Orioles centerfielder — and 2009 All-Star! — Adam Jones is having a rough April. His team is off to its worst start in 20-plus years and he’s hitting like a pitcher, which is similar to how he hit in the second half of last season.
Adam Jones also has a Twitter account. Given the circumstances, that may not be the best idea. For example, this morning he unleashed the following on his Twitter following:
its time i catch fire. hasnt been the most productive month but still playing my azz off like usual.
funny how people thinks its easy from the stands.
i wanna hold a small clinic where i have people meet me at camden, i take them into the cage and throw bp. who think they can hit?????
If it happens, I’d like to show up for that clinic. Not because I think I can hit, no, but because I’d like to remind Adam that he’s the one being paid to hit, and those in the stands are the ones paying to yell at him when he doesn’t.
