Fio Gone

The Orioles have added another candidate for center field, buying the contract of outfielder Chris Roberson from the Philadelphia Phillies today.

Roberson, 28, is a speedy switch-hitter with little power who spent most of 2007 with the Phillies' Triple-A team in Ottawa, where he hit .266 with four homers and 19 stolen bases in 113 games.

Roberson batted .286 (eight hits in 28 at-bats) in two major-league callups spanning 28 games with the Phillies last season and is a career .232 hitter in 69 big-league at-bats. The Phillies designated him for assignment last month.

I would rather keep Fio but whatever, both players suck. Not sure what this new dude brings that Tike doesn't.  I guess the O's wanted some extra options for CF.
