And Another Thing

Brian Roberts hit his 50th double of the season yesterday. Are you kidding me? He has 50 doubles. Meanwhile Curtis Granderson has 52 extra base hits--TOTAL. Miguel Cabrera, the team leader with 59 XBHs, is the only other player with more than 50. The radio on the way to work told me that the only other players to have hit for 50 doubles three times or more in their careers were Hall of Famers Tris Speaker, Paul Waner and Stan Musial. That is certainly some elite company.

Consider that the end of my random musings for the moment. I meant to include that in today's earlier ramblings but forgot. Now back to regularly scheduled programming.


  1. Yeah, Roberts seems to be a lot better than everyone gives him credit for. 50 doubles is quite the accomplishment.

  2. i like Brian Roberts a lot even if he is in the AL East. Great player.
