Yesterday night in fourth inning of the Orioles-Red Sox game with two outs nobody on, Kevin “Youk” Youkillis came up and hit a deep screaming liner to right center field. Adam Jones raced back, leapt…… and HOME RUN! Wait, Jones caught it?! Jones robbed Youkillis of a Home Run!!! Camden Yards went crazy at the sight. The announcers on masn hd didn’t even know he had the ball. They thought it was a Home Run by Youkillis, until they saw Jones trotting casually off of the field. It was the best play I have seen an Oriole make in awhile. WOW!
And what a year Adam Jones has had. Let’s try FANTASY GOD! Many fantasy owners have treasured Jones because of his hot streaks, and his value in the league, one owner traded Jason Bay for Adam Jones! Now that is value! So let’s talk about Jones’ year so far in the MLB.
Jones has a .306 AVG, 12 HR, 44 RBI, 5 SB, and 50 R! He has been a huge contributor to the Orioles lineup and him and Brian Roberts are one of the best 1-2 punches (in my opinion) in the MLB. Hopefully Jones, Wieters, Roberts, and the gang can turn the (O)-ffense around! 🙂 thanks for your time go O’s!
