it truly is sad the way everyone player hates on BRob... all i can say is that i'm glad that i got him because he is making up the slack that was left by overpaying for the Superstar Todd Helton... <img src=/forums/images/smiles/kiss.gif> i bet everyone in here has there own story of which great player is killing them so please...let us enjoy BRob as being a savior to our fantasy teams for as long as it may last.

I watched the game last night and Roberts looked good on every at bat. I have a strong feeling he is about to go on a good streak.

What irks me here is that I start a thread attempting to have an intelligent discussion over what kind of second half numbers Roberts will produce, and it gets polluted by a whole bunch of idiotic posts by Roberts fanatics who feel they've been wronged when someone suggests that Roberts might actually underperform in the second half. Honestly, all I was looking for was some second half predictions. What I got was a whole load of self righteous BS from Frances about how "everyone has hated on Brob in the past". PLEASE. I predicted Roberts to have 5 home runs and 30 RBI after the break, and I'll eat those words if I have to. I was just interested in what other people thought. Forgive me if I look at Roberts' 12 career home runs (before 2005) and don't believe that this 5' 9" 150 pound second basemen can keep it up.
Also, I wish that the "declaring him dead" line can be canned. No one is declaring him dead. I am one of those who believes his power surge will cease in the second half. He'll still continue to rack up XBH, runs and SB's at a great rate and be a top 5 2B. I just don't believe he'll hit as many home runs. Stop overstating the argument just to serve your cause.

Pathetic that someone would have to resort to name calling. But really thats all these "doubters" have left -- just call people names, never own up to anything. Fraid your childish name-calling isn't gonna negate B-Robs homeritis though.

Go ahead, jump on his demise when he's injured and get annoyed when your called out. I stand by what i wrote before, stubborn people trying to hold onto their dignity cause they blew their mouths off and ignored the tell tale signs of a break out candidate. They've waited impatiently for his "dropoff" and it never comes so as soon as he gets an inury the lame calls for his demise come out. Well this is what you get for your impatience, dude.

But this year is nothing like his other two years!!!???!!! Its impossible!?!

It's nearly july and hes ripping dongers, time for "Roberts(reality) doubters"to update your dropoff regression point. Again. (Again again again again etc.)

I'm not going to say if I agree with you or not, but in one man's humble opinion this would be a better place if you would act like your username.

I've got the age over/under at 14. . .


I like to check in on the forums to see what other people think about certain guys. I just got Roberts in a trade, and was curious to see what opinions are. When I have to wade through a bunch of posts that look like they came from detention, it sucks. I'm pretty sure I'm not alone here.

Look. This may bug you, but nobody has a clue what Roberts is going to do the second half of the year. We all have opinions, but none of us know if this is a fluke or not. If someone has a different opinion than you, it doesn't mean anything but you disagree. Big deal. One day you will learn that it really doesn't matter, and you won't take it so personally.

I'm sorry if I was a bit harsh.
