In part eleven of my (hopefully) 52 part series, Better Know a 2012 Oriole, I take a look at Adam Jones… the fightin' break-out star (sorta)!
"'Adam Jones. Above average hitter despite plate discipline issues. Gold Glove center-fielder, even though the defensive stats don't like him. Team leader, who entered the season only 26 years old and approaching free agency. Jones may not have quite lived up to the expectation some had of him when he was acquired from the Mariners for Erik Bedard* in previous seasons, but he sure made up for some of that with how he started the 2012 season.."
