Yadier Molina demands apology for Adam Jones’ comments about WBC party plans

Team captain Yadier Molina wants United States outfielder Adam Jones to apologize to Puerto Rico’s players for saying they were planning a postgame party in San Juan before the World Baseball Classic championship game was even played.

Molina made his comments to ESPN’s Marly Rivera during Thursday’s parade in San Juan, less than a day after Jones told MLB Network that Puerto Rico’s postgame plans sounded a little premature and inspired the United States’ dominating 8-0 victory.

Players for Team USA said reports of a planned celebration for Puerto Rico’s team gave them motivation for the WBC final, but Puerto Rico said the celebration would have occurred, win or lose.
“Adam Jones ... is talking about things he doesn’t know about,” Molina told ESPN. “He really has to get informed because he shouldn’t have said those comments, let alone in public and mocking the way [preparations] were made.”

ESPN’s Glanville Says Playing Deeper In Center Field Would “Make A Difference” For Adam Jones

ESPN analyst/former MLB outfielder Doug Glanville was a guest on Glenn Clark Radio Tuesday.

-Would Adam Jones benefit defensively from playing deeper in center field?
-Is there any way that playing deeper could actually hurt him as Buck Showalter suggested?
-Even if he’s right in his comments, was Jones wrong to call out his teammates’ defensive abilities publicly?
-Do teams need to start treating outfield defense similarly to how they treat infield shifts?
-His thoughts on the Orioles in general at the beginning of Spring Training

Adam Jones: Orioles haven’t done enough this offseason to improve defense, athleticism in outfield - Baltimore Sun

Getting another CF and moving him to RF would have been a good start.

“We don’t need more offense,” Jones said. “I think we need to improve the outfield defense. And people are always going to say pitching, pitching, pitching, but I think we’ve got some damn good pitchers right now. They’re young, but they’re maturing. [Kevin] Gausman turned a page. [Dylan] Bundy increased his innings. I think we’ve got pretty good starting pitching. I think we just need to improve defensively in the outfield, just get more speed, more athleticism out there. …
