Adam Jones Wins AL Gold Glove Award
We interrupt your regularly scheduled Ravens bellyaching to bring you breaking O’s news!
Hey, look at that! A Baltimore Oriole actually WON SOMETHING! Is it 2012, end of times, already?
Rawlings announced today that Orioles center fielder Adam Jones is one of this year’s American League Gold Glove Award recipients for defensive excellence in the outfield. The award, the first of Jones’ career, culminates a season in which the 24-year-old was also named to his first All-Star team and set new career-highs in nine offensive categories, including average, hits, runs and RBI.
Jones is the 13th overall Oriole and the first since Mike Mussina in 1999 to be named as a Gold Glove Award winner. He is only the second Orioles outfielder to win a Gold Glove, joining Paul Blair, who won the award eight times.
I guess the end of days prophecy of the Mayans doesn’t kick in until the TEAM wins something?
In all seriousness, Congratulations to Adam!
We Now Return you to your Ravens’ complaining, already in progress.
How about that little baby-faced kicker?! Bring back Stover! Why I oughta……!
