Adam Jones Newsbeat

In slow market, Adam Jones’ free agency confounds former Orioles teammates: ‘Unfortunately, it’s where we’re at’ - Baltimore Sun

Adam Jones is one of my favorite players. From what I’ve read the reason he isn’t signed is that he’s holding out for a salary based on the player he was, rather than accepting a salary for the player he is. I hope he changes his mind.

“Unfortunately, it’s where we’re at,” outfielder/designated hitter Mark Trumbo said. “You’d think somebody with that kind of bulk and track record, especially with how much he brings in addition to the baseball side of it — it is kind of hard to wrap your head around this few opportunities. You hope for the best with everybody, and hope that if teams are not showing their hand yet, that you can give these guys a fighting chance to get a good spring camp in and hit the ground running, as opposed to waiting until you have a very small window to prepare.”

As Adam Jones likely nears final game with Orioles, he leaves a winning legacy — on and off field - Baltimore Sun

It will be interesting to see where one of my favorite players ends up. I fear he’s going to get squeezed this winter. Where’s his fit?
