Glenn Younes: Brian Roberts Not Playing, Not a Story
Wednesday we found out Brian Roberts was to have surgery on his hamstring which he injured in game 3 of 162 of this season, and yes another prolonged absence…. It’s Baltimore and baseball season so that’s headline news, no doubt. Should be top story in updates and surely a topic on twitter, Facebook, message boards and of course SPORTS TALK RADIO.
Not for me though, I could do it. Don’t want to do it, didn’t do it.
Brian Roberts, to date, has played in 118 games in the last 520 and counting. Aka I’m counting on NOTHING from him, he’s a non-thought, non- factor and the reason he wasn’t mentioned much in my show… He’s a non-story! Sad to say but this is the only way he’s a story, which is to explain why he’s not.
Flaherty or Casilla or second base in the future is a different topic or two, Brian Roberts is not! And the thing about it is, I don’t feel bad about it either. In a sport that prides itself on stats, these are overwhelming, 118 of 520 is bad even in a sport where failing in the norm.
