He hasn't been run out of town yet?  I think he did something good today.

He made two nice defensive plays today.   One a strong turn on a DP, the other a nice throw after charging a slow hopper up the middle.

The charge and throw was very good. On the double play, he made a nice turn but his throw seemed weak.

Really?   I didn’t think so.   I’ve called out at least one other weak throw he’s made but I thought that one looked good.

He hasn't done well, but I do think there's talent there - just not sure he's going to get there.  He's gotta make some adjustments to stay in the majors on offense.  He's got a quick bat, but he needs to figure out hitting breaking balls and going to the opposite field on pitches on the outer half of the plate.  I'm guessing his failure to adjust was why he was slumping badly in AAA and not hitting now.  And it might turn out that he can't adjust.

He looks raw still, and he only just turned 24. I would let him and Mateo battle it out for 2B next year, with the loser being the utility man.

I'm not sure what use a utility IF is who can only play 2B.  Jones IMO is either the starting 2B or he's going back to Norfolk.

I’d rather Jones be playing everyday in AAA versus being a UTIL guy next year with the big club, but we are starting to have our legit prospects reach AAA. Vavra will be the AAA 2B next year. He’s legit. The OF will be crowded for Jones to even get ABs in COF. 
 

Obviously we will hang on to Jones, but he needs to produce and produce fast.

Yes exactly. Plus, I think Urias is more a 2B than anything else. I’d like to see us acquire an actual SS or 3B in the offseason.

I think we’ll look to bring back either Iglesias or Galvis this offseason to provide stability at SS. Urias and Mateo can man 2nd and 3rd base. Jones could earn his way into the mix, but hasn’t so far. Vavra is going to be knocking at the door for 2B next year. 
 

Correa would be nice, but we’re still two years away. You can’t pay a player $60mm over 2 years when you’re not going to be competitive. That’s a waste.

It would be great to bring back either. I hope they’d still want to return after getting traded to potential playoff teams. 
 

Agree about Correa. Plus it’s unlikely he’d have any interest in coming to Baltimore.

    • Yeah, so I’ve held off telling the story about my interaction w/ Jones, but he’s no longer an Oriole, so.... I posted years ago about a hitting clinic he held at SDSU w/ Harold Reynolds. It was a fun time for me and my daughters taking a road trip from Los Angeles.  After the clinic was over we, of course, went to see about getting something signed or a picture. We waited patiently as he signed for a number of people and then I approached him to get a picture of him and my girls. He started to lineup to do so and then balked at the idea, saying it would take too much time, at which the expressions of my kids faces visibly dropped. Disappointing to say the least, but I explained it away with some such fatherly bs.  I never mentioned it in the thread about our trip because I knew there would likely be disbelief or outright anger for me calling out an Oriole player, especially Jones. After all these years, it wasn't a huge deal, but yes, I lost respect for him. As far as I know, Palmer has always been great with not only fans, but going out of his way to be available for them. There’s also no one else I’d rather listen to call a game than Jim Palmer. His stories are part of that.
    • Well Machado should’ve been dealt the offseason before but somehow we were still going for it with a team that actually won 47 games. The only thing bad I could say about what DD did in the Machado trade, is that he should’ve gotten more A ball players versus trying to get players that were closer to being ready. However, The Dodgers had just spent $50+ million on Diaz, Pop was 20, and Kremer was leading all of milb in SO. 
    • Unless the CBA changes there is zero incentive to call up AR before June 1. It’s not like another 60 days of “bad” PR is going to hurt this franchise any more. 
    • Oh, absolutely.   The O’s were leading the division by six games when this news broke.   It stung pretty badly to lose Manny in that situation.   As it turns out, the team played well without him for the rest of the regular season.   But we’ll always wonder if he could have made a difference in that KC series, if he’d managed to rehab and return to the field.     Some posters faulted him for not acceding to the team’s wishes.   Not me though.  
    • Win 3 Cy Youngs, 3 World Series and a WS game in 3 decades and you can be as arrogant as you want.   Palmer rules.
    • So trade our best performing position player in order to get prospects that don’t usually pan out… i.e Machado deal  Pass
