Yeah, I also left off Nick Swisher who was third on the list of age 26.
A little more fun with BR's similar players:
Adam Jones through age 26:
1. Reggie Smith (.287/.366/.489 career, 314 HR)
2. Dave Winfield
3. Sixto Lezcano (.271/.360/.440)
4. Andre Dawson
Makes you feel good about Adam.
how have I never heard of Reggie Smith? He had a great career.

#orioles sign another independent league player. RHP Mike Recchia. Former NYY farmhand. Was 11-3, 2.51 with Frontier League's Windy City
Great player with the Garvey/Cey/Lopes Dodgers of late 70s.
The Red Sox early 70s teams he was with were close but didn't get over the hump til he left and Rice/Lynn came in.

Sixto Lezcano was money
Sorry but could we pick a nickname for the Oze GM which doesn't remind us of our most hated BB rival or of Rangoon's brother?
Are we signing an abnormal amount of indy players or is it just me?
well that IS his nickname. Most others here call him "DD".
I like "the Duke" because it is funny that such an awkward dork has such a cool nickname. And I think his lack of social skills is a good thing - he has zero compassion and will cut bait with sentimental veterans at the drop of a hat ...
More than I can ever remember.

Bovada has #orioles 10/1 to win AL East and 40/1 to win World Series. However, O's now favorites to win Frontier League title #joking
Duke is #29.
From the blog Big League Stew: The comments that new Oakland Athletics shortstop Hiroyuki Nakajima made about GM Billy Beane, that he got me thinking. When it comes to sex appeal, Beane gets a lot of the attention among the general managers … Continue reading →
The comparison pick with Dan Aykroyd cracks me up.

Hearing #orioles are likely to hire former red sox farm director Kent Qualls for minor league baseball ops staff. Administrative side.
#orioles have signed 1B TRAVIS ISHIKAWA and LHP's DANIEL SCHLERETH and ZACH BRADDOCK to minor league contracts w/spring invites.
#orioles have now invited 11 non-roster players to Sarasota.
Schlereth would be the son of Mark Schelerth, former NFL OL and ESPN personality.
Ishikawa, 29, batted .257/.329/.428 in 94 games with Milwaukee in 2012. Schlereth, 26, had 10.29 ERA in 6 games with Detroit.
Braddock, 25, went 1-3, 4.41 ERA in 2010-11 for Milwaukee, Has held LH hitters to .185/.313/.296 line, 28 strikeouts in 99 PAs
ishikawa will be in an oriole uniform at some point next year
im sorry i was confusing...your "Superbowl" was the Redskins losing since you know that the Ravens cant win it all.
Two LOOGY's, plus the Rule V pick and Belfiore. I take that as a sign that either Matusz or Patton will not be in Sarasota this spring.
...or they really haven't given up on Matusz as a starter...
Fine signings. The pitchers were pretty solid RP prospects not too long ago.
Players I'm driving the bandwagon for: Kevin Gregg
Braddock is a great signing. He will be a top notch loogy. He is a late inning guy.
Why? You can never have enough LHP, especially when it comes cheap. Both guys have shown ability. I'm rooting for schlereth to find his game. Always was a big fan of his dad.
What makes you say that? Why are you so high on him?
Schlereth is the perfect NRI relief sign "@BertDbacks: #Orioles have signed Travis Ishikawa & Daniel Schlereth to minor league contracts."
I'm not necessarily "high" on him, I just know we will need him at some point on the bench and he isn't a terrible player
E-Jax reportedly up to 4/50M. That's too much for my taste.
