Adam Jones?

I think a definite maybe.He's not signed yet and mite agree to a 1-yr deal for $8 million-$10 million.I don't see any of their prospects beating down the door to Baltimore at the moment. The lot of them w/probably go back to the minors.And, while he's not gonna hit 30 homers, Jones does add leadership and a bit of sock to what w/probably be a so-so lineup at best.

Mancini, Hays, Stewart, Rickard, Mullins and Diaz are all beating down the door. Wasting 8 megabucks for an OF has to be the last thing on their minds. Show them a pitcher though....

I would pass on Jones too. His skills are declining, the money could be put to better use.

I lied about some of them. They have tailed off without my noticing. Too many bodies to keep track of.

At least two of Stewart, Hays and Diaz w/be sent down. Rickard's a fifth outfielder, and Mullins still must prove he can hit ML pitching. The "starting outfield" isn't that crowded.Jones w/play a lot in right or left early in the year and then sit more later on if the kids come up. He's have to understand this when he signs.

I've been given to understand that the market for such people is non-existent this year. Probably because a lot of years, the Orioles WERE the market. Rasmus, fer chisssakes?

Rasmus was a disaster from the beginning. They could get Jones on a 1-year for a few $million. I'd do it.

Santander is starting to get some attention. He just might hit his way onto the 25 man.

Why the hell not? The Rule V shortstop guy's making a case too. Martin, Marin, Mikezpen, whatever his name is.

Diaz has yet to draw a walk this spring. Probably why the Orioles traded for him.
