Quite possibly the most exciting part of what has been a relatively boring offseason for Orioles fans were the trade rumors linked to star center fielder Adam Jones.

At one time it seemed that Jones definitely wouldn’t be wearing the new cartoon bird hat in Baltimore this season as he seemed to be linked to a deal that would send him to Atlanta for Jair Jurrjens and Martin Prado.  While Jones is the probably the face of the franchise, I don’t think Baltimore has anyone on their roster that is untouchable.

Throughout the rumors, Jones stayed positive to his fans on Twitter.  Many have wondered if he has a desire to stay in Baltimore when his contract expires at the end of next season.

“I’m so hungry to win for Bmore,” Jones tweeted on Thursday.  “I’ll even try the damn crab cakes.”

Jones explained that he had crab cakes in 2006, but that he didn’t like them.  He added that he’s willing to give it another try.
