BRIAN ROBERTS RUMORS

New York Yankees Officially Release Second Baseman Brian Roberts

Second baseman Brian Roberts’ time in New York is over. The Yankees released Roberts before Saturday’s game against the Cleveland Indians. Roberts was designated for assignment on July 31 when the Yankees acquired Stephen Drew from the Boston Red Sox, shifting Drew from shortstop to second base. Roberts emerged as one of baseball’s best second baseman in the mid-2000s with...

Yankeetorial: As they make the final turn, the Yankees need players, not contracts

I spent July whining about Brian Roberts, which was like mocking a lawn flamingo. I hated myself. Roberts is a nice fellow whose body simply ran out of baseball games, in the same gasping, wheezing way that a keg runs out of beer. The Yankees' biggest improvement was to release him and try someone new. But they couldn't: There was that contract. We were paying him so much...

The Master absolutely loves what Brian Roberts brings to this emerging Yankee ballclub

Last night, after Brian Roberts notched his second base hit, Suzyn Waldman felt inspired enough to do some napkin math on his batting average. "He's now up to .252!" she exclaimed, as if calling the winning Powerball number, and John gave one of his all-knowing, God-is-good, chuckles. With a five-run lead, a bolt of pure human joy resounded over the Yankee Radio Network...

What If Brian Roberts Stayed Healthy?

Brian Roberts has had a rash of injuries over the past 4 years and, as a result, hasn’t played more than 77 games since 2009. So if history means anything, there is a good chance Roberts misses significant playing time in his 2014 campaign with the Yankees. But what if - and this is of course a big if - what if Roberts were to stay healthy all season? What would that mean...

New York Yankees fill their lineup

A few days ago, I wrote about how the New York Yankees needed to address their second base situation for the first time in nine seasons. I talked about how the Yankees can’t afford to go into the season with Kelly Johnson as their everyday second baseman. Brian Roberts should provide some type of production at the 2B position (Derick E. Hingle – USA TODAY Sports) After losing...

Rely on Brian Roberts? Or will the Baltimore Orioles seek an upgrade?

(Derick E. Hingle – USA TODAY Sports) The Baltimore Orioles addressed one of their needs earlier this week when they acquired starting pitcher Scott Feldman from the Chicago Cubs. What other moves could the Orioles make to bolster their roster? Perhaps the weakest spot in the Baltimore lineup is second base. The name Brian Roberts might as well have been printed in the leadoff...

Three hundred and ninety-two days after he last suited up for the Baltimore Orioles, second baseman Brian Roberts is finally expected back on the field at Oriole Park at Camden Yards tonight.
