For all the people that said the Orioles should have moved on from Brian Roberts, have you watched him play?

Big sac fly in his first game, homer and great defensive play in his second game.

The reason they waited, and the reason he worked so hard is because the guy still has talent. He can still play baseball. We saw that in the first 3 games of the year and are seeing it now.

I have no idea if he can stay healthy and in the line-up, but that’s not the point. The Orioles aren’t just carrying him because they don’t want to eat his salary. He makes them better. He is better than Flaherty and Casilla.

You have to give Roberts credit for battling through these surgeries. I hope he can hang in there for a playoff run; he deserves it.
