I wanted to congratulate to Orioles CF Adam Jones on being selected as a reserve to the 2009 MLB All-Star game taking place in the new Busch Stadium in St. Louis. While coming down to earth offensively recently, Jones is still by many measures having a great year and it is good that his merits go recognized.
The great thing about the All-Star game is seeing each team represented; not to mention whichever league wins receives home field advantage in the World Series.
In other recent Orioles news, Chris Ray has been placed on the disabled list while RP, Kam Mickolio was called up to take the roster spot. Also, Cesar Izturis will begin a rehab assignment in the minors as his return from his appendicitis nears.
