This wrist injury, which you have known about, better not be serious given that you just signed him to a big deal.

That is concerning since he had to pass a physical to finalize the deal.

I also don't buy that he's not durable - 500+ PA in '08 and '09, 600+ in '10 and '11
Also had 500+ in '06 and '07, 450+ in AAA and 60+ in MLB both seasons (as a Mariner)

He has only been in over 150 games once but did have 149 another year.

119 and 132 games the other 2 years. That's half his Os career where he missed about 20% of the games or more.

Yeah, those are facts, but I don't think they back up your claim about him not being durable.

With him averaging 150 games the last two years, and playing every game of this year; it is pretty hard to claim he is not durable. Pointing out that he missed time at ages 23, and 24 only matters so much, and certainly less than his health since '10.

Yea but you are still talking 10-15 games a year where you aren't able to have him, in his peak/prime years.

We only have 4 seasons to go.

He certainly isnt the durable player Nick has been.

After getting hit in the wrist Sunday, Jones was 1 for 12 in Boston. Even with his 2 hits (and game winning hr today) he is 2 for 10 in this series.

A limited sample size like that might have zero to do with his wrist. Or, he could be trying to fight through the pain, and stay in the lineup. Showalter should decide for Jones, if Jones needs a day off.

As you know Chris I had my doubts, but hard to give him a day off now, he has Monday after all.

As their rookie RP was delivering the game's last pitch, Palmer said that whatever's going on with AJ's writst, "he just can't put the barrel of the bat where he wants it". Palmer finished that sentence while the ball was on its way to the plate... and we know where it landed. Since it was a walk-off, Thorne had no opportunity to reflect aloud on the irony of ole Cy-3 Ring-3 reading the hitter wrong ;-)

I hope my last message didn't offend anyone. I was not trying to be smart or disrespect others' opinions. My only point was a player's durability is a crap-shoot. Some guys are unlucky or try too hard, others suffer major injuries and still produce impressive results. Nobody can predict what might happen so I wouldn't consider it very much for contract purposes.

Roy Firestone has reported that Jones has a couple very minor broken bones in his hand which was HBP by Morrow up in Toronto on May 30th. He and the club feel he can play through it, although Roy stated that Jones is still experiencing pain in that hand.

Since May 30th, Jones is OPS'ing .671 with 4 homers. That said, as Stoner and I discussed in the game thread last night, good players have rough 6 week stretches all the time, and 671 isn't God awful or anything. I'm not willing to say this slump is because of the hand, but it certainly is an interesting correlation nevertheless.
