying into the wall...twisted his body somewhere. Doesn't seem all that serious.

I didn't get a good glance or listen at what happened to Roberts...I had one ear to the TV.

The game was a blowout, though early, for both injuries, and they didn't sound all that serious, to be honest.

This is a frustrating situation. Neither has really been stealing many bases lately (3 for Roberts over the last month, 2 for Hairston). I've been playing Hairston over Roberts because his batting average has been better:

Roberts: .257 for the season, .260 over the last month;
Hairston: .299 for the season, .264 over the last month;

Roberts was great until Hairston came back. Hairston gets moved up and down the lineup. I hate to say it, but the best thing that could probably happen for either of them is for the other to either get traded or go on the DL for the remainder of the season. Then they'd have some certainty about their role, and be able to get into a routine.
