A guy in my league drafted Brian Roberts late in the draft and had a steal . . . for a few months. It's amazing how Roberts has regressed to his previous self, after spending the first half hitting like Albert Pujols:
Roberts, career stats before this season: .264/.328/.360, .688 OPS
Roberts, stats through July 4: .358/.434/.618, 1.052 OPS
Roberts, stats since July 4: .240/.319/.361, .680 OPS
Roberts' current season-long stats still look damn good: .309/.387/.511 but he's provided 2 months of trash and is still owned in 100% of leagues, according to ESPN.com.
Roger Angell: I was talking with Bob Gibson and I said: 'Are you always this competitive?' He said: 'Oh, I think so. I got a three-year old daughter, and I've played about 500 games of tic-tac-toe with her and she hasn't beat me yet.'
