Some milestones Adam Jones is likely to pass in 2017

Recommended Posts

Adam Jones is getting pretty high up there on some of the Orioles' all-time lists.    In 2017, he's likely to do the following:

1.  Move past Brian Roberts, Nick Markakis, Al Bumbry and Ken Singleton into 8th place on the list of games played for the Orioles.

2.  Move past Brady Anderson and Ken Singleton into 5th place on the list of RBI for the Orioles.

3.  Pass Rafael Palmeiro and move into 5th place on the Orioles' all-time HR list.

4.  Move past Nick Markakis, Al Bumbry, Boog Powell and Brian Roberts into 5th on the list of runs scored for the Orioles.

5.  Move past Boog Powell and Melvin Mora into 8th place on the list of doubles hit for the Orioles.

6.  Move past Brian Roberts, Nick Markakis, Paul Blair and Mark Belanger into 6th on the list of most at bats for the Orioles.

7.  Move past Brian Roberts, Ken Singleton, Nick Markakis and Boog Powell into 5th on the Orioles' all-time hit list.    He could also pass Brady Anderson to move into 4th (would need 167 hits for that).  

It's kind of amazing to contemplate that Jones is in such rarified air on the Orioles' all-time lists.

You forgot one:

8. Move past all the above mentioned former Orioles for swinging at pitches out of the strike zone :)  No, seriously, he has been a great Oriole and made the Bedard trade one of the best in our history.

Gotta love AJ.  He's the one player we've done everything right with.  Got him in the Bedard trade over other options.  Plus he's the one guy we actually extended before FA.  Hardy was a different situation.

He's a very good player and truly glad that we have him, I really enjoy his competitive nature. But his inability to leave alone the low and away slider kills me a little every time.

AJ has been a joy to watch (well ok, not always when in the batters box), but overall one of my favorite Orioles.  I do hope he signs an extension (short) past 2018 and gracefully accepts moving to RF, wishful thinking probably.

Sheesh, how good were Roberts and Markakis.  Such a shame that B-Rob never got to experience a winning O's team.  At least Nick had 2012 and 2014.

Good for A.J.  He's obviously not perfect, but overall we're pretty lucky to have him.

Nick left a team coming off an ALCS appearance to go and play for a team that was known to be rebuilding.  Jones took a team friendly deal in 2012 and has been our leader during all the winning.  Nick had made his money(65 million), he chose to leave a winner.  So that makes him a ...

I remember the days where we debated Jones vs Pie.  We all know now how that turned out for the better.  Love you Jones, what a great Oriole!

BRob was on the 2012-13 Orioles, though he only played a little in 2012 and wasn't healthy for the playoffs.

Yeah, I do remember him in the dugout during '12 now that you mention it, but as you said, he was pretty much done as a player.

He was tremendously bad when he did play.

-1.1 (rWAR fWAR) in only 17 games.  If he hadn't have been re-injured he might have sabotaged the season.
