I've always liked Adam Jones the ball player. Though ive never met him, I'm really starting to like the kind of person that he seems to be.

I love the way that he has jumped on the Ravens bandwagon, showing tons of civic pride. Then a few days ago on twitter, he talked about how much he liked living in Baltimore. Then, just a few minutes ago, I noticed that his twitter profile pic is of Earl Weaver, honoring Earl's legacy. Just seems to be a real classy dude.

Here's to hoping that he has a long, successful career in Baltimore. And I really hope he retires an Oriole.

He is becoming fully invested in Baltimore and Maryland.

Him and Buck. Adam's been calling Baltimore his home for awhile. Buck the other day at fan fest was talking about the Raven's. He said, "We(the ravens) have 3 picks in the top 100." And he was talking about how it hurts a team to trade away any draft picks in the top 100 of any draft. But he was talking like he was one of the coaches for the Ravens. Im glad to see the strong connection

Adam is the antithesis of Bedard, and both he and Tillman are cornerstones of a very bright future! Adam will hit over .300 with 30+ dingers in 2013 while Chris will chalk up 17+ wins as he establishes himself as the #1 righty on the '13 staff. That trade is already the second best in O's history and I fully expect it to supplant the Pappas/Robinson deal within the next 24 months.

Adam Jones gets it and I hope he rubs off on Wieters.

Now if he could only get a meaningful hit in the play offs. Not that we have to worry about that this coming season.

In theory, barring trades, doesn't EVERY NFL team have three picks in the top 100? Actually, the top 96.

that's a bold statemen. not impossible, but it's a tall order because Frank is part of the golden age legend. that's hard to surpass.

Wieters has already stated a 'desire' for a long term deal here.
Terrell Suggs is doing all that he can fan the flames on the Ravens’ feud with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Underneath his uniform, the linebacker/defensive end has been wearing a black t-shirt with the letters “YBYSA” on the front and the saying, “You Bet Your Sweet *** I Hate the Steelers” on the back.

"I saw it in a store, and I was like, 'Oh, that’s nice for camp. Get our minds right,'" Suggs said

He's been my favorite player on the team since I got his autograph as a rookie. Excited to see how his career unfolds.
The kids are alright.
