Thi sis the biggest positive surprise fo the fantasy season. And by the looks of things, this is no weak MI getting lucky on a few HRs. I would venture to guess he keeps hitting with at least some power.
It's the warning track power combined with the new age contact lense and experience.
Think about having that 'just not enough power for a HR' all of your career and then suddenly being able to see the ball more clearly after a life of relatively blurred vision? I think that equals career highs in just about everything. He also put a little upper cut in his swing, (Beltran's_Boy or someone like that told me) which gives him the needed Edmonds like lift to hit HRs.
His G/F is less than 1.0 I think. It was pretty low last year also for a speedy guy like Roberts. As long as he maintains it, he will continue to get occasional HRs. While he hasn't hit a lot of HR's lately, he's still getting plenty of 2B.
