The Orioles will need a face of the franchise – and de facto team leader, at least in the public eye – as they re-build and hope for a brighter future. I nominate Adam Jones.
Rule #1: A team leader must be quotable. And Jones sure is.
From Friday’s Sun:
“I’m just sitting back here, watching it and loving it. I’m letting Andy do what he came here to do,” Orioles center fielder Adam Jones said. “I’m letting him do his magic. He’s in charge for a reason. I like all three moves, to be honest with you.”
