The (Balitmore) Sun delivers the sad, but not unexpected news - Brian Roberts will be the Orioles' only All-Star in 2007:
Second baseman Brian Roberts was the only Orioles player selected to participate in the 2007 All-Star game in San Francisco.Should Bedard or Guthrie have made it? Hard to justify taking 2 or 3 players from a team 10 games below .500, isn't it?
Roberts' .327 batting average ranks second among American League second basemen, behind Detroit's Placido Polanco (.333).
Roberts leads the AL with 25 stolen bases. He posted a career-high 36 steals last season.
In addition to batting average and steals, Roberts leads the Orioles in several other offensive categories, including runs (50), triples (four) and hits (103).
This will be Roberts' second All-Star appearance. He also made the AL roster in 2005.
