AJ Reunion Tonight

Recommended Posts

Tonight marks our first game since 2007 where Adam Jones will be on the team opposing the Orioles.    Jones got off to a hot start this year, but has really been in a power drought the last two months, hitting only one homer in his last 34 games and none in his last 25.    What are the odds that he breaks out of that streak against the Orioles?   Probably pretty decent, given the Orioles’ propensity for giving up the long ball and Jones’ tendency for drama.    Anyway, it’ll be nice to get a look at our old friend.

He will do something noteworthy in this series, that is guaranteed. 

You would think we have a pretty good scouting report on the guy.  Why would we throw anything besides low and away sliders?? lol

You would have to get ahead in the count first for that to work. He doesn't swing at it until then.

Lot of good this link does us as it is behind a paywall. 

I think many here have that subscription. As well as the one to Orioles Hangout.
