Starting today, and continuing throughout the season, we will select a weekly Orioles Stud of the Week, the player with the best overall stats, or a single game, line, or defining moment so dominating we had to acknowledge it.
This week, fittingly, we select Orioles Gold Glove centerfielder Adam Jones. (Remember to #VoteAdam for the All-Star Game.)
Stud of the Week for May 21-May 27:
.355 average. 4 straight homeruns in the games from May 23 – May 26
3 for 5 with a homerun, a double, an RBI, and 2 runs in a loss against the Blue Jays on May 26th.
Chatted up a little boy in the stands on Sunday. Managed to keep up his active (and hilarious) tweeting schedule (@SimplyAJ10)—even tweeting photos of some gorgeous Copper River salmon on the hibachi grill. #StayHungry, indeed.
