    Your takes on Adam Jones' line this year...

    HR: 22
    RBI: 85
    Runs: 90
    SB: 25
    BA: .272

    Go ahead and listen to the Jones naysayers. I've followed him thru hs SEA days...they killed the kid...misused bigtime and probably set him back some so I ignore his Mariner numbers. I think he has a slight breakout season and will be the 20/20 threat he was always touted to be. And...that is someone who has watched Oriole games too! Playing in the East makes things tough but he will be fine...especially once they get some protection around him. Patience my friend!!

    • Jones was a pretty touted talent coming out of Seattle and the centerpiece of a trade involving Erik Bedard (coming off a Cy young caliber year). So the Os also thought pretty high of him. Last year was only his second full season and he is only 25. The reason i asked the question is becuase i did draft him and i think his upside is high. But, there are a couple O's homers in my league that love this guy. So the trade bait is high. I wanted to get your opinions becuase i wanted to know if i should keep this cat as my third OF or deal him. One guy has Carlos Gonzalez on his team and im sure i could get him in the deal. What do yall think of Cargon?
