Would You Trade Adam Jones For …….?

Is Harper being groomed for CF? I was under the impression that he was going to be a corner outfielder. Bernandina seems to be the logical fit for them in CF going out of ST.

I can see that happening too, but IF the Nats have a BIG spring and the Phillies have some problems I can see Washington decide to go for it.

What really works in our favor is the fact that three of the teams that NEED a RH bat or CF and match up best with us are in the same division. If Atlanta or Miami start making a play for Jones, the Nats may jump just to keep him away from the other two. We would be the winner in that war.

no, when he gets called up he will play Right Field. The plan is too have him play right and slide Werth over to center.

I'm happy and I'm happier the Orioles realized they needed Adam and that he wanted to stay.
