Brian Roberts lost a step?

Postby malibogsters » Sun Jun 13, 2010 1:03 am

An intelligent source reported: Brian Roberts – Given his third epidural. Betcha he wishes he chose natural childbirth. My guess is he’ll return in September for a few days just to mock his fantasy owners.

Tired of holding him in 5x5 full keeper thinking in 2011, a year after having sat out with back issues he isn't gonna have the stride to steal 30 bags and score 100 runs again at 33 (in October).

Neil Walker, Aviles and Guillen all 2B eligible for me and owned. Wondering if dropping Roberts and scoring Dustin Ackley is gonna pay off since I'm currently out of any chance to catch the top 5 place teams by year's end.

Thoughts, comments, rants...........

non-keeper is a no-brainer, but I would rather roll the dice on BRob in '11 than Ackley. I do like adding Ackley, and maybe you should post your full team to get options on who else you might dump.

Ike, Smoak and Ackley would be nice ... you really need Roberts (even if he is 80% his former self) more tho imo.

I'd lose Chapman before Roberts.
