Would You Rather: Bogaerts, Cespedes And Betts Or Stanton?
BOSTON (CBS) — It was another “Would You Rather Wednesday” on The Adam Jones Show’s Game of Jones!
Play along as Rich Keefe hits Jones with the following “Would You Rathers”:
– Would You Rather: Logan Mankins and Michael Hoomanawanui or Josh Kline and Tim Wright?
“I would rather have Mankins and Hoomanawanui, and here’s why: It’s not like we’re talking about having Gronk on or off the team, we’re talking about Wright,” said Jones. “He had a great year last year, the fifth most catches ever as a rookie tight end in the history of the league, but I would take the under on repeating those numbers and aren’t those numbers misleading? Even though Gronk didn’t have 50 catches as a rookie, wasn’t it obvious that Gronk was a beast and a monster going forward.
“Wright is a fringe-type player,” said Jones. “I think those stats are a little misleading.”
– Would You Rather: John Wall and Beal or Kyle Lowry and Demar DeRozan?
“Maybe I’m buying the hype, but I’d rather have the Washington Wizards’ back court,” said Jones. “That comes with all of the drawbacks of John Wall — he can’t really shoot and turns the ball over a ton, but the guy is a blur. I think Beal has some Ray Allen to his game. I think he can be that kind of guy.
“It’s a younger (back court) and I think a couple of years from now it will be the best in the league.”
– Would You Rather: Xander Bogaerts, Mookie Betts and Yoenis Cespedes or Giancarlo Stanton?
“I think I’m still going to go with the Red Sox’ haul. Bogearts for Stanton is already tough enough, and I know you’d have to throw more into the deal, but then you’re throwing Cespedes into it. I don’t mind Cespedes going forward, and if he’s their right fielder and they re-up him I don’t mind him going forward. I prefer Stanton to Cespedes, and there’s a gap there, but how pronounced is that when you have to throw in other guys.
“My sense is I’m going to be in the minority on this one, but I would rather have the Red Sox’ haul,” said Jones.
– Would You Rather: Have the 1st pick or 12th pick in a Fantasy snake draft?
“Not going to over-think it. Give me the first pick,” said Jones. “I would take (LeSean) McCoy.”
– Would You Rather: Taylor Swift or Miley Cyrus?
“Maybe I’m being a little swayed by the music, but I’m going with Miley,” said Jones.
