Eh, I don't really have a problem with him. I agree with the others that say if he was a Giant we'd be OK with him. I didn't hear too many people complaining last year when Ross would do his hop after hitting a bomb. Honest question for everyone complaining... did you complain about Ross last season? If the answer is no, then why not?
Roberts plays with a little flair, some of it I could do without, but he also plays the game hard. He's obviously competitive but I'd appreciate that if he wore black and orange. He's not along the lines of Nyjer Morgan. Now that guy is a tool. Roberts seems like a good guy that just plays with a lot of fire. If our pitchers don't like it they should do a better job of getting him out. People may not like it but it's true.
ok. Last post on this. "Did you get mad at Ross for his bat flip-hop? ".
1. When he did it vs. Cain as a Marlin? Yes. He did that hop with a stare at Cain. Not ok. Roberts was similar today. Actually 3x worse.
2. I like players that get pumped up. Pablo does it. It's the WAY Roberts looks when he does it. It's like he's saying "yeah bítch, what now?" There is a difference when Roberts gets psyched.
3. Read Neheater post in this same thread about Romo vs.Roberts game last year. I remember that game and hated him since. Trust me that guy is a púnk.
To each his own I guess on this topic.
"when he hit his double last night, he did a little six shooter action...in other words, being a d-bag "
I have to say that kind of BS really is childish... but Ryan will grow up some day.
LOL, you would be MORE than just "OK" with him. You guys are funny.
Yeah, their posts were beyond classless. ONe said he defended Ryan Roberts and then called Buster gutless, saying every team is going to take advantage of his fear at defending home plate. I posted the following:
Ryan Roberts 31 yrs old drafted in the 18th round. Career stats:
310 games 223 hits 47 doubles 30 hr 104 rbi .412 slugging OBP .336 OPS .748
Buster Posey 25 yrs old drafted in the 1st round (5th pick)
164 games 176 hits 28 doubles 28 hr 90 rbi .464 slugging OBP .355 OPS .819
Tats: Roberts --over 100 !Posey-- zero
Ryan Roberts will have more tats but otherwise be long forgotten about when Buster is still in the prime of his career.
