07:00 AM ET 05.08 | O's second baseman Brian Roberts is coming along, but frustration may be setting in, too. [Roberts] is scheduled to visit specialist Daniel Cooper on Wednesday for further evaluation on his lingering right hamstring injury. Roberts, who suffered a ruptured tendon behind his right knee April 4 while sliding into second base, had resumed running, throwing and some light baseball activities last week, but he now wants to see a specialist. "He doesn't feel like it's moving at the pace he's hoping, so he wanted to see [Cooper]," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. ... Still, Showalter said he's optimistic that Roberts can avoid the 60-day disabled list. "We'll see if there's something else, but I'm not looking at it that way."

Still of of my favorite Orioles during those terrible 14 years of loosing. Not that he was with them the whole time but when he was healthily he was really fun to watch.

Two thing here Mr. Roberts- you are not as young as you whose to be and injuries take longer to heal, and 60 day is better than the Doc telling you that you are done.

It seems like this guy has been on the DL for about four years.

Call it a career dude. Your body is talking to you and it's telling you it can't do this anymore.

That's what I'm talking about!

Brian Roberts is done. Retire, dude. Tendons take longer to heal as you grow older (I speak from experience).

St. Louis (Lou-I) might be the best team in baseball. You must be ecstatic that they passed on Albert P.

They didnt exactly pass, they offered him $220 mio for 10 years, the Cardinals were just very, very lucky there was a sucker out there. And more lucky that Pujols, was a greedy SOB.

True.

Serendipty. I wish I was a Cardinals fan.

I get so sick of people calling Pujols a greedy sob... No one can say that if they were offered that much money in the current job that they are in that they would not take it in a heartbeat.... Give me a break !!!!

Someone may have called Pujols a greedy sob, but it wasn't me. Read the words please.

Pujols is talked about that way because he spent three years prior to his contract expiring preaching about how he just wanted to stay in STL and be on a winner. He was even quoted as saying that he didn't need to be the highest paid player in the game, just that he needed a good offer from the Cardinals and to be on a consistent winner. He got both of those things, and he still left.

If he hadn't gone out of his way so much to say it wasn't about the money, no one would have put much blame on him.
