After a disappointing loss in Sunday’s finale against the Minnesota Twins, Adam Jones is eager for the first of 18 meetings with the Boston Red Sox. According to Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe, Jones told Orioles reporters that he’s kept a watchful eye on Boston’s early season successes.
“You’ve seen the last couple days, you look on the scoreboard today. They had 13 runs and they put them up quick, too. I think they are swinging the bats. We’ve got to go out there … and spoil their Opening Day.”
That Fenway will be sold out matters not to Jones.
“The more people, the more you want to shut them up. That’s how I look at it. I don’t care, they can stand up the whole game. They do anyway. But when you can silence 40,000 people, it’s pretty cool,” he said.
AJ’s bat alone has a good chance of silencing the crowds hat Fenway. Jones has four straight multi-hit games, one shy of his career high.
