If you didn't see it, it was ugly. Roberts covered first base and Bubba Crosby plowed him. It happens, but it still sucks. That's it for Roberts this season.
Brian tailed off this year (how couldn't he?) but he still had a damn fine season, and both he and Oriole fans can be proud of what he did this year, jumping into the upper echelon of major league second basemen. The man is also a gamer, showed up everyday and did his damnedest to ride out his slumps.
