The long, strange odyssey of Brian Roberts continues. On Sunday, the rehab tour of the Orioles' second baseman had him at Prince George's Stadium, one of those new-ish minor league ballparks that somehow manages to feel like something out of "Bull Durham" at the same time. (My favorite outfield sign juxtaposition: a Wawa billboard showing a huge sub sandwich stuffed with meat under an Anne Arundel Medical Center sign that says "These are the doctors you want." Wonder if one's a cardiologist?) In front of an announced 5,887, Roberts had himself a decent outing. He played seven innings and walked, struck out twice, doubled in a run and lined out to left for the Double-A Bowie Baysox in their 8-3 win over the Reading Phillies. He also looked smooth helping turn two double-plays.
