Is Adam Jones focused too much on being a celebrity this year?

He hasn't been awful so far. But with his talent he should be better. The swinging at bad pitches is what it is at this point. But it seems he's doing a lot more talking and doing the mlb shows this year. Is AJ focused enough in everyone's opinion?

So you think he shouldn't be better than he is? For 80m I expect more than a sub .800 OPS.

If you are squawking about anyone 10 games into the season, I think it best to allow things to warm up, and percolate. As it were.

Are you insinuating that he would be a better player if he gave less interviews? I'm not really sure what you think he might need to be doing better. His plate approach and whatever else he needs to improve has basically nothing to do with image. Chris Davis has also looked pretty stupid in a lot of at bats this year and hasn't said anything interesting, either.

Well, his stats in 10 games lines up with his career numbers. So I guess my point isn't valid. He is what he is. A sub .800 OPS player.

No. You are again wrong. He is what he is in one 16th of the season. We don't know what he will be the rest of the year. Hopefully one of the top 15 offensive players in the league. Sounds like you make be trying to make a point? What is it?

I could go into small sample sizes and the whole thing about 28 year olds usually being better than they were at 21 and it's the middle of April and etc.

I could do these things.

How can you say im wrong then? You don't know how he will be the rest of the year either. His track record is that he's a sub .800 OPS player. Thats not good for our #4 hitter. Thats my point. Markakis gets blasted for being a disappointment.

No one said he had a big head. Making stupid comments to the media doesn't equal a big head.

Fair enough.

I think as far as statistics go, how well he will play this year is more likely to be indicated by more recent years than the years before them.

Also on BBRef he's been worth 0.4 WAR so far. He's on pace for 6.4 WAR which is like a $35 million player.
