Ridiculous minor league article of the day

Let’s hear it for the ridiculous minor league article of the day. Nothing like a little hype to get some fans ready for opening day of the minor league system, but this takes the hyperbole to another level. Comparing Adam Jones to Alex Rodriguez is, well, I don’t have words for how far off the mark it is. When talking to scouts about Alex Rodriguez as a high school player, the words “best I’ve ever seen” are common. Talk to the same scouts about Adam Jones, and you’ll hear things like “reach pick”, “I’m not sure he’s going to hit”, and “good arm, but I like him better on the mound”. Forget Alex Rodriguez; we should be happy if Adam Jones turns into Alex Arias.
