Three in a row. Six out of seven. Ten out of thirteen.

We really need Brian Roberts back in the lineup. We just do not have a leadoff hitter without him. Even if you use Mora, who hits second then? Fahey or Patterson? Patterson is at least hitting lately.

Markakis had a couple of hits tonight and might be settling in. If HE could get on a little streak, he could hit leadoff. He works counts, which is more than you can say for Patterson.

A little more power anywhere in the lineup wouldn't hurt, either.
