It did not have a whole lot of fanfare, what with the World Series coming soon and all, but former two-time All Star, Brian Roberts has announced that he will be retiring from Professional Baseball. Roberts entered the Major League ranks in 2001 with the Baltimore Orioles, a team he would play for in his next 13 seasons. Showcasing significant speed, Roberts swiped 185 bags, including an American League leading 50 in 2007. He would also lead the AL in Doubles twice, a feat achieved in 2004 and 2009. Playing Second Base for the bulk of his career, Roberts would be considered one of the better defensive infielders of his day, though not necessarily the elite in that regard. Roberts finishes his career with 1,527 career Hits, a Slash Line of .276/.347/.409 and a bWAR of 30.2. It is a good career, though one that is not likely to get the attention of the Baseball Hall of Fame. Saying that, the Baltimore Orioles have an extensive Hall, whereby we could easily see Roberts entering.
