Orioles’ free fall continues as Yankees complete sweep with 9-3 win - Baltimore Sun

Jones has the right attitude.

The Orioles dropped to 19-30 on the road this season with their ninth loss in their past 12 games away from Camden Yards. They couldn’t leave New York quick enough, looking to salvage their nine-game road trip with three games against the Tampa Bay Rays this weekend

“What else are you going to do, dwell on it? No man. That’s not good for sports,” said Orioles center fielder Adam Jones, who was 0-for-4 Thursday and 2-for-12 in the series. “It’s not good for your own [mentality]. So hey, we’ve lost three in a row before. Now let’s go down to Tampa and clean it up. … The series is over. That’s the good thing. Let’s get the hell out of New York and go down to Florida.”

Thursday’s loss dropped the Orioles a season-high seven games out of first place in the American League East.

“Nobody in the clubhouse [is] crying,” Jones said. “We got beat. It’s a very good team over there. Go to Tampa and do what we’ve gotta go. There’s [68] games left. Nobody’s crying, man.”

Some NL exec would start a team with Adam Jones over Mike Trout

The story: asking various executives which player they would choose to build a team around. Most execs chose Mike Trout or Clayton Kershaw, which makes sense. Some chose Andrew McCutchen, which, sure, why not? Others went with young prospects or decided that it was most important to build around certain positions like shortstop or catcher…

But there is one exec — a general manager no less! — who made a choice and a justification therefor which is impossible to get one’s head around:

“Adam Jones is a five-tool guy who comes to beat you every day and is a great leader,” an NL GM said of the Orioles’ center fielder. “I love Trout, but I just love Jones a little more.”
