Adam Jones could have used this oversized glove Wednesday

August 18, 2011|By Matt Vensel

If you caught the highlights from the Orioles' loss to the Athletics on Wednesday afternoon, you probably grimaced as you watched Adam Jones let a ball hit by Brandon Allen bounce over his head in centerfield. He then kicked the ball around for a second or two before chucking it into the infield as Allen crossed home plate.

Simply put, Jones looked like Felix Pie out there.

But had he borrowed the glove of Yankees pitcher Luis Ayala, embarrassment could have been avoided.
