Does anyone know what's going on at 2B in Baltimore. I'm looking at picking up Brian Roberts as my backup (I've got D Relaford), but I'm not sure what's going to happen when Hairston Jr gets healthy. Will they split time, or does one or the other have the job. When in Hairston supposed to return?

Also. I was watching one of their spring training games on ESPN and saw an interview with their manager. He claimed their going to play a NL style ball, running at the top and bottom of the order, while letting Miggy, Raffy, and Javy swing away. Am I correct in assuming Roberts is going to lead off for them, and therefore should steal a couple bags?

Let me know what you've heard! I appreciate any help.

He'll be leading off and if he plays well while Hairston is hurt I think he'll keep the job. Roberts will get you lots of steals and if he gets on base a bunch of runs too. He just won't help you anywhere else.
