WATCH: Orioles Adam Jones bare hands off the wall and nails Jose Reyes at third

  • David Whitlock

Outfield Gold Gloves are not given, but earned.  Baltimore Orioles OF Adam Jones flashed some serious defensive moxy at Toronto Blue Jays SS speedster Jose Reyes by limiting him to a double.  By limiting him to a double, I mean bare hand, off the wall, one hop, to Machado, tag down, you’re out. Sounds like a H-O-R-S-E shot.  Watch it all unfold (courtesy of MLB.com):

No question why the 28-year-old Jones already has two Gold Gloves in his closet, and is in line for a third on his way to many more.  The out in the first inning certainly was key in the Orioles 2-run victory to hang close in the American League Wild Card.

David Whitlock - manager

David (a.k.a. Longhorndave or lhd_on_sports) joined the staff late in the 2012 season and moved to Site Manager in early 2013. A lifelong Houston Astros fan (and mini-season ticket holder for 9 years) he attends 20+ games per year. A statistics freak, David still keeps score the "old fashioned way" on occasion (and has kept manual score of World Series games since 1986 and retains the sheets). He was a featured guest weekly on the Phil Naessens Show. He is also a Texas Longhorns alumnus and huge football and baseball fan of his alma mater. When he isn't watching or writing about baseball, he works as a contractor at NASA Johnson Space Center. He lives by the mantra "a bad day at the ballpark is better than a good day anywhere else."
