Adam may want to manage but in the few years he has been away from MLB he has probably lost the real connections to key decision makers that might support him in his quest. The Orioles have completely turned over in regards to FO personnel and philosophy. He was only in AZ for a minute. Too much heat in his hometown of SD where they thought they were ready to win now.
He is not without a role here in Birdland however. Look at the big picture Adam. Job security and renewed status in a community that will love to have him back. A beloved institution just turned 76 a few days ago and while John Sterling forges on in NY doing PBP at 83, I think a third of a season of 76 year old Jim Palmer, a third of a season of Adam Jones and a third of a season of Ben McDonald doing color analysis on TV would be fantastic. They might even consider moving Ben back into radio color as he was very good in that role with Joe Angel.
Come on Adam ….. play the long game here, managers are just hired to get fired!
