Sports News Without Access, Favor, Or Discretion

Orioles centerfielder Adam Jones was wrongly detained by Canadian authorities Thursday night in the first example of Canada's No Criminal Baseball Players Allowed rule, likely because he shares his name with a troublemaking footballer/video game.

Jones took to Twitter to air his frustrations and, since he was being frank, was forced to take down a Tweet saying that no one from the Orioles organization had bothered to check up on him during his brief incarceration. Jones rallied upon his release, going 1-10 and helping the Orioles get swept — but that probably has more to do with his not exactly setting the world on fire this season. Jones should be happy to know though that, due to conversion rates, it's not that big of a story.
