Would You Rather Have Felix Doubront, Rubby De La Rosa Or Brandon Workman In The Red Sox Rotation?
BOSTON (CBS) – Every night on The Adam Jones Show, Jones and Rich Keefe take a break from the hard-hitting hot sports takes in a lighter segment called Game Of Jones.
On Wednesdays the guys play “Would You Rather,” in which Jones is asked either/or type questions on various topics.
Here are the questions:
1. Would You Rather have Felix Doubront, Rubby De La Rosa or Brandon Workman in the Red Sox rotation going forward.?
“I’m gonna go De La Rosa because I want one of those prospects from the Dodgers trade to work out. Already the trade was great for the Red Sox, but that’s just what I’m rooting for. From what I’ve read scouts are still split on whether Brandon Workman can be a long term starter or reliever. Doubront I don’t need to see again. When he comes back I hope he’s in the bullpen. I don’t need to see him in the starting rotation.
“De La Rosa throws in the high nineties and at some point you hope that fastball can become a real weapon for him. The changeup is already excellent. His changeup is legit. Out of all the guys I think he has the best stuff, so I’ll go with De La Rosa,” said Jones.
2. Would You Rather have Patrick Marleau or Evander Kane on the Bruins?
“I love Evander Kane. I would take him on the Bruins. But I would rather have Marleau. I think he addresses more of what the Bruins need. I would love to have a player of Kane’s upside, but I still think with where the Bruins are at a motivated Patrick Marleau who scores goals is best. I don’t need an inconsistent goal scorer, I need a guy who can finish — Marleau is that guy,” said Jones.
3. Would You Rather have Tom Brady or Russell Wilson for the 2014 season?
“Brady. It’s Brady. I think he’s motivated this year. I was dead wrong about the Seahawks last year. I thought they were going to regress and they end up winning the whole thing, so what do I know? I think Russell Wilson is due to come down a little bit this year. He has a bright future, but I think Tom Brady is motivated and comes in and has a much better year and gets back to the Brady of three, four years ago,” said Jones.
4. Would You Rather watch a US World Cup match or a non-US Olympic hockey game between two good teams?
“I would rather watch the US in the World Cup. I love Olympic hockey don’t get me wrong. I also love the World Cup. I would much rather watch the US Men’s National Team over some generic Olympic hockey game,” said Jones.
5. Lastly, Would You Rather Jennifer Lopez or Jennifer Aniston?
“J-Lo is a triple threat. Next time Jennifer Aniston comes out with a hit let me know; she’s nothing to sneeze at — been in some great films. J-Lo and it’s fairly hands down. No disrespect to Jennifer Aniston but I didn’t even think about this one for very long,” said Jones.
