Jones spent Super Bowl Sunday being poked and prodded
Hickey o’er at the PI reported Jones was in Baltimore for his physical yesterday. It probably means we’ll hear the announcement today or tomorrow.
I almost don’t see what the point of having comments open would be: is there anything new to say about the trade itself or how crazy this whole thing’s been? I feel like we should just come up with a sheet of stock comments you can refer to easily — anti/pro/neutral, numbered
p1) This is a good trade
a1) This is a horrible trade
n1) We won’t know if it’s a good trade for a while
p2) They’re just prospects
a2) Bedard is just a veteran
and so on. Then you could just say “a1. a2, a3, a4.” and the next person can say p1. p2. p3. Save keystrokes all around.
Update: Baker chimes in that Jones is in Baltimore today:
It took a while, but we’ve finally gotten it confirmed that Adam Jones is indeed in Baltimore taking his physical today. Would have liked to have this out to you last night, but unfortunately, we could not get anyone to verify it. Finally, we can. We’d rather be a few hours late than be wrong. Remember, how often folks had said Jones was in Baltimore prior to last night?
