Thread: If Brian Roberts were healthy

If Brian Roberts were healthy
You know he is going to play. So
1)Do they DH him in an effort to not overwork him and possibly bring back symptoms?
2)Does he play 2b? If so, I assume Andino would be moved to 3b.

I hope they'd DH him. Andino and Hardy are really developing some chemistry together up the middle. I'd like to think that 'Dino has earned the position, but that's not really true considering it's BRob we're talking about. If we could get Roberts at the top of the order, then move JJ down to 5th or 6th depending on how Davis continues through the season, we'd have a seriously potent offense.
The question is, would we be better off with Roberts playing 2b, Andino at 3b, and having a revolving door at DH?

I think they should be DH'ing Reynolds and playing Andino at 2B.
I don't really think Roberts has a spot on this team anymore. Is he going to hit better than Reynolds at DH? I don't think he will.

I would platoon him with Reynolds. Andino plays 3B against righties and 2B against lefties.

Andino goes to third if he returns. There's no way they take Andino out of the lineup. Dude's a firecracker.

What about moving BRob to 3B and keeping Andino at 2B?

I fear that if Roberts made the same play Andino made in the 9th last night he'd wind up back on the DL.

I half expected this thread to say if he were healthy and playing the Orioles wouldn't be winning because they'd be absorbing his "loser mentality."
But more on to the topic, I cannot understand why anyone believes Robert Andino would make a passable 3rd baseman. He does not have the bat for the position, and he's settled in at 2nd nicely. The answer to 3rd base whether you like it or not is Reynolds until someone else is brought up or comes in.
