Brian Roberts primed for bounce-back
The Orioles continue to remake one of baseball's lousiest lineups, and Guerrero's presence and ability to smack southpaw pitching shouldn't hurt. They've made major offseason news by adding other names to their regurgitated Baltimore infield as well. Derrek Lee might not be capable of 25 home runs and 100 RBIs anymore -- he has accomplished these numbers just once since 2005 -- but I can see him coming close, being helpful for fantasy owners. Mark Reynolds was a top-10 fantasy option in 2009, and I wouldn't call him done at age 27, especially if he can hit .240 (baby steps, folks). And shortstop J.J. Hardy, for all the warts of the past two seasons, did hit 50 home runs combined in 2007 and 2008. He's certainly a 20-homer threat.
