I was out watching the game last night and on the ride home I had The Sports Hub on. Adam Jones was declaring that JBJ still sucks and that although Eovaldi is pitching well, he hasn't done anything to impress him.

This is Boston sports radio.
Adam Jones is just so fucking thirsty. At this point he's practically begging for people to acknowledge him.

"Guys, I'm totally like Mike Felger, right? Right? Just like Felgie! Please listen to me. Please. PLEEEEEAAAAASSSSE."
He's pathetic.
Sometimes, those glassed-in radio studios act like mirrors. He was looking at his own face when he said that stuff.
I’m not even sure how anyone can get mad at Adam Jones. The guy is so over the top and so desperate for attention that I genuinely almost feel sorry for the guy at this point.
Listening tonight before Game 4, Adam Jones equated JBJ's Game 3 Grand Slam to an empty net goal.
This liquid-emitting fart deserves his own thread. I hope he gets mounted by a rabid dog.

Adam Jones receives alert on his phone, frantically scrambles to SoSH, sees the new thread and triumphantly exclaims: "YES! Finally!"

Who cares what some washed up Safety has to say about baseball? He should go back to playing Pacman and STFU.

Wait is this Orioles Adam Jones or formerly Pacman Adam Jones? Have to believe there is no way Oriole Adam Jones says that shit.

The one thing you immediately notice when moving away from the Northeast is that the sports media there is fucking looney tunes, with Boston's its uncut core.

It isn't better elsewhere, mind you, just (for the most part) mild and dopey. Edit--actually, no, probably better by default. It isn't "good" is more what I meant.

Then again you read the game threads here and when ~20% of them are people whining about last night's road win to put the Sox up 3-1 in the LCS against a juggernaut of a team or haughty condescension toward the first year manager orchestrating it following their 108 win season you think "maybe this is an accurate reflection of the audience."

It's neither Pacman nor the Oriole outfielder, just a guy specializing in trolling and HotTakez on The Sports Hub on weeknights.

Yup. We get the sports radio we deserve. And Adam Jones is its King.

I've never heard of this guy before seeing this thread. Wish I still hadn't. Not sure why anyone cares about what some troll wth a microphone has to say. I will go back to not caring one bit about his existence.

I googled him and his face is as bad as his words. I, too, do not understand why anyone gives these people the time of day. Why is there even sports radio anymore? Do these people not have the internet?

Whoever cuts his hair should be hanged as a war criminal, and whoever didn’t tell him how bad it looks should either be shot in the kneecap or given 100 bucks depending on whether they’re protecting his feelings or letting him go out in the world looking like a 5th grade latchkey kid.

During last night's drive home he was still banging the JBJ sucks drum, even bringing up his "supposed" defensive prowess, saying, "Talk to me once he's won a Gold Glove."
C'mon. Seriously?

Felger needs to have a talk with his protege and tell him that all-negative, all the time doesn't work. Especially when the guy you're railing against just won the ALCS MVP.

Christian Arcand knows his his shit and is a good radio personality, I have no problem with Jones playing the heel if they turn the show into a Siskel vs. Ebert thing, but so far I don't see evidence of that.

I have found myself gravitating towards his show on my drive home (usually 7 - 8 PM). He is relentlessly negative, but I have come to admire the creativity involved in coming up with a negative spin on each and every bit of news. He has elevated it to an art form. Sometimes he's even right, second-guessing the home-town take on the latest developments. Last night one of the themes was that Al Horford, like every free agent who went to a different team, wanted out of town. He implied that the spin that the Celtics could have had him had they only upped their bid is a face-saving lie. Now you may not believe it, but it's an interesting take. Needless to say, he's been skeptical about Kyrie at least since he skipped game 7 of the Eastern Division finals in 2018. Those of us who gave Kyrie the benefit of the doubt on such matters have had to eat humble pie. Adam Jones was right all along. This may be akin to the clock that is right twice a day, but in any event I am entertained. Maybe you will be too.

I tune in for the same reason. A few months ago Danny Ainge did his weekly interview with Toucher & Rich and said something like, "Kyrie Irving is very low on my list of things to be concerned about with this team." Later that night Adam Jones kicked off the show with "On Ainge's list of problems...Kyrie Irving!" That's some inspired trolling...awesome.
