Is Adam Jones the best CF in Orioles history ? Better than Blair?

We'll never know how good Paul Blair could have been offensively because he was never the same after being beaned by Ken Tatum in 1970.   Defensively, NO ONE was or is better than Blair.  One of the greatest in the history of the game.  I feel sorry for fans who never got to see him play.

It's nice that Pearce can hit righties now.  Hope that lasts.

Hey Hardy finally hit a home run.  Pretty funny that they all ignored him in the dugout.

I never got to see him play. but when I made up my all time O's team, I gave him CF based on the stories that Palmer, Brooks, etc all shared.

Pearce has earned a spot in the everyday lineup. He's making a big difference with this offense even if we sacrifice some defense in the process. This team needs to hit to win.

the nice thing is, they aren't sacrificing any defense. but this is a carbon copy of what Buck did with Nate McLouth and Valencia. he had those 2 guys platooning or barely getting any ABs at all because of his unwavering dedication to the lefty-right match up.

I've been saying for two years that we need more run producers in the lineup even if it means sacrificing some defense. I'm convinced that we can win if we hit even with the pitching staying the same. That being said Pearce is not a defensive liability but Lough should never see playing time over him like Buck likes to do. Cruz, Young and Pearce should rotate between left and DH everyday with Lough being a late defensive replacement and pinch runner. This offense is better with Pearce playing right now.

Lough is definitely better in the field than Pearce. I don't think this like McLouth/Valencia. Pearce is getting starts against righty pitchers.

Not really. The O's need more guys that can get on base and put pressure on the pitcher and the defense. Lough's make up was just that - who knew he was going to be such a bad hitter?

You said not really then you went on to say exactly what I said. Run producers do whatever it takes to score runs whether it be bunt, steal, hit for avg., hit HR's, etc.

A good example is what Pearce is doing right now.
