Although the Baltimore Orioles are 8 games under .500 and are not a fantasy force as a team, the offense does boast a trio of players that should be universally owned in all leagues.
These 3 men had a solid three game series against the Red Sox and if they were in your lineup over the weekend then you were handsomely rewarded:
-Brian Roberts, 2B: Roberts had 4 hits in the series including 2 doubles and 2 runs.
-Nick Markakis, OF: A draft day sleeper, Markakis also had 4 hits against the Sox. This included 2 RBI and a stolen base (his 15th on the season) in the 10th innings of Sunday’s finale.
-Miguel Tejada, SS: Some say his best days and his power are behind him. Tejada shook off those critics and apparently shook off his wrist injury from his most recent DL stint by hitting a game tying home run (#11 on the year) Sunday. It was Tejada’s third hit of the series and also his 4th RBI.
