  1. I think I’d rather take a chance on a kid on a streak like Everth Cabrera than trust these guys to be healthy enough to play well.

  2. Roberts is a gamer and very hungry after missing more than a year of baseball. I agree the SB totals will be down (due to concussions as well as some rust on the wheels) but I wouldn’t count out his bat.

    For leagues that use OBP it’s worth noting his extraordinary plate patience and willingness to take a walk.

  3. BRob will definitely hit more than 3 homers. Just last night, he was robbed of a home run by Alex Presley. The steals might not come, but Showalter has said the Roberts is chomping at the bit to run. Plus batting leadoff in a fairly potent Orioles offense combined with a good OBP should provide plenty of runs.

  4. I’ll take the over on 7 steals for Roberts. Not by much.. But I can see him getting 10. He’s still leading off..

  5. You also have to remember in ’11, Roberts was coming off an offseason herniated disk injury (which limited his Spring Training) and a season ending ’10 concussion. Either injury or both could’ve effected his early ’11 numbers, and his slide into 1st base in ’11 might’ve reaggrevated his previous concussions (if he still had lingering symptoms).

    If Roberts is truely healthy, I’ll take the ZIPS projections after missing 13 months of baseball, and anything exceeding it will be a bonus. If he returns to previous form or near it, it will be remarkable.
