Roberts Back, About Last Night, Gonzalez and Ejections

Over the past week, Brian Roberts has been itching to play -- now he's back and off the sixty day disabled list. In a corresponding move, the team has designated Scott Moore for assignment. The 2010 season is pretty much a bust, but it will be finally good to see a healthy Brian Roberts back in the fold.

There's no way to know how Roberts will hold up throughout the rest of the season, but I'd imagine the team will give him more days off and be cautious with the way they treat him. It would not surprise me either if he ended back up on the DL with the same injury.

Moving on...

It was interesting to see Mike Gonzalez back on the mound Thursday in his first game action since Opening Day in Baltimore. It's pretty obvious that the reliever was pitching hurt and had some issues going on with him. Now, his outing against the Twins was nothing pretty - 2/3 of an inning, a walk and a hit - but he got out of trouble in the seventh inning and wasn't booed of the mound.

Hopefully, he can build upon his night.

And Millwood ... what a struggle to seem on the mound these days. I don't know what to think. Part of me knows that he's a professional and tries to get out there to win; however, do I get the feeling might he be might beat down by the losing, despite being classy about the situation he's in?
