About four hours before nearly every game, Adam Jones can be found on the field, either getting his running in or tracking balls in center field hit or thrown by first base coach John Shelby. I say this to point out that Jones' perceived regression defensively after he won a Gold Glove last year is not because of a lack of hard work. Jones works his butt off, making it hard to fathom how much he has struggled this season. Sure, he has misplayed some balls and allowed plenty of them to be hit over his head, spurring more debate about whether he plays too shallow. Just as troublesome to me, he still looks indecisive at times. In the third inning last night, Kurt Suzuki went from first to third on Ryan Sweeney's single up the middle and didn't even draw a throw from Jones. Suzuki runs well for a catcher but he was only one or two step past second base when Jones fielded the ball. It looked like he was dead to rites, yet no throw came. Four innings later, Kevin Kouzmanoff, also not exactly a burner, went from first to third on a Sweeney single up the middle. Jones did throw it this time, but not before he double clutched and then fired high and wide, giving third baseman Josh Bell no chance to tag the runner.
