Odds And Ends: Jones, Peralta, Liriano

Lins for Saturday morning…

  • As ESPN.com's Buster Olney reports, Adam Jones is pleased that the Orioles have so much pitching approaching the majors, but he wants to win now.
  • SI.com's Tom Verducci calls Jones baseball's most improved player and breaks down the outfielder's hot start.
  • Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that Jhonny Peralta is playing third base for now.
  • Rob Neyer of ESPN.com writes that there are no guarantees for Francisco Cervelli once Jose Molina and Jorge Posada are fully healthy. 
  • Neyer adds that the Twins need Francisco Liriano to take his game to the next level and regain the form that saw him dominate the American League in 2006. 
  • In a third piece, Neyer weighs in on the White Sox, concluding that there's no reason to panic in a division that the Sox could take with 85 wins. Still, the team has issues in center field and in the middle infield.
