BOSTON (CBS) – It was a Buy Or Sell Monday night on The Adam Jones Show’s Game Of Jones!
Adam Jones answered the questions while Rich Keefe moderated the segment.
Here are the questions:
Buy or Sell? Justin Masterson Should Be In Red Sox Bullpen When He Returns From DL
“I buy that. I do want to say that I don’t want Steven Wright to remain in the rotation. I hope Wright got the start Sunday, one, because they were out west, but two, you have to get Eduardo Rodriguez or Brain Johnson on track to replace Masterson in the rotation.
“Regardless of who replaces him, I buy that Masterson should go to the bullpen. He has been horrendous as a starter.”
Buy or Sell? Brandon Spikes Will Get A Warm Welcome From Pats Fans
“I buy that, because I think it will all be water under the bridge. He said it was ‘four years a slave’ [in New England] when he signed with the Buffalo Bills. To me, that wasn’t targeting the fan base. He seemed like a relatively popular Patriot when he was here.
“I buy that he gets a warm welcome, if he makes the team. Which I think he will.”
Buy or Sell? Chris Paul Is Overrated
“I buy that as well, and the reason I buy it is because I think there are people who still feel he’s the best point guard in the NBA. He’s right there, but I’m not sure he is. He had a great Game 7 against the Spurs, and I think he, from a tempo standpoint and just controlling the game, he is very, very good and probably better at that than Steph Curry and Russell Westbrook. But I’d take those guys over Chris Paul at this point. It doesn’t mean he’s bad and not an All Star, but I do think he’s overrated.”
Buy Or Sell? With Two First-Round Picks, Celtics Will Trade Up In NBA Draft
“I sell that. They certainly have the ammunition to do it. They could make another Kelly Olynyk-type deal where you’re giving up second rounders to move up. My guess is they’ll maneuver around the board a bit, maybe maneuver into future drafts. I just don’t think they have enough capital to get to where they want to go.
“They have four picks this year; two first and two seconds. But is that going to get you into the Top 5-8 picks? I don’t think so without giving up roster players… I think they can stay where they are and get a good player. Sixteen is a spot where Danny [Ainge] actually drafts pretty well, so I’d stay there.”
Buy or Sell? We’ll Have A Triple Crown Winner This Year
“I sell it; don’t we do this every year? Somebody wins the Kentucky Derby, then the Preakness against a reduced and lackluster field, and then they go out for the Belmont and for whatever reason – pressure on the horse maybe? – [they lose]. We go through this every year.
“I sell the idea we have a Triple Crown winner, which is a shame. It would be nice to see some history with American Pharaoh.”
