    Has there been talks at all about getting Adam Jones locked up for at least 3 more years? Don’t want to see him go back to his home town San Diego for a discount. I was pumped when they signed him to the year contract, but now it’s time to get him for long term. He’s been an absolute stud

    More likely he is traded at the deadline. Man I hope this teams pitching steps up and they stay competitive though.

    I'd give him another year if we have him after the deadline. Maybe 2 more years. Depends on what prospects we have, how far away from the pros they are. He has been a plus for this team for sure.

    He's a pro, worthy of a two year deal no matter who we may have in the minors, which ain't a whole lot right now.

    Good insurance if Dyson can't stay above .270.

    Yes, saying BUMP would have made it clear.

    With the probability that David Peralta has passed his prime, Jones
    has sure made more of a contribution than Rojas, who replaced the
    Freight Train in LF and offered nothing at-bat. Or in the field, for
    that matter. Outfield or infield.

    Just because a player has played multiple positions, he can play
    only one at a time. And the less opportunity Torey has to shift
    players between two or three positions in a game, the more
    consistent the team would be. And the less collisions.

    But you never know with the D-backs. They play favorites,
    even to the detriment of the team. Player moves seem to
    have not been based upon skills or stats.

    He brings NOTHING to the team other than "veteran" leadership. His best days are looong gone.

    He's an ok defender...and that's about it.

    Team needs to remake it's entire outfield.

    With the whole season now in the rearview, the best approach is to play younger talent if they can. Did Varsho play some outfield? Souza will be given one more shot as well, imo.
