BOSTON (CBS) – It was an Over/Under Tuesday night on The Adam Jones Show’s “Game of Jones.”
In this latest edition, Jones and Rich Keefe predict the Over/Under on the following topics:
Number of trades the Red Sox make by the trade deadline: Over/Under 2.5 trades
“I’m going to say over because there’s still a lot of guys they have to move, or they should move,” said Jones. “If last year you made two trades, and you’re going to be in more of a sell mode this year, it’s over. The Red Sox need to move guys like Jonny Gomes, Jake Peavy, Andrew Miller and Stephen Drew — there’s way too many guys on the roster like that. Maybe it’s wishful thinking, but I hope they work out two or three trades.”
Number of sacks by Chandler Jones in 2014: Over/Under 14 sacks
“That’s a big number. The addition of Darrelle Revis and Brandon Browner could easily give Jones two more sacks, just by covering the receiver for that extra half of a second,” said Jones. “That, plus you hope there’s some continued development and growth from year two to year three, so I’m going to go over.”
Points per game for Evan Turner on the Celtics next season: Over/Under 10 points
“I’m going to say over. I can’t imagine they brought him in here to not play. If he’s on the court playing he’s a double digit guy,” said Jones.
Average annual value for Jon Lester on his next contract: Over/Under $25.5 million
“I think under. $25 million is still a big number. Jon Lester is cashing in at the right time, and if he’s coming back to Boston I still think $25 million is the right number,” said Jones.
Number of bands you’ve heard of at Mayhem Fest: Over/Under 3 bands
“Mayhem Fest is not up my alley,” said Jones. “So I’m going under.”
