I can't believe how many people didn't like Roberts this year. I had him ranked something like maybe 6th overall at second base. I drafted him in most of my leagues around the 12th round. While I am just as surprised as the next guy over his amazing start, he did not just come out of nowhere this year. In many of your leagues, he went undrafted? I guess I should have waited a few more rounds on him.

I took him in all of my leagues as my backup 2nd baseman.

I got him in the 13th, 16th, and the 19th rounds.

Now I'm trying to trade him, but I guess other people don't really have an idea what his true value is either. still an awesome pickup that late in the draft for a thin position. B-)

I must admit this red hot start has surprised me, especially the power. I drafted him this year in all but one of my 5 leagues and I got him in the 12/13th round every time and thought that was quite late.

Knowing that Hairston was leaving and that he would play everyday, leading off in a stacked lineup, I couldn't believe how lowly valued he was and thought I was missing something about him.

Very happy to see I wasn't :-)

If anyone is selling high on him, please report back to here what you got in return. I'm very interested to hear what he is worth.

He is worth a spot in your lineup and not your opponents!

Well, if you want to know, in one league, I sold high on Roberts, and basically swapped him for Kent.
