Adam Jones, 2010 Topps Attax Code Card
Guess what? Adam Jones is on fire right now. Over the past seven games, he's collected 14 hits in 29 at-bats with one double, four home runs, and nine RBI. He's only struck out twice, and has a batting line of .483/.500/.931. He started the O's offense on the right foot last night with a first-inning solo homer off of Boston starter Jake Peavy, and it just so happened to be the 150th longball of Adam's career and the first of his three hits on the evening. With 147 of those home runs coming in an Orioles uniform, the incumbent center fielder is only four away from cracking the team's all-time top ten leaderboard. I think the Erik Bedard trade just might pan out for the orange and black.
I can remember playing with baseball cards as a toddler, but I actually started collecting them when I was ten. Now I'm an adult looking for an outlet to talk about my hobby without receiving blank stares in return. You can contact me thusly.
