Wow,not a good idea to challenge the fans like this. I think he is a pro player. I can challenge him at my job but he would fail,too. I wonder if his marketing and sales skills are good. We are going to have like an apprentice TV show?

I don't care about this but last night, during his interview, he mentioned how he gets texts from his mom during the game about slamming his helmet down, etc...

Now, it wasn't clear if he saw those texts during or after the game but if it was during, does anyone have a problem with the man checking his cell phone during the game? I know I sure as hell do.

What do you expect? He's one of the whipping boys this year. A couple of people start saying he's an egomaniac and pretty soon others jump on the bandwagon, no matter how unfounded it is.

The guy could rescue 100 orphans from a burning orphanage and people would say he just did it for recognition or something.

He's not having a great start to the season. He hasn't been great since the first half of last season. He's got a lot of things to work on. I get it. But all of this ego crap and people saying he doesn't care and that he's nonchalant and that his AS/GG awards have gone to his head...it's just stupid.

He's becoming more and more like Willie Mays Hays from Major League 2 everyday. Hey Adam, why don't you put in some more time in the cage by yourself. Or better yet get a hit when the lights are turned on.

Runs like Mays but hits like sh**

I think it did go to his head a little. The slump actually might be the best thing for him. I think he is trying to adjust now. He has swung the bat pretty well the last two night.

Again, we are going to ignore ALL the other posts huh? I mean we are going to ignore all the positive posts huh?

Moreover, his twitter isn't "locked" I am looking at it right now, but you can only view it of AJ friends you. Which means that the blogger who can't read it DIDN'T read it - it was sent to him.

Moreover, that "easy from the stands" comment is nowhere to be found, on his page.

People are just looking for an excuse now.

I kinda had the same feeling. In all of the dugouts I've been in (college, showcase, minors) you wouldn't dare pick up a cellphone.

I guess it's different at the top. Don't know.

Ditto on this. Of course he's off to a terrible start, but the Jones as OH scapegoat has gotten ridiculous, laughable, and just plain stupid. There are literally around 5 new threads a day about his "ego."

Personally, I have zero problems with his attitude. His at-bats on a whole have looked much better the last two games and hopefully it's a sign of him moving out of whatever habits have plagued him during his struggles. We need him to succeed if we want to see improvement from the team.

He most likely isn't checking his phone during the game, but he probably gets the messages after the game in the locker room.

It might be that he gets them during the game but doesn't actually read them until after the game.

    • Twenty people believe there’s a trade before the season that changed the offseason? Hmm I said it when Elias was hired. Nothing of any significance will change until there’s new ownership.  Actually, I questioned his ability to perform his duties with the current ownership. I’m still waiting for an impact signing. However, I think they may have a chance with the young guys. Of course, that assumes a big season from Adley, Gunnar and GrayRod and it’s likely at least one of that group has growing pains.    I also hope Hall gets a real shot as a SP. Too many people didn’t recognize the strides he made in season and he’s always been a starter. His stint in the pen was useful, but that kid has electric stuff.  Don’t get me wrong, Elias has been ok, but how much could he do if they loosened the purse strings? Yes, I know, the Frazier signing, but how bout that Gibson guy!  
    • The biggest development of the season will be the sale of the team.
    • We will be fortunate if GRod has a sub 4 ERA. I don’t see him as any more important than the rest of the starters.  If he is ever a true ace (and the odds are against that), it won’t likely be in 2023. The biggest development to this year will be revolved around all the young players, not just one. Everything about this team and the future success of this organization hinges on them. 
    • I'd say that is a yes. https://www.mlb.com/glossary/transactions/service-time  
    • Unusual, in that Birds usually avoid both Fox and Wolf.
    • Why not keep Al and NL just make each have East and West Divisions. Al East is our current group plus Chicago WS and Cleveland plus an expansion in Charlotte-Nashville. AL west gets the rest NL east is that current group plus Chicago Cubs, Pittsburg, and Cincinnati. the west gets the rest plus an expansion in Vegas or wherever. You play your division 15 times (105 games) and the other division say 6 times (48 games). That gets you to 153, add a 3 game inter league to a close geographic rival (Gnats) you are at 156. Expand Playoffs so top 4 in each Division in. the top 2 advance to face the other geographic Division. league winners in WS
