Is Adam Jones the next Albert Belle?
There was a nasty rumor started today by someone called Stan the Fan while a guest on ESPN radio. He started spewing information about the halted trade between the Orioles and the Mariners, saying that it was because the Orioles found out that Adam Jones has a degenerative hip condition. Roch Kubatko, from the Baltimore Sun, confirms that the deal's hang-up has something to do with Adam Jones, but Stan the Fan is treading on dangerous ground. We haven't heard anything about a hip up to this point. I certainly hope that this isn't true, because this would add a very sour taste to this trade unless the Mariners increase their offer.
