New Comments from Roberts in Roch's latest Blog.


Recommended Posts


Roberts was pretty vague, never offering specifics about how he felt. He isn't hitting, but he said he never starts swinging a bat this early. Asked if he'd be ready to play if spring training started today, Roberts chuckled and said he never would have been ready on Dec. 13 in previous years.

"I'm feeling OK, I'm feeling fine," he said. "Just taking it day-by-day. One day at a time."

Roberts told a reporter from Sun magazine earlier this offseason that he hadn't experienced any headaches in two weeks. Reminded of his optimism back then, Roberts said, "I'm taking it one day at a time. Seriously, I'm not just saying that. That's just where my life is right now. I feel like that's the best way to handle it. I can't look three months from now and I can't look three months back. I can take today and I can take this week and I'm very focused on what I'm trying to accomplish and what I'm doing. It's really all I can look at at this point."

Asked what his workout routine is like, Roberts said, "I'm just day-by-day, try to do a little bit more. At this point, I'm just taking it slow and trying to get better every day."

Maybe it's just me, but do these comments worry anyone else? They don't seem as positive/hopeful as the ones he made a couple of weeks ago. Maybe I'm just overreacting here and Roberts just wants to take it easy and not make any predictions about if/when he can return in case he can't meet them. If we are going to have any kind of shot at finishing above .500 next year a healthy and productive BRob would certainly help.

I'll be surprised if he is ever a productive major leaguer again. I think that ship has sailed and hopefully Roberts will retire is he's unable to play by February. I hope I'm wrong because I'd love to have a healthy Roberts in our lineup, but clearly those comments indicate things are not where he would like them to be.

25 years ago how many atheletes lost a ton of time over concusions? I don't remember too many. Now guys being out for a year isn't rare. I wonder if some of these guys are just suffering from anxiety.

Yeah he should just ignore modern day medical science, play through it, and risk his life like they did back in the day. That's what real men are made of.
