Adam Jones appears to be open to the idea of a contract extension with the Orioles. His name has been mentioned in trade rumors this winter. "That's up to [the Orioles]. The ball is in their court, right?" Jones said. "Nothing is up to me. I'm under team control for two years, so nothing is up to me. "I like Baltimore," he added. "I've planted some roots here. I like working in the city. If I am fortunate enough to be here a long time, I can build trees from those roots. I think the next few weeks leading up to spring training will be interesting."
