Hey, last night sucked. Again. But Brian Roberts didn't, so let's talk about that guy for a minute.
Season totals? .327/.421/.439.
He leads all AL 2nd basemen in VORP, runs, hits, walks, stolen bases, and OBP. He ranks 2nd in OPS and 3rd in batting average.
Amongst all AL hitters?
12th in BA
7th in OBP
4th in BB
1st in SB
He is having a terrific season despite his slow start and frankly, he wears the hell out of some baseball pants - the importance of which cannot be overlooked.
