AL 4, NL 3: Adam Jones, Son!

New, 209 comments

Despite the fact that the camera panned to Derek Jeter in the dugout every four seconds, last night's all star game was thoroughly satisfying as an Adam Jones fan. Adam played right field and made a few good looking catches out there. He went 0-2 but drove both balls into right field with enough force to get me a little excited. The second fly ball came with Curtis Granderson at third base and the game tied 3-3. Granderson scored easily and Adam Jones was credited with the game winning RBI. That's our baseball player! Game MVP went to Carl Crawford for making a great over the wall catch to rob Brad Hawpe of a home run and save Jonathan Papelbon's behind. It was a decent choice for MVP, I suppose, but Adam Jones is still MVP of my heart.
