Has anyone else heard the Orioles and Adam Jones are working on a 3 Year Extension?

Has anyone heard this or has this been talked about before? I heard this through someone else. I can't find anything on it.


If anyone would know, they would be here.

They have to be.

No I have not.  But I think Adam will want to know that Buck is re-signing before he commits.

Jones saw how tough it was for Alvarez and Bautista and Encarnacion and Trumbo.

Jones is not a one-dimensional player.   He may not be a plus CF by the time his contract expires (arguably he's not one now), but he brings multiple skills.

I don't think it's necessarily a bad idea, but it's a bad idea to make that commitment right now.     

A deal would probably be for more money than what his current market value is.  You would also be locking in his age 33-35 seasons.

It might not be disastrous but it is very unlikely to be an efficient use of resources.

    • Sounds like you're making an argument for Frazier?  A ball in play is better than a K for hitters too! Wily vets and junk-ballers have been around for ages.  Their success/failure is about the quality of contact.  A ball in play (i.e. the strength of Frazier) is out of the pitcher's control.  So everything leading up to the point of contact matters:  pitch mix, hitter's anticipation/approach, release point, speed/movement, angle of approach, hitter's swing path and timing, defensive positioning...  Many more variables that have to line up for a low-K rate pitcher. There's more than one path to success.
    • There is zero evidence that says, if you get more Ks you throw more pitches. We have seen tons of starts where pitchers get lots of Ks and have their pitch count be efficient. Pitch count generally rises because of baserunners. The less outs you get, the more baserunners you have, the more pitches you throw. Now, as with any rule, there are always exceptions but saying pitching to contact leads to a lower pitch count is factually wrong. Means has been pitching to contact since he was brought up and he threw a lot of pitches and only made it through 5.  
    • Ok,  Grayson on Thursday vs Means on Saturday  
    • 100% agree about the weather.its too cold in march. some fans live in florida or down south/out west where its spring most of the year.maybe climate change will fix it in the future
    • Wow. Two starts. That proves what exactly? It wasn't even against the same opponent. Why not just bring up a Nolan Ryan game from the 60's?
    • You are the one making the claim. Shouldn't it fall upon you to provide evidence? We've been over this before. You post opinion as fact and get defensive when I question you. I politely asked for you to provide evidence for something you stated as a fact. I wasn't rude about it, I even included a helpful tip for you to improve the grammar of your posts. I don't think the actual evidence supports your claim.  I think a lack of swing and miss is going to lead to extended at bats which will cause the overall total number of pitches to be similar.  But that's just an opinion.
