Adam Jones Selected To All-Star Game

Adam Jones was the lone member of the Baltimore Orioles selected to the 2009 MLB All-Star game in St. Louis on July 14th.

Jones definitely deserves to go to the all-star game despite slumping through June. How soon we forget how much hes improved since last year. Hes still only 23 years old and will only continue to get better. I think hes going to be a superstar in this league. Its nice to see him get some recognition. I thought George Sherrill deserved to be selected, but there are alot of good relief pitchers in the american league this year. Nick Markakis and Brian Roberts tailed off too much to get picked this year. Though I’m sure Roberts will be back at some point and Markakis will get his first in due time.
