Huh. Maybe if Adam Jones had devoted just a little less energy to blowing a big bubble and a little more energy to running really fast, the Orioles might have a 1-0 lead after three innings of Game 3. But instead, Jones didn't make a play on Derek Jeter's long drive that turned from likely third out to game-tying triple ...
What you can't see in that clip? Jones got a terrible jump, and never seemed to realize just how well the wind-aided drive was carrying until it was too late.
Most center fielders probably would have made that play most of the time, bubble-blowing or not bubble-blowing.
No, that bubble doesn't look real good right now. But Miguel Gonzalez left a fastball up, and Jeter hit that fastball very hard, and Jones just didn't get a good read on the ball off the bat.
The pink bubble is just the thing we're going to remember.
